Brake pads you can be grateful for

As we make our way into the season of thanks and gratitude, we find ourselves appreciating the things that may frequently go unnoticed in day to day life. If you flip a lightswitch, the bulb comes on. And when you turn on the faucet, clean water flows from the tap. If you hit your brakes, your vehicle slows to a silent stop.

With some brake pads, however, comes squealing, clicking, or pedal vibrations. That means it’s time to replace your brake pads.

If you’re looking to make a brake pad switch while, at the same time, improving the performance of your vehicle, considering a component like the NRS Galvanized Brake Pads might be the place to start. NRS uses premium materials designed for increased lifespan and improved performance. While they are an inexpensive upgrade, they can make a noticeable difference when it comes to vehicle performance.

A sustainable solution

A sustainable and eco-friendly approach is one NRS prides itself on taking. But producing brake pads that are 100% recyclable, lead and copper-free does more than just benefit the environment. Compared to traditional brakes, the friction materials used in NRS Galvanized Brakes produce less dust which leads to increased component longevity. When it is time to get a new set, however, your old set can be reclaimed for future use.

Corrosion resistance

Thanks to the fully galvanized backing on NRS brake pads, the lifetime of the brake pads will extend far beyond its traditional counterpart. Because zinc is naturally corrosion resistant, it makes the perfect backing that won’t chip or peel unlike traditional brake pads that utilize layers of paint instead.

The layer of paint will provide protection for the steel underneath for a short while, but due to the heat caused by braking along with moisture in the air, the paint will start to flake and chip away. Overtime, the exposed steel will begin to rust due to exposure to the elements.

To prevent the layers from separating overtime, the NRS-patented mechanical brake pad attachment ensures that the engineered layers of the brake pad stay together. Thanks to the zinc-plating technology and other premium materials used in the NRS Galvanized Brake Pads, the component can dissipate heat and cool efficiently leading to a longer-lasting performance.

Quiet performance

Utilizing quality brake pads can also contribute to quieting your car’s driving noise. Heat generated during normal braking operations can cause adhesive on traditional brake pads to soften. The friction material of the pad and the brake backing then start to separate which leads to vibrations that contribute to driving noise. However, NRS Brakes are permanently fused together thanks to a patented mechanical process which ensures the pieces won’t separate over time.

Additionally, NRS brake pad kits come with a piston cushion that absorbs vibrations from the piston further reducing braking noise. The cushion also protects the cap of the caliper piston thus extending the life of the caliper.

A cornucopia of offerings

All of the common headaches that come from the wear and tear of braking can be avoided through the use of NRS Galvanized Brake Pads. Their zinc-plating technology along with the NRS-patented mechanical brake pad attachment keeps the layers together through the duration of the components lifespan and also produces less brake dust. The longevity of NRS Galvanized Brake Pads is also credited to the premium materials used which allow the component to dissipate heat and cool efficiently.

NRS Galvanized Brake Pads are carefully engineered to deliver long-lasting quality you can be grateful for.
