The new 2006 Monroe Brakes Master Catalog, filled with dozens of new late-model applications and in-depth product information, is now available from Monroe Brakes.

Monroe Brakes are manufactured and marketed by Tenneco Inc., a global manufacturer of ride control, friction, exhaust/emission, and noise, vibration and harshness control products for the original equipment and replacement markets.

Adding more than 40 new part numbers to an already impressive coverage listing, the new Monroe Brakes Master Catalog highlights the brand’s advanced Ceramics and Dynamics brake pads. The new coverage includes the latest applications for Cadillac (2006 DTS), Chevrolet (2006 Impala and Monte Carlo, 2005 Uplander), Honda (2006 Ridgeline), Nissan (2005 Frontier, Pathfinder), Buick (2006 Lucerne, 2005 Terraza), Porsche (2004-05 Cayenne), Volkswagen (2004-05 Touareg), Pontiac (2005 Montana SV6), Saturn (2005 Relay), Acura (2005 RL), Ford (2005 F250/350 and Escape, 2004-05 F150), and Chrysler (2005 300).

“When Monroe Brake pads were originally launched, we offered our service partners more than 800 new part numbers to make one of the most complete late-model friction offerings on the market today and we’re continuously adding to it,” said Tony Carter, brakes product manager, North American aftermarket, Tenneco. “Our momentum is fueled by the overwhelming response we’ve had in our first year and is captured in the new master catalog.”

Monroe Premium Brake pads, a total friction solution for today’s service providers, are engineered to produce less noise and dust and provide better stopping performance than many competing products. Plus, Monroe pads are shipped complete with all required hardware and related components and materials enabling service providers to speed the repair process.

Produced through an advanced ceramic molding process, Monroe Ceramics brake pads feature premium all-ceramic friction formulations to help ensure cooler, cleaner and quieter stopping than many competing products. These premium pads incorporate a number of proven noise reduction technologies, including pre-attached rubberized shims, application-matched slots and chamfers, “Sensory Locking Plates,” and noise elimination clips.

Monroe Dynamics semi-metallic brake pads include the brand’s Positive Molding Technology that ensures a superior bond between the friction material and backing plate while reducing resin content by 50 percent versus standard flash molding.

Both premium pad designs include Monroe Sensory Locking Plates that hold the friction material more securely than conventional stamped-steel backing plates, which helps reduce noise, vibration and harshness and avoid potential pad separation issues.

Monroe brake pads are covered by the brand’s exclusive 90-day risk-free “Safe & Sound Guarantee,” which enables consumers to return products within 90 days for a full refund of the purchase price plus labor up to specified limits. (For guarantee details, visit www.monroebrakes.com.)
