NRS brake pad features to face winter weather challenges

Proper braking system operation is always important, especially when snow and ice can present poor driving conditions. Brake pad corrosion is both a safety issue and a cost liability. Ahead of winter weather, NRS noted several key replacement brake pad features that are important to ensure optimal braking performance.

Corrosion resistance

The use of galvanized steel in NRS galvanized steel brake pads helps prevent rust and corrosion from occurring, thus extending the brake pad’s life. Additionally, the use of protected steel will allow the friction to wear down completely before any chance of separation occurs.

Mechanical attachment

The NRS-patented mechanical brake pad attachment ensures that the engineered layers of the brake pad do not separate over time. The innovative NRS-patented mechanical brake pad attachment ensures that the engineered layers of the brake pad do not separate over time or crumble from corrosion.

Environmentally sensitive

NRS galvanized brake pads employ semi-metallic and copper-free materials that dissipate heat and cool efficiently, resulting in less brake dust.

Quiet braking

NRS piston cushion insert is designed to help reduce the noise level by up to 90%, says the manufacturer. The NRS Piston Cushion Insert acts as a barrier to minimize heat transfer to brake fluids, thus reducing brake noise.
