Marathon adds new air disc pads for commercial trucks

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,” according to the company.

DiscStar Highway Premium is a high performance commercial vehicle disc pad that features rotor compatibility and shows up to 33% less brake rotor wear, the company added. “DSHP uses a proven, reliable attachment method to ensure a high mechanical bond between the friction material and the steel backing plate for a high resistance to shearing. The rapid heat dissipation characteristic of DiscStar pads is a key feature resulting in its longer pad life and dependable stopping power,” Marathon said.
