LONG GROVE, Ill. (Feb. 17, 2017) — Mat Holdings Inc. has launched a Bendix Brakes Premium brand product line for late-model vehicles.
The Bendix Premium product line includes automotive brake pads, discs, shoes and brake shoe kits.
According to the company, Bendix friction products feature copper-free formulations, putting them at the leading edge of environmentally conscious brake design.
By 2025, all brake manufacturers selling in the U.S. must eliminate copper from friction formulations in order to meet regulations in California and Washington, enacted due to concerns about the effect of copper from brake friction materials on the environment.
Mat Holdings said Bendix Premium brake pads feature four-layer noise eliminating shims, are available in ceramic and semi-metallic formulations, and include hardware when applicable.
Bendix Premium rotors are platform-specific, and the rotors are sold in pairs within responsible weight limits. They are made in Europe, the company claimed, to high standards of quality, precise, OEM-driven machining specs, OE-specified design and vane configuration, and a premium coating to protect from corrosion.
