Abex, a Federal-Mogul Motorparts brand, has introduced a new series of brake rotors for the heavy-duty market. Designed to work in conjunction with its air disc brake (ADB) pads, these new products are available across 8 different Class 8 applications, covering nearly 98% of the heavy-duty ADB market, the company said. Abex offers a pad and rotor combination for Bendix, Meritor and Wabco ADB systems.
Features of the Abex rotos, according to the company, include: E-Shield protective coating technology that makes the rotors easier to remove; due to less corrosion and rusting on the attaching surface; and precision mill balance technology to prevent common performance issues such as pedal pulsation and brake noise caused by improper balance. Each rotor’s micro finish aids in proper seating of the friction material, reducing pad break-in time.
