Bendix has grown its Protrans brake pad offerings for Isuzu, Hino and Fuso vehicles, catering for both late and earlier model examples.
In some cases, range coverage spans back to the early 1990s, catering to the reliability of some of the older trucks.
The Bendix ProTrans Disc Pad range is available for selected Isuzu models including variants from across Elf, N, F, Series.
It is also available for Hino 300 Series, Fuso’s Canter and Fighter ranges, and the heavy duty Quon from UD Trucks.
The ProTrans Disc Pad range includes improved surface technology, high temperature resistance and reduced wear rates which contribute to reliable and high-performance braking as well as reduced running costs.
The pads offer reduced brake noise, and easy installation for mechanics.
At the heart of the range is Bendix’s application of high-quality friction materials which are essential to meet the braking requirements of modern commercial vehicles.
The pads provide a strong, predictable friction level regardless of the temperature, speed or axle load.
There’s also titanium bedding-in technology to ensure a positive pedal feel right from new.
Bendix says the new products have been extensively tested in Australia’s most difficult operating environments and climatic conditions to ensure they can handle the force of breaking under load.
The range also meets ECE Regulation 90 (ECE-R90), which specifies the design, construction, performance requirements and test protocols for strict European regulations.
This includes testing for braking capabilities, speed sensitivity, cold performance and other parameters.
The company also offers brake shoe kits and special heavy-duty ProTrans HD Disc Pads for selected models working in extreme applications.
