International brake drums line is launched

Navistar introduces International brake drums, offering a private label branded line of brake drums manufactured to the standards of Navistar OE specifications. These are the same drums that will be used at a factory production level on many Navistar truck models later in 2011.

Manufactured to SAE and ASTM standards, the International brake drums are subjected to quality audits for both the product and manufacturing process.

Many models of the new International brake drums feature machined-to-balance engineering, and lean manufacturing techniques, resulting in 2- to 4-lb weight savings per drum, and improved heat dissipation compared with traditional designs. This delivers an improved cost per mile, and a longer life expectancy through an improved heat transfer process and anti-corrosion protection.

International brake drums are available through International/IC truck and bus dealerships and offer a one year/unlimited mileage warranty.
