SOUTHFIELD, Mich. — Federal-Mogul L.L.C. has expanded its Abex series of air disc brake products for popular commercial vehicle braking applications.
Abex ADBHD1369 is being produced at Federal-Mogul's ISO/TS 16949:2009-certified manufacturing facility in Glasgow, Ky.
Abex ADBHD1369 is equipped with OE-style green coat stripes, which provide consistent performance throughout the life of the pad. The green coat is a proprietary, engineered material that is applied to the friction surface to aid the initial effectiveness of the brake friction material, the company said.
The pads also feature a mechanical retention system that supports the friction material from shearing from the back plate.
Abex ADBHD1369 comes with a complete installation hardware kit and meets global ISO performance and wear standards, the company said. It also conforms to 2025 copper-free requirements of less than 0.05 percent by weight, with no copper added to the formulation.
The pads come in re-engineered packaging with new graphics and design. The new packaging was constructed to offer better protection to the product, which could reduce damage often incurred during shipping, the company said.
"As more fleets begin to purchase air disc brakes, we have seen an increased demand for our products, namely Abex ADBHD1369," said Bill Nunnery, vice president, commercial vehicles and business development, Federal-Mogul Motorparts.
"In addition to being manufactured in the U.S. at our Glasgow facility, which has the highest level of quality certification available to friction manufacturers, these brakes also feature an OE-quality formulation for enhanced stopping power with extended disc pad and rotor life."
