New Monroe Brakes Catalog Highlights Growth Of Brand’s Friction Program

Brand now offers high-quality friction solutions for most light- and medium-duty vehicle applications.


MONROE, Mich. – Tenneco’s Monroe Brakes friction program continues to expand into additional product and application categories, as seen in the brand’s new master catalog featuring new friction product lines and several new part numbers for late-model applications.

121655MonroeBra_00000071001The 2013-2014 Monroe Brakes catalog highlights the continued expansion of the brand’s Total Solution line of ultra-premium brake pads, with coverage now reaching 97 percent of domestic and foreign nameplate applications. Monroe Total Solution pads are delivered complete with electronic wire wear sensors, noise elimination hardware, sensory locking plate (SLP) backing plates and many other ultra-premium features designed to help service providers complete more high-quality brake repairs every day, the company states. Monroe premium brake shoes include all pins and levers needed for each application.

Also featured in the new catalog are Monroe ProSolution brake pads and the all-new Monroe Severe Solution friction line for trucks, vans, buses and emergency vehicles.

The Monroe ProSolution line, offering up to 92 percent sales coverage for many wholesalers, features premium-technology brake pads offered at a mid-grade price. Many ProSolution pad sets also include noise elimination hardware.

New Monroe Severe Solution brake pads are the brand’s newest ultra-premium friction solution, with 88 part numbers offering exceptional quality and coverage for “severe-duty” applications, according to the company. Among the ultra-premium technologies featured in this line are the Monroe brand’s SLP backing plate that helps to enhance friction-pad-to-backing-plate retention in more severe braking environments.

Tenneco also offers a small accessory line of special-design foreign application electronic wire wear sensors that cannot be included in the pad set box. For most other applications, Monroe wire wear sensors are included in the box with Total Solution pad sets.

“Many shop owners and technicians have switched to Monroe Brakes because they understand that they can complete more high-quality brake jobs and attract new customers through our innovative technologies and value-added hardware kits and other components,” said Tom Connelly, Monroe Brakes national marketing and sales manager, Tenneco. “Our new catalog is another important benefit in terms of a single, ‘go-to’ resource for world-class friction products covering millions of vehicles.”

Now LED lights are everywhere, and we’re all familiar with them, even in our homes, but the automotive industry has reaped the benefits as much as, if not more than, any other industry. Just like a diode, LEDs allow current flow in only one direction. When current, or electron flow occurs, photons are released.
