Brake Pads are a very important part of Brake System, every time we brake; it is the pad which rubs against the rotating rotor to give the braking force for stopping the vehicle. As Brake Pads wear out with every braking they are one of the fastest moving replacement parts for vehicles.
As a system supplier with expertise in the entire range of Auto Components, we are aware that Brakes are a safety product and are continuously engaged in research and development to keep itself aligned with the growing customer requirement for efficient and safe Braking.
Brake pads are a component of disc brakes used in automotive and other applications. Brake pads are steel backing plates with friction material bound to the surface that faces the disk brake rotor. Brake pads convert the kinetic energy of the car to thermal energy by friction. Two brake pads are contained in the brake caliper with their friction surfaces facing the rotor.
When the brakes are hydraulically applied, the caliper clamps or squeezes the two pads together into the spinning rotor to slow/stop the vehicle. When a brake pad is heated by contact with a rotor, it transfers small amounts of friction material to the disc, turning it dull gray. The brake pad and disc (both now with friction material), then “stick” to each other, providing the friction that stops the vehicle.
