Federal-Mogul Receives Patent for Wagner EDGE Laser-Shaped Friction Now Featured in Wagner ThermoQuiet Brake Pads

Integration of two highly advanced technologies helps ensure quieter performance, superior stopping power and longer pad life for today's applications.

Award-winning Wagner ThermoQuiet one-piece brake pads from Federal-Mogul Corporation now incorporate two highly advanced, patented technologies: Federal-Mogul’s Integrally Molded Insulator (IMI) and, most recently, the sophisticated new Wagner EDGE Laser-Shaped Friction design.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in November issued a patent covering Wagner EDGE technology, which custom shapes friction material on select applications. This leading-edge engineering approach involves laser-scan analysis of the caliper-pad-rotor interface on select applications, resulting in more focused and efficient caliper force. By integrating both of Federal-Mogul’s Wagner EDGE and IMI one-piece designs into a single brake pad, engineers have virtually eliminated braking vibration and noise while providing superior stopping power and longer pad life.

An extensive range of Wagner ThermoQuiet pads – covering many of today’s most popular foreign-nameplate and domestic applications – now feature both technologies. These pads are available in application-specific semi-metallic, non-asbestos organic and ceramic designs. To look up a ThermoQuiet pad for virtually any automotive application, simply visit www.tqbrakepads.com or www.FMe-cat.com.

“The IMI design revolutionized the brake repair category and helped make ThermoQuiet pads the number one choice of repair professionals. Now, with the integration of Wagner EDGE technology, ThermoQuiet pads are the most sophisticated replacement pads in the aftermarket, providing superior braking performance and increased customer satisfaction,” said Ken Selinger, director of friction products, North America, Federal-Mogul.

Winner of the Automotive News PACE Award for product innovation, Federal-Mogul’s IMI design eliminated the need for a conventional shim and introduced an entirely new level of noise damping and heat dissipation. Federal-Mogul engineers complement this exclusive design and the newly patented Wagner EDGE brake technology with world-class, application-specific friction formulations adapted from the company’s extensive original equipment friction portfolio.
