Severe-Service Organic Premium AF/587/GG (United States/Canada)
AF/587/GG is an innovation the industry has sought for many decades. It’s a
true organic that provides the brake power of a metallic lining with the long
life and drum compatibility previously associated only with the mid-friction
organic premiums. Plus, it’s tough enough to handle high axle loads, excessive
heat buildup and mountainous terrain – without fade.
Severe-Service Metallic AF/560/FF (United States/Canada)
In some applications – such as logging and garbage collection – raw brake
power is the only way to get the job done. For these types of applications,
accept no substitutes! This lining will handle just about anything, including
drum temperatures over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit.

When low cost per mile, minimal downtime and a high degree of safety are all
“musts” for your bus or transit operation, get onboard with the AF/557/FF. This
noise-free premium mix is ideal for transit applications, and so is its superior
resistance to fade, long life and exceptional drum compatibility. In fact, its
performance and wear data have been extensively evaluated and acclaimed over
millions of miles in use by fleets.
Premium Grade AF/550-1/FF (United States/Canada)
It delivers a level of durability and friction stability normally found only
in higher-cost liners. AF/550-1/FF is recognized as a dependable, long-lasting
and versatile performer available at a very attractive price.
Standard Grade AF/540-1/FF (United States/Canada)
In its price category, there is no other brake lining that can compete with
either the drum compatibility or wear life of the AF/540-1/FF standard version.
It is the only standard brake block available that meets the inertial
dynamometer requirement of the FMVSS-121 brake standard at 20,000 pound GAWR
when using an AL factor of 180 or larger.
Severe-Service Metallic Combination AF/560/FF & AF/555-1/FF (United
The Combo is the perfect match for severe applications with consistently high
drum temperatures that demand both brake power and resistance to fade, such as
refuse vehicles, logging trucks and off-road applications over rough terrain.
The key is the Combo’s smart use of two different, but compatible, materials to
provide a total performance package.
