Roadleveler new and remanufactured brake components last longer and perform more reliably under corrosive conditions due to chemical de-icers used to counteract snow and ice, the manufacturer affirms. While chemical de-icers prevent ice from forming on roadways, they also make it easier for corrosive chemicals to penetrate truck components like brakes; thus, Roadleveler offers a special anti-corrosion hydraplex enamel coating first applied through full immersion that doesn’t leave surfaces exposed to possible environmental contaminants. The enamel coating then is baked on at 200_F for several cycles to ensure proper adhesion.
Additionally, each Roadleveler brake shoe is coined, i.e., precision stamped in a 1,000-ton hydraulic press, to eliminate uneven wear for greater stopping power and longer life. Coining ensures that the shoe table radius and depth are manufactured to OEM tolerances, as it eliminates gaps between the shoe table and friction material to prevent seeping in of water and chemical de-icers.
Roadleveler brake components are a licensed brand of precision-fit, all-make replacement parts, including brake shoes and hardware kits for medium- to heavy-duty trucks. All Roadleveler brake products meet or exceed Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 121. The brake products are distributed exclusively through Kenworth and Peterbilt dealers in the U.S. and Canada.
