How to Choose Brake Pads when Driving in Harsh Environments?

Jan. 23, 2020

Today Chevrolet Brake Pad Manufacturer will tell you what kind of brake pads should be selected under several harsh environments.


How to choose a disc for vehicles traveling in mountainous areas? Here, suggestions are mainly given from the perspective of formula design analysis. Because of the many slopes and long slopes of vehicles traveling in mountainous areas, small vehicles often have higher speeds and will brake sharply when approaching corners. Therefore, it is recommended to choose friction coefficients at high speed and high temperature. The specified friction coefficient for selecting the brake pads should be above 0.42.


How to choose drums for vehicles traveling in mountainous areas? Here, suggestions are mainly given from the perspective of formula design analysis. Due to the many slopes and long slopes of vehicles traveling in mountainous areas, the phenomenon of stalling the brakes (that is, driving with brakes) is more common, which often results in brake drums and brake pads. The frictional heat generation is relatively serious and the temperature of the counterpart is high. Therefore, it is recommended to choose a product with a high temperature friction system. At the same time, it should be considered that there should be no cracking on the surface of the brake pads after friction.

How to choose brake pads for vehicles traveling in coastal areas? Here, the suggestions are mainly given from the perspective of formula design. Vehicles in coastal areas or humid areas, due to high air humidity, are prone to rust if brake pads containing more metal are used. Therefore, it is recommended to choose low metal or Ceramic Brake Pad as well.


How to choose brake pads for vehicles traveling in the Northwest Plateau? Here, the suggestions are mainly given from the perspective of formula design analysis. The air in the Northwest Plateau is dry, so there are generally no special selection requirements for the brake pads, and products with high cost performance can be selected based on comprehensive evaluation.


Why does the handbrake sometimes not work well in winter? In winter in the north, when the temperature is below freezing point, if the handbrake does not work well, it may be due to the ice layer or water layer between the brake pad and the counterpart, which reduces the friction coefficient. When this phenomenon occurs, only the When the car is slightly moving, pull the handbrake lightly and rub the brake pads with the counterpart for a few seconds, then it can be eliminated.


Why does the handbrake sometimes not work well in heavy rain? In the rainy season, if the hand brake is not good, it may be due to the existence of a water layer between the brake pad and the counterpart, which reduces the friction coefficient. When this phenomenon occurs, you only need to gently pull the hand brake while the car is moving slightly. Rub the brake pads on the mating parts for a few seconds to eliminate them.


The above is the OE Brake Pads Manufacturer's suggestions for choosing brake pads when traveling in harsh environments. I hope to help you.
