It is a synthetic brake shoe developed by Westinghouse Huaxia and suitable for Chinese subway vehicles.
Currently used in Beijing, Tianjin, Shenyang subways.
It has the significant advantages of stable friction coefficient and long life (about 60%-100% longer life in comparison test than competitors).
It is a high friction brake shoe for subway developed by Westinghouse Group. It is currently mainly used in Shanghai, Nanjing and Harbin subways. Its friction coefficient is stable, and it has low noise during braking, low wear on wheels, and long service life (more than twice that of competitors).
W724（TG，Treadguard brake shoe）
TG brake shoe is a unique patented design of Westinghouse Friction Group, in which the middle cast iron block has the function of tread repair. The cost of spinning wheels can be significantly reduced and the life of the wheels can be extended.
