Brake pads are typically made of steel, copper alloy, graphite, or ceramic materials, which provide friction and heat dissipation when the brakes are applied. Brake pads will be attached to the side or top of the caliper, depending on the type of vehicle. When you press the brake pedal, hydraulic pressure pushes the pistons in the brake caliper against each side of the rotor.

The friction created between your vehicle’s brake pad and rotor causes resistance and helps slow down your car until it comes to a complete stop. Over time, this friction wears down rubber parts on your car’s brake pad, leading to decreased performance or damage. It is essential to inspect brake pads regularly for wear so that you can replace them as needed. This will ensure that your vehicle stops quickly and efficiently, helping to keep you and other drivers on the roads of Wilmington, NC, safe.
