The brake pads are usually made of different organic, metallic, ceramic compounds. The material is designed to provide friction between the brake pad and the brake pad when the pedal is depressed. They are an important part of the vehicle's braking system and help reduce stopping distance by creating friction between the disc and the pad. Brake pads also help prevent brake wear, which can be caused by overheating or excessive heat from braking, as well as rotor corrosion.

A brake pad is usually made of different organic and metallic compounds

When the brake pedal is depressed, the pad presses against the brake disc and generates friction. Brake pads are necessary in vehicles because they help reduce braking distance by creating friction between the disc and the pad. Brake pads also help prevent brake wear, which can be caused by overloading.

Brake pad composition

Brakes have suffered throughout their history infinite transformations in terms of the compound used in its manufacture. These differences are caused by materials that did not meet the minimum hygiene, contamination and even safety requirements. Asbestos or asbestos was a compound that was among the materials used long ago. After conducting some research, it was finally shown that it was harmful to health and that, in addition, it had carcinogenic properties. Currently, manufacturers' technology aims to make brake pads more respectful of the environment (and ourselves) thanks to anti-pollution regulations.

SDT BRAKES has gone one step further by developing this avant-garde and sustainable product, eliminating substances that are harmful to the environment. No copper, nickel or any other polluting material is used, and we have even gone further reaching the “Leaf Mark” level N.

Brake maintenance

The brake pads They are the most important parts of your car's braking system. It's important to maintain your brake pads so they don't wear out too quickly so you can stop your car safely when needed. The best way to do this is to check them regularly for signs of wear and replace them if necessary.

Do they need to be replaced?

It's important to replace your brake pads regularly so they don't wear out and cause a car accident. Replacing your brake pads from time to time can help you avoid accidents.

Inspect for problems in advance

Inspecting your brakes is a routine procedure to be performed every year and every month.

It is important to check your brakes in case to avoid a problem with them. It is not only an external feature, but also protects the driver and passengers from any possible accident. Car brakes are very important in maintaining a safe driving experience. Car braking systems are made up of four basic components: brake pads, brake discs, the hydraulic system ( brake lines) and the master cylinder. Brake pads and discs come in a variety of designs and materials, depending on the design as it depends on the manufacturer and model//engine of the vehicle. The hydraulic system usually uses hydraulic fluid or hydraulic oil running through all the brake lines. Ultimately, the master cylinder is responsible for the operation and deployment of the brakes.

Checking the friction material every few months

It is important to check periodically check the friction material of your brakes and their system to ensure that they are in good condition. Friction material are different mixtures of pressed materials that rub against metal surfaces and generate heat when compressed. Helps you bring the car to a stop quickly by converting kinetic energy into heat.

The ECE R90 High performance S50 range of car pads for street use and High Performance Plus S50+

Brakes are necessary for all types of vehicles, not just cars.

They allow vehicles to slow down and stop in time. Brake pads are the part of a brake system that helps stop a vehicle in time. City car brakes are often made of ceramic brake pads because they offer better stopping power and durability than metal brake pads.

High Performance S50 Brake Pads

< p>Thanks to the organic compound in our brake pads High Performance S50, we obtain a high coefficient of friction and a great bite. Thus producing a reduction in risk situations in the face of any unforeseen event and giving us a braking bonus.

● Sports brakes with powerful and progressive braking, without fade.

● Minimal loss of efficiency in the wet.

● Non-aggressive brake pads on the brake disc.

● They increase the safety of the vehicle.

The brake pads are equipped with all the necessary accessories, radial chamfers and anti-noise plates to improve the comfort of daily use.

High Performance Plus S50+ front brake pads

This organic compound has carbon fiber integration in our disc pads, we obtain a more thermally stable and comfortable compound, even at high temperatures. This mechanism causes a reduction in risk situations in the face of any unforeseen event and gives us a braking bonus. Some of the features and benefits of the compound High Performance Plus S-50+ are the following:

● Sports brakes with powerful and progressive braking, without fade.

● Minimal loss of efficiency in the wet.

● Non-aggressive brake pads on the brake disc brake.

● Increase vehicle safety.

SDT BRAKES High Performance S50 and High Performance Plus S50+ brake pads comply with ECE R 90 regulations, they are equipped with all the necessary accessories, radial chamfers and anti-noise plates to improve comfort in daily use. We have even gone further reaching the N level of the “Leaf Mark”. We work to the maximum the environmental impact. You can find both pads at SDT Brakes.
