NUCAP Industries has launched a new line of Galvanized NRS Brake Pads, featuring mechanically attached friction on a galvanized steel backing plate.
NUCAP says that it has spent decades researching the nature of galvanization and molding friction material onto the galvanized plate. According to the company, this process prevents rust on brake pads.
Galvanized NRS brake pads will prolong the life of brake pads and improve safety, NUCAP says. Mechanical Retention has been specified by OE manufacturers on many medium- and heavy-duty applications. The Friction Materials Standards Institute, or FMSI, has now indicated the references that require Mechanical Retention, representing a shift in the automotive community toward greater brake safety and awareness.
“Mechanically-attached friction on a galvanized steel backing plate is by far the safest, most long-lasting brake pad you can install in a vehicle today,” said Montu Khokhar, chief executive officer of NUCAP Industries. “We are honored to introduce Galvanized NRS Brake Pads, which represents a revolution in brake pad technology, and as a response to a lack of consistency in the aftermarket. Mechanics across North America and globally can provide a high level of safety to their customers by using our brake pads, which are galvanized and not painted and work seamlessly with all friction composites.”
