Q&A

  • What is the function of brake pads ?

    A: The working principle of the brake system is because of friction. The friction between the brake pad & brake disc and the tire & ground is used to convert the kinetic energy of the vehicle into the heat energy after friction, and the car is stopped.


  • How many hours running for the brake pads usually ?

    A: Generally speaking ,when using 40,000 to 60,000 kilometers, it is suggest that customers should to replace brake pads , but some brake pads are still good after more than 100,000 kilometers.So choose a good brake pads is important .


  • When should replace a new brake pads ?

    A: To ensure the safety, it is recommended to replace the friction material when the thickness is less than 6mm, and it must be replaced when the thickness is less than 3mm,.(By the way , new brake pads usually is 1.5cm).


  • Why should we do if the brake pads make abnormal noises?

    A: So many issues will make brake pads abnormal noises

    If there are debris or water issues in the brake pad make abnormal (such as :rainwater) , we should clean the brake pads or replace a new brake pads .

    Regular check the brake system is necessary .


  • What should we do if the brake pads alarm?

    A: We should replace a new brake pads before the brake pads alarming , if alarming we should stop driving and to check the Braking System .


  • Which of the formulas is the best one ?

    A: As far as the performance index of safe braking of brake pads is concerned, the this four formulas are all excellent formulas.

    In terms of safety, economy and environmental , ceramics are better than semi-metals, and semi-metals are better than low-metals


  • What is the advantage of metallic brake pads ?

    Metallic brake pads included Low-metal , Semi-metal .

    Performance-driven drivers prefer the metallic brake pads because they offer improved braking performance in a much wider range of temperatures and conditions.

    Because metals are such a good conductor of heat, they tend to be able to withstand more heat while simultaneously helping braking systems cool back down more quickly.


  • What is the advantage of ceramic brake pads ?

    Noise-Level: Ceramic brake pads are very quiet, creating little-to-no extra sound when the brakes are applied.

    Wear & Tear Residue: Compared to organic brake pads, ceramic brake pads tend to produce less dust and other particles over time as they wear down.

    Temperature & Driving Conditions: Compared to organic brake pads, ceramic brake pads can be more reliable in a wider range of temperatures and driving conditions.

    Environmentally friendly


  • What kind of formulas are available of Torch Brake Pads ?

    Ceramic brake pads , Low-metal brake pads , Semi-metal brake pads and Carbon Ceramic brake pads are available etc.


  • What is the main parts of the brake pad?

    A: Brake pads are generally consisted of steel plates, heat insulation ,silencer and friction material.
