NRS Brakes highlights important features for harsh weather driving

With the winter weather coming in and road conditions worsening, now is the time to evaluate the state and durability of vehicle components. Brake health is an essential upkeep to be maintained as slush and ice begin to cover the roads. NRS Galvanized Brake Pads are able to withstand even the harshest of conditions through the use of a patented attachment system that ensures the layers of the brake pad will stay connected throughout its lifespan. Compared to traditional brake pads, which use adhesive that wears away and is susceptible to corrosion, NRS brake pads will last much longer by keeping the component protected from harsh elements, chemicals and rust.

Because traditional brake pads are prone to corrosion and rust, they will have to be frequently changed to ensure proper operations. However, the quality materials used in NRS brake pads ensure superior durability and last about four years for most drivers. Additionally, the brake backing is zinc-plated through galvanization, a process that protects against rust. This bonds the zinc to the interior steel so the brake pads will never rust, crack or deteriorate.

Having brakes that work well and work consistently is paramount to safety and performance. The galvanized backing and patented attachment technology means NRS brake pads avoid most common causes of brake failure, not only improving the performance and safety but also increasing the life of the brake pad.
