Tenneco Expands Monroe Brakes Program With Monroe Severe Solution Brake Pads

New commercial grade brake pads engineered for premium stopping performance under severe braking conditions and to reduce vehicle maintenance costs, company says.


MONROE, Mich. – Tenneco has expanded its Monroe Brakes product line into the growing severe-duty friction market – including emergency and utility applications, delivery trucks, school buses and many other hard-working commercial vehicles – with a broad new line of Monroe Severe Solution brake pads. Monroe Severe Solution brake pads are engineered to help fleets reduce brake maintenance and repair costs through longer pad and rotor life.

Now available for hundreds of popular severe-duty applications, Monroe Severe Solution brake pads include ultra-premium friction materials formulated to provide exceptional high-temperature stability, fade resistance and longer service life. According to the company, dynamometer testing has shown that Monroe Severe Solution pads help dramatically increase rotor life while offering greater sustained stopping power at high temperatures compared to many OE products.

“Tenneco now offers a total package of ultra-premium light-duty and severe-duty friction solutions to help distributors and service providers increase their sales in these very important market categories,” said Tom Connelly, Monroe Brakes national marketing and sales manager, Tenneco. “Our new Severe Solution pads outperform many competing products in terms of overall cost per mile while providing the reliable braking power fleets need under the most punishing conditions.”

Many Monroe Severe Solution pads include a sensory locking plate feature that helps enhance pad life and minimize pad delamination, vibration and noise, especially under severe braking conditions. Monroe Severe Solution pads also come complete with noise reduction hardware kits and electronic wire wear sensors (where applicable) to help technicians perform complete, high quality brake repairs in less time, the company says.

In addition to Monroe Severe Solution brake pads, Tenneco offers ultra-premium Total Solution ceramic and semi-metallic pads and premium Monroe ProSolution pads along with a full line of brake shoes. These products are available through leading vehicle parts providers throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
