Overview of How Brake Pads Work

Brake pads are a key element of the overall braking system on your vehicle. A car owner should have basic understanding of how brake pads work.

Brake pads are designed to push onto the rotor of the braking system. When that occurs, friction occurs that causes the wheel and the vehicle to slow down. The brake pad includes a lining, which is the actual point of contact between the pad and the rotor. Brake lining comes in one of three forms, organic, semi-metallic, and ceramic. The lining of the brake pad does wear down over time.
