Marathon Brake Systems introduces DiscStar Highway Premium (DSHP) brake pads designed for air disc brake systems used in on-highway truck, tractor steer and drive axles and motor coach applications. DSHP is premium low-metallic friction material rated for 23,000 lbs. and formulated to provide a longer pad and rotor life than OE pads, while delivering a significant noise reduction, the company says.
According to Marathon, DiscStar Highway Premium features exceptional rotor compatibility and shows up to 33% less brake rotor wear than leading OE linings, features rapid heat dissipation resulting in longer life, and its attachment method ensures a high mechanical bond between the friction material and the steel backing plate for a high resistance to shearing.
