Bendix Disc Pads

Disc Pads for new generation vehicles

Superior Disc Surface Protection

Bendix have the latest generation of disc brake pads for a new generation of heavier trucks, prime movers and trailers. Only a braking specialist like Bendix can develop superior pads designed for harsh road conditions and operating demands. As more trucks and trailers switch to disc brakes, Bendix Protrans disc pads will bring fleet operators advanced levels of reliability, reduced noise and will offer competitive value on a cost per kilometre basis.

Bendix Protrans disc pads reduce thermal damage to rotors, which can cause micro and radial cracking, Protrans has a high tolerance to rotor metallurgy variances, because we use less abrasive materials, and lubricants that protect the disc rotor surface – unlike other aggressive European style materials. Thanks to this advanced ‘surface technology’, friction can be achieved with minimal surface damage to pads and rotors thus extending both pad and rotor life.

Superior Friction Stability

Superior Pad Life

Using ceramic metallic material with a friction rating of GG, the extreme wear life of Bendix Protrans disc pads will become apparent over time. This OE quality material can withstand extremely high operating temperatures, which means exceptional pad and rotor life with minimal risk of brake fade. In all applications, drivers will appreciate the security of predictable, stable friction levels across a range of operating temperatures.

Bendix Protrans disc pads have a strong, predictable friction level regardless of temperature, speed or axle load. This material is designed for harsh conditions, and is validated to OE specification, for low wear and long life, particularly at high temperatures. The range includes references to cover most popular truck and trailer applications.

What is Protrans?

Based on a European heritage with an OE background, Bendix have localised this to meet harsh and demanding on-road conditions. Protrans is manufactured using upgraded processes featuring QS9000 quality controls and an ISO14001 environmental accreditation. With an FF rating (SAE J661a test procedure) and average friction level of 0.38, Protrans provides excellent wear and drum effect characteristics. It’s also very quiet in all operations and has a maximum continuous working temperature (MCWT) of 300˚C. The Protrans brake lining is unique as it puts a film on the drum, without doubt, the biggest difference Protrans has brought to operators.

When Should Protrans Be Used?

Protrans is a multi purpose material that can be used in a range of applications including heavy duty trucks, light truck, trailer and common general purpose axles. The range includes references to cover most popular commercial vehicles and trailers.

The requirement to achieve a long service life and reduce downtime has never been greater. Larger trailer configurations, increased payloads combined with technological engine developments, with greater emphasis on safety, means that the braking system of commercial vehicles is subject to greater demands than ever before. Bendix understands that commercial vehicle operators must get maximum life and value from all vehicle components, particularly those often replaced items such as brakes. Brake linings are one of the most important safety elements within the braking system of heavy commercial vehicles. With this in mind, Bendix developed Protrans to save owners and fleet operator’s time and money, with less vehicle down time in the workshop.

Bendix Brake Shoe Sets

The Brake Shoe Principle

Tying up money in recycled exchange shoes has been either too expensive, is a poorer quality substitute or both! Bendix has a range of non-exchange brand new Brake Shoe Sets consisting of OE quality shoes lined with long-lasting Protrans or economical Fleetrans braking materials, which are available either as riveted or bonded. For about the same price as a recycled shoe you can now fit brand new brake shoes for greater reliability and no more core deposits. It means operators and owners will save time and money through less down time, greater mileage and no recycling costs.

Features: » OE quality shoes » ADR Compliant » Manufactured to ISO 9001 Standards » Electro hardened journal ends » Indented webbing » Steel rivets » Radius Ground

The Bendix single use shoe is a guarantee of reliability in a market where shoes are remanufactured and used over and over. Both the Bendix shoe and the lining are manufactured to OE specification and meet ADR requirements.

Strength and Durability

With electro hardened journal ends to help reduce the wear rate. Electroplating and indented webbing provide additional strength, while steel rivets give greater reliability at high temperatures. Each shoe is radius ground after riveting or bonding to provide ease of fitment and optimum efficiency. Tests have shown that Bendix Shoe Sets will last as long or longer than OE**. The range includes references to cover popular commercial vehicles and trailers.



» No more core deposits » Duty of care » Dependable and reliable » Reduced shoe wear rates » Easy Fit, no fuss
