Brake pad

Brake pad

Uncompromising operational safety

The brake pad is a mechanically and thermally moderate to highly stressed component. Such pads are used wherever vehicles (train, tram, bus, cable car, truck, etc) or moving machine systems have to be decelarated or completely stopped. The kinetic energy is thereby converted into thermal energy (heat) by the friction between the brake pad and the drum (drum brake) or brake disc.
