QuietCast Medium Duty Premium Disc Brake Pads are manufactured using OE friction formulas or friction formula upgrades, and coverage now extends to Class 3 - 7 truck applications.
"Our blends of friction material are application-selected based on a host of factors that affect vehicle braking," says David Terry, senior product manager for friction, Bosch Automotive Aftermarket Brake Components North America. "Obvious factors include vehicle weight and typical duty cycles for medium-duty truck. But more subtle considerations include rotor diameter and thickness, and even caliper bracketry. Friction compounds are carefully selected to assure quiet, reliable, and long-lived braking on all types of vehicles."
QuietCast Medium Duty Pad packaging is differentiated to reflect the medium-duty vehicle applications and the associated product attributes. The packaging's color graphic label includes an image of a medium-duty pad to make it easier for the installer to recognize the box as a medium-duty application.
