Federal-Mogul Motorparts has expanded its range of Abex Reduced Stopping Distance (RSD) certified commercial grade friction linings to include a 23,000-lb. tractor lining. The Abex RX 6297 lining is available through leading commercial vehicle parts distributors across North America.
In testing conducted by an ISO-certified facility, using a tractor equipped with a 23,000-lb. drive axle and 14,600-lb. steer axle, the Abex RX 6297 lining delivered under loaded conditions a stopping distance of just 217 ft. at 60 mph.
The highly advanced, copper-free, crack-resistant lining is engineered to help maintain like-new braking performance while experiencing minimal swell and growth and offering excellent lining and drum wear.
“It is vital for fleets to maintain the original braking performance of their vehicles, particularly given the increased awareness of RSD requirements,” said Dennis Griffin, product manager, commercial vehicle friction, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “Abex RSD- certified brake linings provide the safety, security and performance demanded both by leading OE brake system manufacturers and commercial and private fleets.”
