Quality manufacturing is central to Uni-Bond Brake. All shoes are manufactured in compliance with ISO 9001 quality standards established by automotive and heavy duty OEMs like: Ford, General Motors, and DaimlerChrysler.

Critical dimensional controls such as shoe radius are monitored and controlled to ensure that Uni-Bond shoes will provide uniform, balanced braking performance. Computerized gages measure shoe radius precisely. Controls on the form of the shoe radius prevent "hot spots" which can shorten friction and drum life.

  • Seam-Welding webs and tables provide complete welding along entire brake shoe on our most popular styles.

  • E-Coating (electro-deposition coating) stops rust before it starts by electro-magnetically bonding paint to the steel of every NEW brake shoe. Uni-Bond Brake shoes are environmentally tested to withstand 1,000 hours of salt spray.

  • High-Grade Steel that meets tightly controlled specifications to ensure strength, weld and performance. High-grade carbon steel is used on all webs for durability. Steel grades are monitored by certified laboratories.

Why Buy New Shoes:


  New Shoes vs Relined Shoes 

  • New brake shoes, along with in-spec drums, cams, cam bushings, consistent automatic slack adjusters, and new brake hardware, provides an excellent foundation for brake balance
  • New brake shoes provide the correct tolerances for consistent tables, cams and anchor tolerances
  • Correct concentricity (matching brake shoe and drum diameter) allows the center of the brake shoe to contact the drum first, ending cam-biased conditions (initial shoe end contact), providing smooth, vibration free braking, with as much as 25% longer life for linings and drums
  • Uni-Bond E-coating brake shoes stand up to 1,000 hours of salt spray testing, that's double OEM specifications for corrosion resistance under environmental conditions

  True Core Costs When Re-Lining Shoes 

  • Cost of maintaining a "core bank", including inventory shrinkage caused by bad or missing cores
  • Core handling, and connected costs, including vehicle wear and fuel costs picking up cores
  • Environmental concerns of exposure while handling and storing material and the filth produced
  • Cost of shoe preparation before relining: washing, bead-blasting, and coating
  • Cost of relining the shoe
  • Brake shoe wear may be compounded if relining multiple times
  • #1 COST - LIABILITY TO YOUR BUSINESS: The brake shoe is one of the most liability-prone items in the heavy-duty market
The Uni-Bond Difference
Uni-Bond manufactures the finest quality OE hardware and cam repair kits sold directly to major OEMs. The same, rigorously tested hardware is used in every new lined shoe kit your buy from Uni-Bond.

Uni-Bond Hardware Kits
  Powder-coated springs for maximum corrosion resistance
  Zinc-coated, heat-treated rollers and anchor pins

Uni-Bond Brake Shoes
  Seam welded
  Thicker platform/web and base
  3000 lb. weld test strength vs our competitors average test to 1000-1500 lb.

Uni-Bond Lining
FMVSS121 certified
Aftermarket tested for 7 years
Product liability insurance

 

All these costs can add an additional 25% to the cost of a relined shoe, while a new shoe can add as much as 25% longer life to linings and drums
