Better Performance, Durability and Coverage with NEW Raybestos® Air Disc Brakes

Mar 27, 2012

Applications Available Now for Class 7/8 Trucks, Transit Busses and School Busses

Raybestos® brand air disc brakes – a member of the Affinia family of brands – offer better stopping power and unmatched durability… because they meet or exceed the original design and performance requirements.

The new part numbers cover more than 87 popular Class 7/8 truck, transit bus and school bus applications from major OE manufacturers… including Bendix, Knorr-Bremse and Meritor. The new air disc brakes are currently available and ready to ship.

Raybestos products easily tolerate the higher speeds and increased horsepower of today’s heavy-duty vehicles and school busses. They also accommodate the shorter stopping distances required by current FMVSS 121regulatory standards for Class 8 vehicles.

Raybestos air disc brakes have the stopping power to tackle mountains, transit, and stop-and-go service requirements. For better fade resistance… they reduce heat build-up to maintain consistent stopping power during stop-and-go driving and steep downgrades. For added durability… they are heat treated for the longest possible service life. Where applicable, installation hardware is also included.

Three steps prevent Raybestos brake linings from cracking and breaking apart:

    1. 1) Di-chromate and powder coated finishes prevent corrosion… this maximizes service life by adding an extra barrier to water and de-icing chemicals.


    1. 2) Utilize a mechanical attachment with NRSÒ technology… this provides the most secure bond to withstand extreme heat and chemicals to ensure safe braking performance in emergency conditions. Raybestos air disc brake pads can withstand 500 hours in salt spray (according to the standards of the American Society of Testing Materials).


  1. 3) FMVSS 121 testing for proven longevity… extensively tested in the lab and in the field for industry leading service life.

    • Tim D:Bleeding is not to get clean fluid coming tuhrogh – it is to remove any air bubbles (air will compress, fluid will not – that is what gives the spongy feel), although this is a fairly simple job it really isn’t one you want to bodge, unless you are absolutely comfortable that you have done the job properly take it to a mechanic, if possible watch what they do, so you can do it too.Brake fluid is hydroscopic (will attract water) and if you use it in damp conditions it can be contaminated, as mentioned never use old brake fluid, once opened it will deteriorate.

      • Yeah i’ve hear and read about these removers befroe, but acutllay never seen them over here.But i just found out about stone tumblers or something like that and found some cheap ones on ebay. the good thing is they also remove rust and you can do so many other funny things with these, so i think i’ll buy one of these istead of paint remover

      • It will probably be dinrefeft based on your state. For mine, I had to display knowledge of the blinkers, hi-beam/lo-beam fog lights, horn, and a really meticulous attention to the rear view windows.Have someone-like a parent or a car-savvy friend- go over all that stuff with you a few days (not the night before) with the car you’ll be testing in. They’ll probably be more than glad to help you and will be able to understand your nervousness. Make sure all of your car’s components work, that way, you’ll save any extra time at the chore that is the DMV.Try not to think about the test day in and day out, or you’ll end up having dreams about it, like I did.Best of luck to you, and I think you’ll be fine.
