When it comes to your braking system, there are several things to consider. There are a variety of different kinds of brake pads, multiple pieces interworking pieces and not to mention the cost of service.

The Different Types of Brake Pads

There are four main types of commonly used brake pads. If you are looking to buy parts and/or service your vehicle yourself, it is best to check your owner's manual to see which type of brakes your vehicle needs. Check out our shortlist below to get a picture of the benefits and faults of each.

  • Semi-Metallic Brake Pads: Comprised of between 30 and 65 percent metal, these brakes are commonly made out of steel wool, wire, copper and other metals. These brakes are highly durable but tend to wear down your brake rotors at a higher rate. If you live in an area with low temperatures then ask our automotive specialists if these brakes are right for you because they tend to have trouble in colder environments.
  • Non-Asbestos Organic Brake Pads: Made from organic materials, such as fiber, glass, rubber and kevlar, these brakes are commonly known as NAO. They are softer and tend to wear out faster but produce less noise.
  • Low-Metallic Non-Asbestos Organic Brake Pads: These are like the NAO brakes except with a bit of copper or steel mixed in. They help with heat transfer and provide better braking. Due to the combination of metallic and organic materials, these brakes produce a considerable amount of brake dust and noise.
  •   Ceramic Brake Pads: These brake pads tend to be more expensive than other kinds because they are made of primarily ceramic fibers and other filler materials. The upside is that they are cleaner and produce much less noise than other kinds of brake pads. They have outstanding braking ability and don't cause as much added wear to other braking components.

    Braking Components and Their Function

    We've already discussed brake pads to a length, but what are the other braking components that go into the braking system? One that we touched on is the brake discs, also known as brake calipers.

    Brake calipers are large hydraulic clamps that force the brake pad against the rotor surface to create friction and bring the vehicle to a stop. The brake rotors are attached to the wheel of your vehicle. It is essential to have quality brake rotors because they experience extreme heat from the friction from the brake pads. If your brake rotors are worn, it could cause an issue in your stopping ability.



    This is why it is essential to get your brakes serviced at an automotive repair center that you trust. If you have a technician that cuts corners with your brake servicing then the integrity of your braking system is jeopardized and so is your safety.
