Cadillac brake pads are the component in the braking system that produces friction, directly responsible for stopping the motion of the wheels by pressing upon the brake disc to slow and stop their rotation. Cadillac brake pads are lined with a friction material that is a compound made up of carbon, metal shavings and polymer adhesives, designed to provide the secure grip on the brake disc necessary to stop the momentum of the vehicle. This is quite an accomplishment, given the size of the Cadillac brake pads, often less than six inches in length. There is a pair of Cadillac brake pads used on each brake disc, squeezing together to contact the disc, with one on each side of it. The Cadillac brake pads lose a bit of their friction material each time the brakes are applied, gradually wearing it off over time, making it necessary to replace them with new Cadillac brake pads periodically to maintain efficient brake system operation. If the Cadillac brake pads are allowed to wear too thin, they can cause scoring in the brake disc that can create unnecessary expense, requiring the replacement of the disc if the damage is severe. Many Cadillac brake pads are equipped with a wear indicator that makes a squealing noise when the pads are due for replacement, helping to avoid such damage with a clear warning of wear in the lining of the Cadillac pads.
