(HT) Hybrid Technology Friction Clutch Plates



Hybrid Technology (HT) friction clutch plates utilize a Raybestos® Powertrain proprietary OE friction material and a unique groove pattern to reduce stresses during shifts to keep the components cooler, improve performance and extend the life of every rebuild. HT frictions seamlessly combine the fluid flow dynamics of a segmented friction lining with the strength and durability of a full friction ring to exceed OE expectations.


  • Better-than-OE resistance to extreme heat caused by high-energy loading
  • Smooth shifts and stable performance with no sliding, bumping or chattering
  • Higher torque capacity than conventional high energy materials
  • Low material compression, a critical factor in maintaining piston travel
  • Tight production tolerances for fast, hassle-free installation
  • Excellent distribution of pressure evenly through the clutch
  • Longer clutch and transmission life after rebuild
