NRS Brakes recently celebrated the launch of its new galvanized brake-pad line, as well as a new brake-pad program for fleets.
NRS Brakes’ new brake-pad program for national fleet accounts covers vehicles up to Class 7 and is tailored to the individual fleet operator’s vehicles, the company says, adding the program is designed to offer the best ROI for any fleet and consists of preferred pricing, an annual rebate and other size/volume incentives.
Galvanized brake-pad sets purchased under the program have mechanically attached premium friction on a galvanized-steel backing plate. This galvanized-steel plate helps fight against rust and corrosion and allows the friction to wear out instead of fall apart, NRS Brakes says. This construction prolongs the life of brake pads since the protected steel will not rot and fall apart before the friction has a chance to wear down. Mechanical retention also has been specified by OE manufacturers on many medium- and heavy-duty applications.
