Upgrade your fleet or tow vehicle’s braking performance with Hawk Performance’s SuperDuty, Severe-Duty compound!
Hawk’s SuperDuty Ferro-Carbon material is engineered for severe-duty professional truck fleets as well as trucks and SUVs frequently towing heavy loads. This material offers unmatched performance under high inertia and/or repetitive braking applications.
To drive safely with heavy payloads it is critical to have brakes that operate properly. Commercial fleet trucks and light trucks/SUVs carrying or towing heavy payloads experience high braking temperatures. Higher temperatures contribute to premature brake pad and rotor wear and directly effect brake pad fade or loss of friction. Hawk Performance’s SuperDuty product is a severe-duty pad that has an extremely high coefficient of friction designed to provide maximum stopping power with excellent high temperature heat dissipation.
Features and Benefits
– Stable friction output
– Extremely fade resistant
– Extended pad life
– Increased rotor life
– Much improved braking over OE pads
Brake pads are wear items and as such, should be inspected regularly and replaced as necessary. Pads should be replaced when approximately 1/8th inch of friction material remains on the steel backing plate.
Note: Even though Hawk Performance burnishes its brake pads as a final step in the factory, all brake pads have to be bedded-in with the rotors (new or used) that they will be used against. Properly bedding-in new brake pads results in a transfer film being generated at the pad and rotor interface to maximize brake performance.
