SilverbackHD Ceramic New Lined Shoes Improving Stop Distance While Lowering Wheel End Temps and Cost Per Mile

SilverbackHD GeoMetric Series Ceramic new lined shoes are demanded by fleets who need to lower wheel end temperatures as well as their cost per mile.

Using our proprietary positive-molded ceramic fiber formulation, SilverbackHD 20K, 23K and 23HTP frictions have demonstrated excellent torque and lower line pressure under the most severe conditions—and that means better stopping power— up to 20% better than most semi-metallic frictions.

And because SilverbackHD retains less heat it also burns less friction, which means a substantially lower cost per mile for the cost-conscious fleet. Intentional Engineering® is core to our brake philosophy at SilverbackHD, and as a result, we have built all of our SilverbackHD ceramic products on OE-grade New Lined shoes.

SilverbackHD GeoMetric Series New Lined shoes were the first brake shoes in the marketplace built with Intentional Engineering® to ensure multi-component harmony between the friction, shoe table, drum and brake hardware.

To facilitate this Intentional Engineering®, SilverbackHD uses bi-directional torsionally reinforced welding on all of its shoe tables to maximize roundness and concentricity for a full friction contact.

Intentionally Engineered heat-treating specifications harmonize with GeoMetric Series OE-grade S-cam and brake hardware heat-treating to reduce system maintenance and improve on-the-road braking performance.







SilverbackHD GeoMetric Series Ceramic new lined shoes are engineered and manufactured to meet the harshest road conditions. Because at SilverbackHD Products, HD means “Heavier Duty.
