Following the release of its new EV galvanized brake pads for the Tesla Model 3, NRS Brakes has grown its NRS-EV line-up to cover vehicles from more than 25 manufacturers and 60 different models including popular hybrids and electrics like Prius, Volt and Leaf.
NRS Brakes was one of the first manufacturers to recognize that EVs and hybrids needed a different kind of brake pad. Because of regenerative braking, the friction materials on the brake are engaged less often, dissipating less moisture and other build-ups that can lead to premature rust and corrosion – particularly in harsh environments. NRS-EV galvanized brake pads feature ultra-premium friction material, fully galvanized backing plates and SHARKMetal mechanical attachment. Together, these technologies ensure the pad will never rust, corrode or separate, meaning long-lasting life and durability over the full life of the pad, said the company.
The NRS-EV lineup was designed from the beginning to be as good for the environment as today’s EVs. Unlike traditional brake pads, they use no industrial adhesives or paint and contain no copper or lead, stated the company.
If that weren’t enough, NRS-EV might also be the quietest brake pads available. Designed to match the whisper-quiet operation of electrics, selected models for the NRS-EV kit include NRS’ patented Piston Cushion technology. The custom-fitted elastomer coated ring fits precisely into the caliper piston, greatly reducing noisy stops caused by vibration or excessive heat.
Exceeding every standard for performance, total cost of ownership, quietness and environmental responsibility, NRS-EV pads were tested in one of the world’s most advanced brake testing labs to ensure the highest levels of quality, performance and fit for the full range of EVs and Hybrids, said the company.
NRS Brakes’ NRS-EV galvanized brake pads are part of more than 60 new SKUs released for 2020 makes and models.
