USPS Truck Brakes- Case Study

The Problem

The United States Postal Service experiences a lot of wear and tear on its trucks, as heavy usage in all weathers affects the mechanical components of their vehicles. In an attempt to mitigate the costs of repair and replacement, they sponsored extensive testing to determine what the best brakes were for its fleet.

The Experiment

The postal service trucks tried several brakes from various manufacturers and determined our cryogenically treated brakes to be the best of all rotors tested. Our treated brakes were so durable, that the second place brakes showed 7x more wear than ours did.

To help with the treated and untreated brakes testing for the US Postal Service, we utilized an independent firm which specializes in brake testing, Greening Testing Laboratories according to SAE 2707 JUL 2004 METHOD B.

They found that brake rotors and pads lasted significantly longer after deep cryogenic treatment, with no significant change in braking effectiveness. In some cases, treated brakes have lasted four times longer than untreated ones.

Proven Results with CTP

The US Postal Service, has shown considerably reduced operating costs by using cryogenically treated brakes by CTP through its partner Precision Fleet Brakes.
