LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Meritor has announced it’s making its PlatinumShield II coating available on lined aftermarket brakes.

The special coating, which prevents rustjacking, will be available on all new, lined brake shoes, except those with EG and EG2 friction materials, the company announced.

“Our customers in the aftermarket kept insisting that we make this innovative breakthrough product available on new shoes, not just remanufactured shoes,” said Tim Bauer, director, undercarriage products, Meritor Aftermarket. Meritor says it will not provide unlined brakes shoes to the market with PlatinumShield II. Unlined brake shoes will continue to be available with black e-coat paint only.
