LONG GROVE, Ill. (Feb. 16, 2016) — MAT Holdings Inc.'s Bendix Brakes brand has relaunched the Fleet MetLok line of disc brake pads and rotors for use in severe-duty applications, as well as service and pursuit vehicles.
MAT said the product line has been enhanced to provide improved friction performance and coverage. Fleet MetLok semi- and low-metallic brake pads feature friction formulations that the firm claimed provide noise-free performance, fade and heat tolerance, durability and “excellent” stopping in demanding applications.
They also feature a three-layer shim, burnishing compound to reduce break-in time and a hardware kit when applicable, MAT said.
The Fleet MetLok rotors are built with Alloyed Carbon Performance Castings, which MAT said are designed to provide superior thermal stability and strength, while ensuring safe operation in all driving conditions. The rotors also are coated with the Bendix proprietary heat-resistant SurfaceLok coating, which extends rotor life by reducing corrosion.
The Fleet MetLok product line is designed for use in heavy hauling, towing, frequent stopping, and pursuit applications, such as in work vans, tow trucks, taxis, police vehicles and construction pickup trucks.
