Why Is The Ceramic Disc Brake Pad So Expensive?

Oct. 25, 2018

It doesn't matter if a car runs fast. The important thing is to stop. It can be seen that the brake pads are an important part of the life of the car and the occupants. Among the types of brake pads, the most popular one is Ceramic Disc Brake Pad, but it's very expensive, do you know why?

The working principle of the car brake components is believed to be clear. When the brake pedal is pressed, the master cylinder will establish pressure in the brake circuit. The pressure is transmitted to the piston on the caliper via the brake oil. After the piston is pressed, the brake pad is pushed to clamp the brake disc or the brake drum, so that the brake pad and the brake disc are frictioned to reduce the rotation speed of the wheel to stop the vehicle.

From the principle we can see the important role played by the brake pads. A brake pad is mainly composed of the following parts, a metal base plate, a heat insulation layer and a friction block. The metal base plate also has the effects of reducing noise and shock absorption. The purpose of the heat insulation layer is to prevent a large amount of heat generated during braking friction from being transmitted to the brake oil passage, resulting in an increase in the temperature of the brake oil and the generation of air bubbles to affect the effect. The friction block is responsible for frictional friction with the brake disc and consists of a friction material and an adhesive.

The Ceramic Disc Brake Pad complements the shortage of organic and semi-metallic brake pads. Its material is mainly composed of a combination of mineral fiber, aramid fiber and ceramic fiber. On the one hand, since there is no metal material, the friction between the brake pads and the brake discs is significantly reduced. At the same time, the damage to the brake disc during the friction process is also significantly reduced.
