NRS Brakes highlights proper brake pad selection as EV sales rise

NRS Brakes noted that brake pad selection is of the utmost importance as reports of increased EV sales skyrocket. A recent report noted that sales of electrified vehicles hit a record in Q3 2022. With sustainability investments being made by consumer and commercial entities through the procurement of EVs, NRS Brakes is focused on providing the best brake pad on the market for EVs.

An EV brake pad demands three core benefits:

  1. Long service life;
  2. Quiet operation; and
  3. Minimal environmental impact.

Crafted from galvanized steel for superior protection and durability, NRS Galvanized Brake Pads guarantee consistent and quality performance. With the NRS patented mechanical design, these brake pads are built to last and will not separate throughout the duration of its lifecycle. The use of galvanized steel allows the friction to wear down completely, fighting any corrosion or layer separation.

NRS Galvanized Brake Pads prevent corrosion and dust using galvanized, zinc-plating technology, compared to many traditional brake pads that utilize painted parts and adhesive which chip away and soften over time.

Additionally, these brakes have increased heat dissipation which helps keep the brakes cool, even during long trips. They also produce less brake dust, NRS noted. The NRS Piston Cushion Insert is designed to help reduce the noise level by up to 90%, NRS Galvanized Brake Pads are also quiet. The NRS Piston Cushion Insert acts as a barrier to minimize heat transfer to brake fluids, thus reducing brake noise.

NRS Galvanized Brake Pads are 100% recyclable and can be reclaimed for future use. Additionally, NRS Galvanized Brake Pads utilize premium semi-metallic and copper-free and lead-free materials.

The brake pads have an easy installation process that can be completed in just a few minutes and come with a two-year warranty as a guarantee of their quality and performance, though most drivers are able to use theirs for four years before replacing them.
