Wide range of application

Semi-metal brake pads are made of metal content ranging from 30% to 65% and bind with other filler materials.

Metal has a strong structure, good thermal conductivity & braking power.

When developing a new compound, different types of metal ingredients and ratios are used, taking into account various factors like the type of vehicle, driving style, performance requirement, etc.

Each compound with metal content presents a different performance that can be used from daily commuting to sports driving and even racing.

Responsive Braking, Safe Driving

Semi-metal brake pads have good thermal conductivity and braking power. They make up for the disadvantage of sintered brake pads which has less braking power at low temperature. It has a strong structure which makes it suitable for vans and heavily loaded vehicles and has been widely used in daily commuting, on-street, etc. Semi-metal brake pads are highly favorable by users due to their inexpensive affordable price.

However, when metal fibers reached a working temperature of 350-500 degree1, brake fade tends to occur. If used improperly or slamming into the brake too frequently, it may lead to deformation and scraping of the brake disc. Semi-metallic brake pads are also more likely to generate brake dust compared to other materials, which leads to a dirty rim and environmental pollution.

Note 1: Brake pads working temperature on daily driving are usually around 200-300 degree (Based on experiments of braking from speed 80kmh to 30kmh.)
