This is part three of a three-part article. For non-asbestos organic (NAO) brake pads, please see part one, for low-metallic compounds, please see part two.

In the previous parts, we discussed brake pads and its different compounds for passenger and performance cars. What about commercial vehicles, trucks, utes or cars that stop frequently or often tow heavy loads?

Hardworking vehicles such as utes, trucks, vans or cars that do frequent towing, require a brake pad that can resist brake fade, lasts extra-long and still stay quiet. Semi-metallic brake pads such as the Bendix Heavy Duty range are highly suited to these vehicles. Containing relatively large amounts of steel and iron, the brake pads are specially designed to be fibrous. This allows gasses that formed during the manufacturing process to be released, increasing the structural integrity of the brake pad. Bendix Heavy Duty brake pads have an Insulayer to increase its endurance and braking performance, without lowering brake rotor life. It also generates less brake dust, and Bendix’ proprietary brake shims with rubber coating reduces noise from the brake pads.

By increasing brake pad and rotor life, running costs for commercial vehicles are lowered by saving in servicing costs and spending less time off the road.

The choice of friction material will impact on your braking experience which is why it’s important to match your driving needs and vehicle with the right brake pad formulation. Visit HERE to select and fit the right Bendix brake pad for your driving style.

Make sure that at your next brake service, ask your mechanic for the right Bendix brake pads to suit your driving style, or Bendix products are available from leading automotive stockist. Click HERE to locate your nearest stockist.
