UniBond brake shoes are long-lasting, decrease vehicle down-time and lower maintenance costs. Our new brake shoes, when installed with in-spec drums, cams, cam bushings, consistent automatic slack adjusters, and new brake hardware, provide excellent foundation brake balance. Utilizing our shoes will bring the truck to a smooth, steady, safe stop every time.
You’re investing in the most critical safety system on your vehicles…why trust a re-line of unknown quality?
Precise concentricity (matching brake shoe and drum diameter) allows the center of the brake shoe to contact the drum first. This ends cam-biased conditions (initial shoe end contact), provides smooth, vibration-free braking, and improves lining and drum life by as much as 25%.
UniBond’s e-coated brake shoes withstand up to 1,000 hours of salt spray testing. This yields more than three times the corrosion resistance of a typical re-lined brake shoe while remaining much more economical than exotic rust prevention coatings. E-coat has been proven to virtually eliminate rust-jacking, saving repair costs and avoiding “out of service” citations. Interested in more details about how the UniBond finish works for you?

UniBond Brake Shoes:
- Use continuous fillet / seam welded structure – provides structural strength while minimizing distortions due to excess weld heat; avoiding inferior “slot welds” which lack structural strength
- High-grade steel provides a strong structure to meet Federal Motor Vehicle standards and minimize shoe distortion over time (“shoe stretch”)
- By meeting strict dimensional standards, shoes put the brake lining in the optimum “sweet spot” for long lining life
