BROADVIEW, Ill. Bosch has introduced a new series of QuietCast Medium Duty Premium Disc Brake Pads, expanding the QuietCast brake products line with the addition of 24 popular Medium Duty Brake Pad numbers.
QuietCast Medium Duty Premium Disc Brake Pads are manufactured using OE friction formulas or friction formula upgrades, Bosch says. Coverage now extends to Class 3 - 7 truck applications. QuietCast Medium Duty Pads are designed to give medium duty vehicles superior braking performance: stopping power, increased pad life, quiet stops, low dust and great pedal feel, the company says.
“Our blends of friction material are application-selected based on a host of factors that affect vehicle braking. Obvious factors include vehicle weight and typical duty cycles for medium duty truck,” said David Terry, senior product manager for friction, Bosch Automotive Aftermarket Brake Components North America. “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.
“Bosch is the OE brake system supplier for many of these medium duty applications, and we are excited to continue our tradition of tailoring our OE products for the Aftermarket,” Terry said.
Bosch is a proud supporter of the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association’s Know Your Parts education and awareness campaign. This initiative promotes the importance of quality brand name aftermarket parts backed by full service suppliers, and its impact on delivering reliable products to today’s motorists.
