Three reasons why brake pad selection is important in EVs
You want to make sure that your brake pad selection stays quiet, goes green and lives a long EV life.
NRS Brakes highlights proper brake pad selection as EV sales rise
Crafted from galvanized steel for superior protection and durability, NRS Galvanized Brake Pads guarantee consistent and quality performance.
How brake pad selection impacts your sustainability efforts
Consumers and commercial interests alike are turning toward greater sustainability, especially in transportation, which impacts climate change. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 27% of Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the U.S. come from transportation making it the country’s largest contributor of GHG emissions. Between 1990 and 2020, GHG emissions in the transportation sector
The best way to combat brake corrosion
Finally, the sun is shining and there’s no better feeling than revving up the engine, rolling down the windows and hitting the open road. But after months of plowing through highly corrosive deicing chemicals that are laid down on roadways across the country, there could be a vehicle service concern when it comes to the
Three scary threats to your vehicle’s brake pads
This is the time of year when the shadows stretch a little longer, the wind blows colder and an unsettling feeling puts your nerves on end when you apply the brake pedal. The squeal or skittish stop are portents of service issues that could mean increased operational costs, for there are dangers lurking in the
NRS highlights brake pad features
NRS Brakes highlights three replacement brake pad features to look for when servicing vehicle braking systems, ensuring safe operation and long component life. Corrosion Resistance NRS Galvanized Brake Pads use zinc-plating technology instead of the painted parts utilized by some traditional pads. Paint can chip and flake, inviting rust-causing corrosion to degrade the brake pad.
Stock up on brake system seasonal maintenance tips
None of us want to think about it, but winter is coming, and the chemical slurries that coat the road cling to your vehicle’s undercarriage and gnaw away at any intrusions. This causes rust and premature failure of components like brake pads. “But I just replaced those pads!” you yell, cursing Jack Frost. The question
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
Two ways that EVs will change vehicle maintenance, and one major way it won’t
There’s no doubt that the increased market penetration of new EV sales will impact the service process once EVs begin to age. While there’s much to be said about the potential of reduced cost of ownership related to EVs, they will still need serviced regularly. To make sure your shop is prepared, here are two
NRS discusses service changes demanded by electric vehicles
NRS Brakes recently discussed how increased EV usage could impact vehicle servicing. Most notably, technician training and proper equipment were two of the biggest considerations. “Technicians will need training on the proper methods for disconnecting and working around high-voltage systems, in addition to the use of proper personal protection equipment. Additionally, shop owners will need
NRS Brakes highlights environment-friendly brake pads
NRS Brakes says NRS galvanized brake pads are more environmentally friendly than the competition due to less brake dust generated. Not only that corrosion resistant, contributing to a longer life on the vehicle and fewer brake pads in landfills. NRS says brake dust accounts for 20% of all vehicle-generated pollutants. Brakes require friction to operate,
EV Regenerative Braking Doesn’t Mean You Forget About The Brake Pads
EVs are coming. As manufacturers ramp up production of EVs across nearly all car and light-truck makes and models, selecting a high-quality brake pad is extremely important. The reason is twofold. Not only are EVs quieter than internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, making brake noise even more unwelcome, but EV braking system effectiveness can also
