COBRA® AP Brake Shoe

COBRA® composition brake shoes are a blend of lead- and asbestos-free, friction-producing materials that are molded to a pressed-steel backer plate under controlled heat and pressure to provide consistent, reliable braking under varying conditions. The COBRA® AP (advanced performance) shoe, for standard freight car applications, features a tapered design to help alleviate problems caused by misaligned brake rigging. The shoes are available in both 1-1/2-inch and 2-inch thicknesses.



Wabtec sells and distributes COBRA® brake shoes.
