Brake Pad Set Guides

If car parts are alive, the brake pads live the worst lives. In fact, they are the most expendable car part there is. They are always in constant pressure and are always in the heat of the action. They are the most frequently changed car part. But the most important thing is, their passenger's lives are in their hands. Brake pads are designed to endure high friction. They are made to make contact and consequently generate heat. They are the most hardy of the hardy.
It is commonly thought that brake pads directly make contact with the brake discs surface but in fact it touches another pad material on the sides of the brake disc. The contact between two surfaces produces a semi-liquid friction boundary that results in actual braking. Excessive braking and improper braking technique can easily wear out the pads and even the brake discs. The brake pads' make can ensure its longevity but this also have trade-offs. The more hardy the brake pad, the lesser its braking power and vice versa. In effect, it is better t invest in a well-rounded brake pad.
When looking for quality brake pads, it is better to choose a brake pad that can fully serve you needs. If you are are speed freak, it is better to gear up your car with more brake pads for optimum performance and to ensure your safety. But if you are just an average Joe kind of driver, it better to opt for the average but quality brakes to suit your need. When choosing a brake pad, choose a hardy and trusted name. Because a brake pad's job is hardwork.

What is a brake pad set?

A brake pad set is typically made up of four individual brake pads. Each wheel requires a pair of brake pads to be installed (one pair each for the driver and passenger side). This means that you’ll need to get one set for the front wheels and a different set for the rear wheels.

These brake pads are a critical component of the brake assembly. They are designed to convert kinetic energy to heat, making it possible for your vehicle to slow down and come to a full stop. Brake pads are attached to the inner side of the caliper and the outer side of the piston that comes in contact with both sides of the rotor.

How do brake pads work

Brake pads stop the movement of your car’s wheels by applying friction on the moving rotor. During this process, the energy coming from the rotors is converted into thermal energy, which is then absorbed and dissipated by the brake pads. These are made from materials that can withstand regular use, maximizes grip, and has high thermal conductivity.

Types of brake pads

There are four main types of brake pads categorized by the material. These are organic, ceramic, metallic, and semi-metallic brake pads.

Organic brake pads

Early brake pads were originally made from asbestos which was later proven to be a health and environmental hazard. These were replaced by non-asbestos brake pads which are commonly known as organic brake pads.

The material used for this type of brake pad is a combination of rubber, glass, resin, and cellulose. This makes the dust produced during the process of braking less harmful to humans and the environment. They are commonly used in small and light vehicles because they are softer and can easily wear out if regularly used for hard stops.

Ceramic brake pads

This type of brake pad is known for being lightweight and providing excellent brake performance. These brake pads are made from a mix of ceramic fibers, filler materials, and copper fibers. They dissipate thermal energy effectively, produce less dust, and do not wear down as quickly as other types. The one thing that keeps people away from choosing ceramic is its steep price tag.

Metallic brake pads

Standard metal brake pads are great for vehicles that require a great amount of stopping power. These pads are made from a combination of bonded copper, steel, iron, and graphite. The only disadvantage of using this type of brake pad is that they can add extra weight on your vehicle which shouldn’t be a problem unless your vehicle is meant for high-performance driving.

Semi-metallic brake pads

This type of brake pad is commonly seen in modern vehicles. These brake pads are made from a combination of metal and synthetic materials that are bonded using an organic resin. This type is highly resistant to thermal damage and wear but produces less friction than its organic counterpart.

How often should brake pads be replaced?

Manufacturers typically provide guidelines regarding brake pad replacement. In general, your car’s brake pads should be replaced after 30,000 miles. However, factors such as environment, driving style, the type of vehicle transmission you have, and damage to other brake components can accelerate wear on your brake pads.

How much does a set of brake pads cost?

The cost of a brake pad set will vary depending on your vehicle’s specific year, make, and model. OE replacement brake pads will generally cost you anywhere between $2 and $630. These sets typically come with 2 pairs of brake pads (one pair for each side of the vehicle). These sets are categorized by where they should be installed—front and rear.

How to check brake pads

There are several ways to determine whether its time to get a new brake pad set for your vehicle. Here are some of the steps you can do to check if you have a faulty or damaged brake pad.

  • Check if the brake indicator light on your dashboard is on (if applicable)

Some vehicle models carry brake pad sensors that trigger a warning light on the dashboard once the brake pad has worn down enough for it to require replacement.

  • Listen for any squeaking or high-pitched noises while braking

Don’t panic if you hear this noise—a metal indicator on your brake pads is designed to make this sound once the material is worn down near the end of its service life. This noise automatically goes away by simply replacing the brake pads.

  • Inspect the thickness of your brake pads

Peek through the tire spokes and observe whether the brake pads are less than a quarter of an inch thick. If yes, you should consult a mechanic immediately to have it replaced.

Inside The Braking System

Braking power can never be as good with a powerful brake in your performance vehicle.
You love driving power, no doubt about it. But while the concept of acceleration and horsepower may be thrilling to you, and while you may be more inclined towards performance upgrades and enhancements, you must not forget other important systems in your auto, especially those that determine your driving safety. Have you checked on your brake recently? Have you inspected the brake pads to see if their friction materials are still intact?
No drive is ever safe without the brakes, the system that combats your vehicle’s acceleration to bring you to a safe halt. This system is categorized into two general types: the disc brake and the drum brake. Each disc brake is made up of a pair of pads that sandwiches the rotors when you press on the brake pedal, stopping the spinning of the rotors and the wheels into which the rotors are attached. The drum brake operates in the same manner, only it has a brake drum instead of a rotor and a pair of brake shoes instead of pads. Of all braking parts, the brake pads and shoes require the most frequent inspection and replacement because their friction surface wears over time.
Whether your auto has a front disc brake and a rear drum brake, or disc brakes at both front and rear, it is a must that you maintain the various braking parts well. If you find the pads or other parts wearing, you must replace them at once to avoid brake-related accidents.

Important Facts You Need to Know About Brake Pad Set

Avoid accidents. Ensure that your car has a good brake pad set installed in it.
The chain of command isn't only a human thing. It also applies to organized working parts like your automotive systems. One good example is the braking assembly. Its operation starts with the brake pedal, where you give out the command, so to speak, by pressing on it with your foot. The pressure created is multiplied up to four times by the brake booster. The master cylinder then transmits the brake fluid to activate the pistons in the calipers, pushing the calipers inwards. The brake pad set, stuffed on the inner side of the calipers, clamps into the brake disc, generating friction that stops or slows down the spinning of the wheels.
The function of the brake pads is basic to stopping your vehicle. Each set includes different numbers of steel-backed plates with friction materials on their surface. Since the pads rub with the rotating steel brake disc, their friction materials are bound to thin over time. So it's important to always check on your auto's brake pad set-both front and rear-to ensure that they haven't reached their minimum thinness limit. But when they already did, replace them immediately to prevent unwanted rotor wear (and untoward incidents, too).
Running with your pads' friction materials thin reduces your auto's braking ability. This also risks your brake discs because each time you press on the pedal, the pads' metal backing is the one scratching the discs, not the friction surface. When further neglected, you're bound to replace both pads and discs.

The Automobile Basics: Brake Pad Set

Car owners who take their braking system for granted are headed for disaster. Without regular inspection, they won't know if the braking system parts are already worn-out or damaged. For example, worn-out brake pads can cause poor stopping power. There's even a chance that the whole braking system might fail just because of these worn-out pads. To avoid this scenario, car owners must invest on a new Brake Pad Set as soon as they can. This will restore the braking system's ability to come to a stop in order to avoid collisions. The brake pad is just one of the vital components of the braking system. It is made up of steel backing plates that is mounted with a friction material. The brake pad doesn't function on its own. A pair is mounted on the brake caliper. Through hydraulic pressure, the caliper forces the pads together until they come in contact with the whirling rotor. Once the rotor and the pads come in contact, friction is produced which ultimately stops the wheels' motion. The brake pads have to be of the right depth for them to be efficient. Once the depth is below -inch, a new Brake Pad Set is really in order. Brake pad installation is an easy task, especially for Do-It-Yourself mechanics. Only basic tools are needed to get the new Brake Pad Set in place.

Brake Pad Set: Just the Facts

Among the crucial parts of the braking system is the brake pad set. Found between the calipers and rotors, the brake pad is forced against the brake discs once you step on the brakes. The resulting friction allows the rotor, and the wheel it's attached to, to slow down and eventually stop. To hold their own against the enormous amount of heat and pressure brought by friction, brake pads these days are usually crafted from ceramic or steel. Both materials make for durable, long-lasting brake pads, but, of course, these braking components also experience their share of damage and wear and tear.
