Today, whether it’s a Bendix, Brembo, Haldex, Knorr, Meritor or Wabco braking system, DON offers a full range providing a maximum vehicle part coverage – all ECE R90 approved.
High quality and safety
DON uses diverse mechanical fixing technologies in its CV brake pad range to ensure high quality and safety without compromise, whatever the driving conditions.
TMD Friction Lightweight Technology
The “TMD Friction Lightweight Technology” is based on a thinner and, thus, lighter backing plate for commercial vehicles. The slimness of the backing plate is compensated by an underlayer which has a lower specific weight than steel, while durability and load-bearing capacity of the plate remain the same. Wear on the brake/axle system is minimised due to reduced weight.
The DON lighweight plate technology pads for single-piston disc brakes are available for Wabco brake applications sizes 17”, 19” and 22”
ECE R90 approved
CV Brake Discs
