Marathon offering OEM-quality brake shoes

Marathon Brake Systems is offering OEM-quality brake shoes, lined shoes, and shoe kits. All of Marathon’s brake shoes feature electro-deposition coating (e-coating) for rust jacking prevention.

The brake shoes are manufactured from thick, high-grade carbon steel to ensure maximum life and safety and are seam-welded along the shoe's entire table/web seam for added strength and durability, the company said. Precise monitoring of critical dimensions ensure brake shoes will provide uniform, balanced braking performance and prevent “hot spots,” which can shorten friction material life, Marathon added.

The shoes include hi-density friction materials and a hardware kit with the line shoes. All the hardware kits are built to OEM industry standards and contain quality components such as stainless steel bushings, heat-treated and zinc-chromate coated rollers and powder-coated springs, all designed to be rust resistant and improve the reliability of the brakes.

Heavy-duty springs are certified to 125 lbs.-ft. of resistance and tested to 1 million cycles.
