Different metal compositions in brake pads influence durability, braking noise and resistance to environmental influences. Depending on the metals used, brake pads are resistant to oil, seawater or other extreme factors. We may also completely dispense with the use of metals and use a metal-free composition.
The influence of the brake lining on the environment is also important for the composition. This is because every metal has a different effect on the environment. For brake pads used indoors and or production halls, we always have people's health in mind. For brake pads used outdoors, we pay particular attention to the environment. For example, depending on the area of application, we completely avoid the use of copper to prevent negative effects on aquatic organisms.
