What You Need To Know About Disc Brakes

Your car’s brakes are the most important part of your vehicle. There is nothing more essential than the ability to stop safely and in time when you’re on the road.

Disc brake pads are an advancement in braking technology that was widely adopted by the automotive industry in the 60s. Most modern vehicles are built with front disc brakes, as opposed to drum brakes, although some high-performance or all wheel drive vehicles will have disc brakes on all four wheels.

Disc brakes work by applying hydraulic pressure to a set of callipers, which press against the rotors of the car wheel. The friction between the disc brake pads and the rotor reduces the motion of the axle, and will slow the vehicle.

Disc brakes have been shown to provide better stopping performance when compared to drum brakes, as disc brake pads are more easily cooled and experience less brake fade over time. Disc brakes also perform better in wet conditions.

Good quality brakes are a necessity and safety is not negotiable. That’s why IDEAL Brake Parts provides products that are designed with safety and affordability in mind.
