Brake Pad Set

The Brake Pad Set is an important component of the disc brake system. The function of the brake pad is to slow down or stop the wheels from turning when the brake pedal is pressed. It converts the automobile's kinetic energy into thermal energy by friction. The brake pad also provides necessary resistance between the brake system and the brake/disc rotor. When the brake pedal is pressed, the hydraulic fluid passes through the master cylinder and reaches the brake caliper. This pressurized liquid makes the brake pads press against the rotor to slow down or stop the wheels.

Based on the material with which they are constructed, brake pads are categorized into four types: asbestos, organic, ceramic and metallic. Older vehicles used asbestos brake pads while most of the newer vehicles have metallic brake pads. Ceramic brake pads are used extensively in high-performance automobiles.

If you hear a squealing sound when you press the pedal, or sense a hard or spongy pedal while braking, it may be an indication of a bad brake pad. A worn out brake pad is also identified by an indicator light in the car's dashboard. You should replace a faulty brake pad to prevent possible damage to your vehicle's brake mechanism.
