LPB brake pads were manufactured with Positive Mould technology used by Original Equipment (OE) suppliers. Positive Mould uses precise pressure and heat to compress friction materials and bond it to the backing plate.
This process guarantees that consistent friction material density is reached to every part of the pads and ensures even wear, excellent stopping performance and no fade throughout the life of the brake pads.
Most aftermarket brake pads are produced by ‘flashed mould’ method and require high resin content to bind all the components of the pads. High resin evaporates and creates fade at high temperature and increases stopping distance by up to 50% compared with the superior positive mould method. This could be the difference between avoiding an accident and being involved in an accident.
