CMB 08T

20K STANDARD BRAKE LINING

Brake Lining

Contrary to what you might have heard, a higher axle rating, for example, a 23K material versus a 20K material doesn’t in fact make it better. For many commercial vehicle applications, a 20K material is all the brake block they will ever need. Manufacturer’s materials behave differently from one another and have dissimilar performance characteristics. Some 23K materials may actually be too aggressive for an application and create safety issues. CMB 08T is used extensively in OEM and aftermarket channels due to its universal appeal. It consistently delivers excellent stopping power, good lining life and low drum wear in line haul or moderate vocational applications. In the right brake configuration, CMB 08T will comply with the new stopping distance that has been legislated for New OEM trucks and tractors.
