Its new system was developed over two years, according to the company, “to optimise the synergistic relationship between friction components and a vehicle’s performance and service life”.
The firm also says its new braking materials have already been proven on truck, trailer, bus and coach applications “to provide premium braking performance and durability under all service operating conditions”.
Features include meshed backplates, for mechanical retention of the pad to the backplate, and high friction bedding coatings on the surface of the pad that are said to help remove debris and contamination from the braking surface of the disc left behind by the former set of pads.
Synergy braking comes in two versions – Synergy Red (premium grade), suitable for truck and trailer applications, and Synergy Yellow (premium plus grade) offering “enhanced performance and pad life” under more extreme operating conditions, particularly for bus and coach applications.
Synergy braking is available exclusively from Juratek.
