SOUTHFIELD, Mich. — Federal-Mogul Motorparts has introduced Abex-brand premium brake rotors for the heavy-duty market, designed to work in conjunction with its Air Disc Brake (ADB) pads.
The new products are available across eight different Class 8 applications, covering nearly 98 percent of the HD ADB market, the company said.
Abex offers a pad and rotor combination for the most popular Bendix, Meritor and Wabco ADB systems.
Abex rotors feature E-Shield protective coating to reduce corrosion and rusting on the attaching surface. Each rotor contains a directionally smooth finish; precision mill balance technology to prevent common performance issues, such as pedal pulsation and brake noise caused by improper balance; and a micro finish to aid proper seating of the friction material, reducing pad break-in time.
"More and more fleets have started utilizing ADB applications, and as such, we recognize their desire for a premium solution to all their wheel-end needs," said Dennis Griffin, product manager, Abex, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. "Abex rotors not only offer the quality that customers expect, but also address common complaints such as unsightly corrosion of the rotors and ease of installation."
