Brake Pads - Find your car parts
Information - Brake Pads
Brake pad is a very important part of the shoe. Its main task is to obtain the necessary force of friction when braking, as well as ensure the stability of the coefficient of friction when changing the brake disc speed and pressure in the system. That's why carmakers, along with developers and manufacturers of brake pads are trying to get the coefficient of friction, which would be close to constant under all operating conditions. But it is not so easy to achieve such a coefficient. Today it is impossible to achieve it. The only thing is to find the optimum combination of parts properties.
Current coefficient of friction of the most pads is 0.35-0.45. The first figure is easy to explain: under-friction properties lead to an increased deceleration time and braking distance. This is definitely a negative impact on the safety of driving. On the other hand, an increased coefficient of friction reduces the range of activities on the brake pedal from the beginning to the locked-wheel braking, which also affects the braking process.
Not only the stability of the car becomes worse, but the steer ability, as the grip of the wheels and the road will be the same both in the exchange rate and lateral direction. Also, it increases the stopping distance because of the reduction of grip when brake slip.
However, it is worth noting the role of the driver in this issue. When there is a high coefficient of friction he must be careful to press the pedal and have a fairly good driving skills and quick reaction. In this regard, the most dangerous road is where there is alternation of regions with good and poor adhesion. If there is any failure of brake pads, it is necessary to turn to service centre. Even if the problem is not in this part, it is dangerous to drive a car with a brake problem for the owner of the car and for others. As for buying new parts, including brake discs, nozzle or dust set, you can save only in one case: when buying the necessary part in the online store.
