INTRODUCTION TO SINTERED BRAKE PAD

Different brake pads make difference in braking performance. People should choose the pad that are suitable for their needs. No matter which type to choose, both types have their pros and cons.

However, choose the right type depends on many things such as:

Rider weight?

Weather condition?

What kind of road and what type of activity you will be doing?

What are your rotor size?

Why Sintered Brake Pad?

  • function well under high temperature.
  • performance well under wet and dusty condition
  • brake well at high speed
  • suitable for any type of vehicle

The Difference Between Sintered and Organic Pad?

SINTERED PAD

SINTERED PAD

SINTERED PAD

Sintered pad is made from a mixture of metallic ingredients. They are good at transferring the heat generated by the friction that is created from the contact with the brake rotors. Metallic pads provide much better resistance to brake fade than Organic pads. They are harder and more durable, and are the best choice for heavier vehicles.

There pad is better if you are a heavier rider. They are better in wet, muddy, or dusty condition than organic pad. They are also a lot better if you are running small rotors or are on a long descend.

Pros:

SINTERED PAD

SINTERED PAD

They are available in heavier duty towing formulations, for trucks and SUV’s.They help pull heat away from the center of the braking system

  • Still functional at higher temperature
  • Better performance in wet or dusty condition
  • Brake well at high speed

Cons:

SINTERED PAD

ORGANIC PAD

 

  • They tend to generate more black dust.
  • They are more abrasive and could possible wear through brakes faster.
  • Louder when brake

ORGANIC PAD

ORGANIC PAD

ORGANIC PAD

 The Organic Brake Pads are made from natural materials like glass and rubber that have been bonded together with high heat resistant resins. They are a much softer brake pad which results in a quieter pad, but one that also wears faster and creates a lot more dust. Organic Brake Pads are best suited for light weight small cars that have limited hard stops. They are a large amount of initial grab. 

Pros

ORGANIC PAD

Pros

  • Quieter
  • More initial bite
  • Prevent heat buildup

Cons

ORGANIC PAD

Pros

  • Wear quicker
  • Not good in wet, muddy, dusty conditions
