TRP® Reman Brake Linings Compared
July 26, 2019
It’s important to understand the different grades of brake lining the TRP Reman Brake Program offers and to request a lining tailored to your application.
The TRP 20,000-lb Premium-grade friction material is formulated with low thermal-expansion characteristics. It provides excellent performance characteristics in demanding applications. The premium-grade lining is engineered to handle the high braking duty cycles encountered in city pickup and delivery as well as highway applications where steep grades are encountered. It provides excellent lining life, superb stopping power, and superior resistance to fade.
The TRP 20,000-lb Standard-grade friction material exhibits good wear and fade characteristics. It is engineered to provide exceptional value in price and performance. It is ideally suited for medium-duty on-highway, dry freight, intermodal leasing, and straight truck applications. It provides good lining life, good stopping power, and excellent value and performance.
20,000-lb Line Haul
The TRP 20,000-lb Line Haul is a value-grade friction material. It is best suited for light- and medium-duty on-highway trailer, straight truck, lift axle, and tractor applications. It is uniquely formulated to provide consistent braking performance and good lining life.
The TRP 23,000-lb Premium-grade friction material is engineered for high performance. Because this lining is stable under high temperatures, it exhibits minimal swell and growth (less than one percent), minimal fade, excellent stopping power, superior recovery, and minimal drum wear.
The TRP 23,000-lb Standard-grade friction material is the most popular lining in the TRP brake friction portfolio. This is a workhorse of a lining, best suited for on-highway tractor and trailer applications. Engineered for stability, the lining provides good wear and fade characteristics, consistent braking, good lining life, and good stopping power while exhibiting low noise.
23,000-lb Line Haul
The TRP 23,000-lb Line Haul is a value-grade friction material. It is best suited for on-highway trailer, straight truck, and tractor applications. It is uniquely formulated to provide consistent braking performance and good lining life.
