About Disc Brake Pads

Disc brake pads stop automobiles in motion by clamping the discs that spin in conjunction with the vehicle's wheels and applying friction to halt the wheels' rotation. Characteristics of brake pads, such as the effectiveness of braking, resistance to wear, and ability to reduce the sound and vibration that occurs when a vehicle stops, can significantly affect how the safety and comfort of automobiles are evaluated.
