Abutment Clips

Innovation and continuous improvement at Wolverine led to a rich portfolio of Abutment Clip materials that have the following characteristics: superior durability, low coefficient of friction (COF), corrosion resistance, and damping. These material characteristics, along with a solid Abutment Clip design, are very effective solutions in reducing brake NVH.

Wolverine Abutment Clip materials can provide an effective and sustainable pad sliding mechanism with damping that will contribute to the brake NVH solution. Our manufacturing methods allow us to achieve tighter tolerances and a wide range of thicknesses.
