Carlisle Motion Control Industries says its WT56 transit friction material is now available in several new FMSI
numbers for new vocational applications such as refuse, concrete, logging, sand & gravel, oil delivery, and
beverage transport. WT56 offers good stopping power with a rating of 25,000 lb on a 7-inch brake, Carlisle says. It
adds that the lining is also quiet, making it a good choice for noise-sensitive applications.

The WT56 friction material has been formulated to handle the high heat found in multiple-stop and heavy-load
braking common in transit and other vocational applications. Federal regulations for brake recovery, fade, and
effectiveness outlined in the CFMVSS 121 inertia dynamometer test procedure are said to be easily met by WT56.
