Warepad can help extend suspension life
GSM Innovative Products Inc's Ever-Durable Warepad (EWP), a suspension accessory produced from tough polymer, ultra high molecular weight (UHMW) polyolefin, has completed its 30-month field testing.
Foster Blue Water Oil/FLT, a petroleum hauling company that participated in the test, reported 33% wear remaining on the Warepad. The OEM hanger and equalizer showed no visible wear after the Warepad was run for 30 months.
Per Dennis LaFore, Foster Blue's transportation director, and Jeff Cox, the firm's maintenance manager, said they are satisfied that the Warepad did its job. They were also amazed that the amount of leaf spring replacement in the same period was cut by 95%.
The Warepad can extend the life of hangers and equalizers in a truck trailer spring suspension, reduces noise, and can be installed in minutes without welding, torching, or grinding.
