Meritor lined brake shoes with PlatinumShield™ III coating


Meritor Approved MA212 lining provides outstanding friction stability without sacrificing lining or drum wear. MA212 is the standard friction on Meritor trailer axles and is the lining of choice for many vehicle manufacturers. It is recommended for truck, tractor, trailer and school bus applications.

Meritor lined brake shoes with PlatinumShield™ III coating



At Meritor, we continue to invest in our PlatinumShield technology to improve performance and durability. Meritor engineers are continually conducting research and testing to discover ways to improve our PlatinumShield coating process. The result is PlatinumShield III, our third-generation coating with advanced engineering that maximizes resistance to rust-jacking.

In developing PlatinumShield III coating, our aftermarket engineering team discovered a refinement in the process that provides superior adhesion of the coating to the surface of the shoe. Superior adhesion enables the coating to protect the brake shoe for a significantly longer time on the road, increasing the shoe’s durability to withstand the corrosion caused by highway de-icing chemicals. The result is a quantum leap in technological performance that creates a new standard of brake-shoe durability. PlatinumShield III coating provides unsurpassed resistance to rust-jacking and corrosion while extending the life of your brakes.
