Hawk Superduty - Extreme Service and Towing
 

Hawk's SuperDuty Ferro-Carbon material is engineered for severe-duty professional truck fleets and trucks and SUVs towing heavy loads.
This material offers unmatched braking performance under high inertia and/or repetitive braking applications. To drive safely with heavy payloads it is critical to have brakes that operate properly. Heavy fleet trucks and light trucks and SUVs carrying heavy tow loads experience high braking temperatures. Higher temperatures contribute to premature brake pad and rotor wear. Hawk Performance's SuperDuty product is a sophisticated material that has an extremely high coefficient of friction designed to provide maximum truck and SUV stopping power with excellent high temperature heat dissipation.

Hawk Brake Pad Installation Procedure

  • Install Brake pads properly. Be sure pads are securely positioned in the caliper.
  • Flush system with fresh brake fluid.
  • Check all hydraulic parts for excess wear and tear.
  • Check disc for proper thickness, parallelism, and lateral run-out.
  • Check disc for scoring or grooves over .012"" depth. If either applies, resurfacing or replacement is required.
  • If disc does not need resurfacing then contamination from the previous brake pads must be removed. Sand discs with Garnet sandpaper using moderate pressure. Use soap and water to clean off disc surface after sanding and machining. Discs should be free and clear of oil, grease, and brake fluid.
  • Inspect calipers for freedom of movement. Lubricate where necessary.
