Disc Brake Pads
Brake rotors of disc brakes rotate with the wheels, and brake pads, which are fitted to the brake calipers, clamp on these rotors to stop or decelerate the wheels. The brake pads pushing against the rotors generate friction, which transforms kinetic energy into a thermal energy.
This thermal energy generates heat, but since the main components are exposed to the atmosphere, this heat can be diffused efficiently. This heat-dissipating property reduces brake fade, which is the phenomenon where braking performance is influenced by the heat. Another advantage of disc brakes is its resistance to water fade, which occurs when the water on the brakes significantly reduces braking force. When the vehicle is in motion, the rotor spins at high speeds and this rotational motion discharges the water from the rotors themselves, resulting in stable braking force.
Disc brakes are generally used in passenger cars, but due to their stable performance at higher speeds and resistance to brake fade, they are gradually spreading into the commercial vehicle segment, where drum brakes were traditionally chosen for their longer service life. There is increasing demand from customers for longer service life and higher quality, and Baiyun is committed to meeting them through further development of the disc brake’s reliability. There are two types of disc brakes.
Commercial Vehicle Brake Pads
Top quality brake pads for light commercial, heavy-duty and off-highway vehicles from one of the world’s leading suppliers of brake parts to the commercial vehicles market.
Extra durability and reduced wear, that means a longer life and lower maintenance costs.
Friction materials targeted to specific applications.
Demonstrated durability under all conditions bringing highly efficient cost-per-kilometre braking.
Latest Technical Advances
BAIYUN constantly invests in new technology for light commercial, heavy-duty and off-highway vehicles, this way, we’re in control of innovation. Our BAIYUN team brings you the latest innovations and advanced options for many of our applications:
BAIYUN – brake pad system developed by BAIYUN ensuring a permanent, welded connection between the spring and the brake pad’s back plate that brings significant advantages by making a secure placement, increasing applied force and reducing idle wear when the brakes are not in use.
Cast-Iron Back plate – a BAIYUN patented technology featuring a lighter back plate than standard that provides better bonding between the back plate and friction material, with less risk of corrosion and improved heat dissipation, leading to superior durability.
Our range for commercial vehicles covers 99% of vehicles on the road, the latest products for the greatest possible coverage. This way, you’re in control of coverage.
Trusted By Vehicle Manufacturers
BAIYUN is factory fitted as standard by many of the world’s manufacturers of vans, trucks, trailers and buses. Our parts are of original equipment quality, bringing added safety and reliability.
