MONROE, MI – Tenneco Inc. has introduced Monroe Dynamics disc brake pads and shoes, which covering the latest air disc brake systems from Workhorse, Knorr Bremse, Meritor Wabco, and other manufacturers. This product line expansion builds on the brand’s coverage for hundreds of medium- and heavy-duty commercial-vehicle applications.

The Monroe Brakes product line now covers a broad range of trucks, vans, and utility fleet vehicles, including trucks equipped with pneumatic disc brake systems. This coverage in pneumatic disc brake systems is designed to help commercial-vehicle parts distributors increase sales by expanding into growing market segments.

Monroe Dynamics brake pads and shoes for many applications are packaged complete with all hardware and related components.

Each Monroe Dynamics semi-metallic brake pad features an application-specific friction material developed and tested to meet the vehicle’s unique operating requirements. In addition, these friction materials are secured to their backing plate with an OE constant-pressure manufacturing process called positive molding. This provides a better bond and denser friction material, resulting in less resin versus conventional flash-molded products. This, in turn, reduces pedal fade and helps ensure outstanding stopping performance.
