DON expands commercial vehicle brake pad range

TMD Friction has expanded its DON range of commercial vehicle braking products with the introduction of a new truck brake pad.

The addition to the DON range provides an aftermarket brake pad for the Mercedes-Benz Actros, Antos, Arocs and Econic heavy commercial vehicles, fitting either the front or rear axle.

DON’s new brake pad CVP131K is compatible with Wabco Maxx 22L braking systems that deliver some of the industry’s best lightweight caliper technology.

The new brake pad is manufactured with TMD Friction’s lightweight technology, featuring a lighter backing plate, which is compensated for by an underlayer with a lower specific weight than steel, but retains high durability and load-bearing capacity.

The new brake pad CVP131K is manufactured with DON’s high end 8750 friction material, proven across various high-calibre disc brake applications for various commercial vehicle manufacturers.

DON 8750 is a universal disc brake material with high friction level, low-wear, excellent frictional stability and disc compatibility. The material covers all commercial vehicle applications across truck, bus and trailer, covered by ECE-R90 regulations to surpass legislated performance requirements.

DON has been at the forefront of brake friction technology for over 100 years. With a reputation for uncompromising quality and reliability, TMD Friction says DON has retained its position as a strong market player in developing and supplying braking solutions for commercial vehicles, buses and coaches.
