NRS highlights the importance of corrosion-resistant brake pads

NUCAP Industries highlighted the need for corrosion-resistant brake pads, especially after a long winter where corrosion-causing deicing chemicals cling to a vehicle’s underside can reduce brake pad life. The NRS galvanized brake pad features premium friction material backed by zinc-plated steel designed to outlast competitive brake pads.

NUCAP says the use of galvanized steel helps prevent rust and corrosion, thus extending the brake pad’s life. Additionally, using protected steel will allow the friction to wear down completely before any possible separation occurs. The NRS attachment technology applied in production ensures that the engineered layers of the brake pad do not separate over time, resulting in improved braking performance and secure stops for the entirety of its lifespan.

Covering automotive and commercial vehicles up to Class 7, NRS galvanized brake pads are individually tailored to customer and application needs. This new brake-pad program will have OEM fitment on trucks including International, Kenworth and Peterbilt. 57 new SKUs have been added to the North American-made galvanized brake pad lineup. An additional 1,600 vehicle applications are now covered, including BMW, Honda, Ford, GMC Trucks, Nissan and more, according to NUCAP.
