Brakes riding out of the side of the drum is caused by heat generated by heavy braking resulting in the brake drums becoming bell shaped. As a result there is outward pressure on the brake shoes as they are applied. Some operators attempt to bend the shoes back in, but this is not recommended as it can result in metal fatigue and damage to the brake. Brakes riding out the side of the drum can happen on a new axle on its first set of brakes.
The materials have been chosen based on research and testing to Australian standards. For example coating with a bio-corrosion inhibitors was chosen over common coatings that cause Hydrogen Embrittlement, thus shortening the life of the product
Tru-Shu itself has been tested over a range of Prime movers and trailers. This has been done for over 3 years in its various stages of development. It has not on any occasions failed to perform and the problem of shoes riding out of the side of the drums has been eliminated entirely.
