PowerTorque is a heavy duty/high performance friction material developed by Raybestos. As an upgrade to standard and Kevlar® friction materials, PowerTorque eliminates premature wear on heavy duty diesel and work trucks, fleet vehicles, high performance passenger cars and racing applications. Introduced for high stress applications, this material has 25% higher friction levels for greater holding capacity and positive lock-up characteristics. It also has a higher temperature capacity, as well as a higher density than conventional tan for increased durability. In fact, PowerTorque is so durable, that it may outlast the life of the torque converter.
