Webb Wheel Products Inc's Platinum wheel-end assemblies combining both Platinum drum and aluminum hub are provided for popular trailer axles and “R” series rear axles. Additional axle applications will be offered later in 2002. This combination saves up to 16 pounds per axle.

The Platinum brake drum was developed using a new material for which Webb has a patent pending. The product delivers extended life through low wear, resistance to heat checking, and superior strength. Laboratory testing confirms that high heat transfer properties of the material combined with its strength creates a lightweight brake drum that Webb says exceeds the performance of a standard brake drum.

More information can be obtained by contacting Webb, 2310 Industrial Dr SW, Cullman AL 35055.
