Press release date: February 15, 2017

Product line leads industry in quality of construction, ease of installation

Long Grove, Ill. – MAT Holdings, Inc. announces the launch of the Bendix® Brakes brand Premium product line, which offers comprehensive coverage for late model vehicles. The Bendix Premium line includes automotive brake pads, discs, shoes and complete brake shoe kits, and leads the industry in quality and ease of installation.

Bendix Premium line of friction products features copper-free formulations, putting it at the leading edge of environmentally-conscious brake design. By 2025, all brake manufacturers selling in the United States must eliminate copper from their friction formulations in order to meet regulations in California and Washington, enacted due to concerns over the effect of copper from brake friction materials on the environment.

Bendix Premium brake pads feature four-layer noise eliminating shims, and have been independently tested and proven to outperform competition. They are available in ceramic and semi-metallic formulations, and include hardware when applicable.

Unlike competing products, Bendix Premium rotors are platform-specific, ensuring the best possible operation for each vehicle platform. Additionally, the rotors are sold in pairs within responsible weight limits which streamlines installation. They are manufactured in Europe to the highest standards of quality, featuring precise, OEM-driven machining specs, OE-specified design and vane configuration, and a premium coating to protect from corrosion.

Bendix Premium complete brake shoe kits are also an innovative addition to the market. These preassembled sets of brake shoes, with all hardware included, save mounting time and greatly simplify stocking and installation. The brake shoes are constructed with OE Grade steel and advanced adhesives for maximum strength and durability.

With this Premium product line, Bendix is leading the industry in creating an innovative solution for the installer and safer, more reliable brakes for the driver.
