The brake pad is a safety-critical component in the vehicle’s braking system that creates negative acceleration by creating friction with the brake disc. , Then converts it into thermal energy. This thermal energy is then dissipated in space, in which the car moves from a state of motion to stillness or slows down

Requirements for brake pads are high and stable coefficient of friction, low weight, low noise, low wear rate and acceptable price while providing good performance

In the past, brake pads were made of asbestos. The reason for using asbestos is that the pads are exposed to high friction, friction also produces a lot of heat. Asbestos is a material that absorbs and dissipates heat well. But because asbestos wears out, it produces dust that is harmful to health if inhaled. A lot of asbestos dust is produced when braking. Today, brake pads and other components of the brake system are made of organic biodegradable materials

Organic brake pads, sometimes called non-asbestos organic brake pads, are made from natural materials such as glass, rubber and resin. These materials can withstand high temperatures. The advantage of organic brake pads is that they are made of materials that do not cause contamination when worn. These pads are softer than other pads, so they make less noise and do not damage the disc
