Materials and Design

Mechanical Retention System

Mechanical Retention System

Our Mechanical Retention System securely attaches friction material to the backing plate for greatly improved shear strength and reduces the possibility of puck end-lift.

High-quality steel hooks mechanically attach the friction to the steel plate. This reduces the potential of rust jacking for improved safety.
