TRUCK PADS

The technology used in the manufacture of the LL28 quality are deep mould presses capable of individually controlling, that is, unit per unit, the pressure, temperature and the processing time.

With this technology production homogenization, which implies the best results of the product independently of the batch it pertains to.

Technical advantages of the manufacture of brake pads in deep moulds:

1. Control of mixture dosage: The density of the pads is the same throughout the entire surface with which problems of premature wear is avoided.

2. Control of the pressure distribution in the entire surface of the pad: The homogeneous wear of the material, preventing the appearance of fissures, cracks and other problems that can put the safety of the vehicle in danger.

3. Control of the temperature in curing: The resins, rubber and other organic elements melt and flow equally through the volume of the pads, homogenising the material’s frictional characteristics.

Work in quarries:

The study on wear was carried out on 10 combinations (tractor and trailer) dedicated to international transport. The results are spectacular regarding the kilometres that the vehicles were able to travel with the same brake pads. Five tractor- trailers were equipped with the REMSA Heavy Duty Line material, which were capable of surpassing the 350,000 in tractors and the 240,000 km in platforms. Two years were used in carrying out these trials, and even today the pads from the tests are still mounted on some of the trucks.

The results obtained are very similar to those contributed by the two previous tests, that is, the three materials have a wearing that is capable of resisting more than 200,000 km. The tests on wear were carried out from the beginning of the development of the new quality. The most tested reference was that which was mounted on the axle SB7000, but it was not the only one as others were used according to the fleet that collaborated with REMSA Heave Duty Line and its necessities.
