Presentation Description

Brake fading is usually caused by the overheating of a brake pad and can occur on cars, trucks, SUVs, and motorcycles. Gases can be released as the brake pad material breaks down and that forms a microscopic layer against the pad that reduces friction. However some vehicle owners ignore these recommendations and don't bother replacing the fluid for years and years. You can get it by visiting us at Partsavatar Autoparts, Toronto and if you have any concern about your car

What is Brake Fade How many Types of Brake Fade of car In order to slow a vehicle down the brake pad and rotor must create mutual friction in the braking system. If the Rear Brake Pad are applied and this does not occur it’s referred to as brake fade. When brake fade happens it results in unexpected or inconsistent braking typically increasing stopping distance and the likelihood of an accident. Brake fading is usually caused by the overheating of a brake pad and can occur on cars trucks SUVs and motorcycles. What are the Different Types of Brake Fade Overheating the brake pads: The pads are built to work up to a certain temperature. They tend to increase in effectiveness as they get warm but above a certain temperature they begin to break down. Mechanism in them can dissolve and this lubricates the brake disc. Gases can be released as the brake pad material breaks down and that forms a microscopic layer against the pad that reduces friction.

Brake Fluid Fade: Brake fluid fade is most likely the second most probable cause. Auto manufacturer call for brake fluid of car to be changed every so often. However some vehicle owners ignore these recommendations and dont bother replacing the fluid for years and years. This cause the brake fluid to shame and soak up water and other remains the water absorption causes the brake fluid to boil at a much lower temperature when it gets hot. When this happens steam forms in the braking system and steam will compress. When the fluid gets too hot the brakes will feel spongy and will no longer will stop the vehicle. Fitting this is easy: Change your brake fluid occasionally. Follow your manufacturer recommendations as to how often you should change the brake fluid. Most cars and trucks should have their brake fluids changed every two years or so. Mechanical Fade: This is not an ordinary cause of brake fade but it does occur every once in a as. Sometimes new brake pads have a resin in them and that resin can break down when the pads get really hot. As they break down they produce gases that will cause the friction between the pads and the rotor to be lost. This in turn causes the brakes to stop working.

How to prevent brake fade: After install new brake pads avoid sheer hills and protracted periods of brake for the first week or so. Very few brakes will cause this type of problem but it is good to be aware of it.
