Comline to take brake pads to the next level in terms of noise reduction and product fitment
From autumn 2012, all newly developed brake pads will come as standard with: the next generation in three layer, rubber-metal-rubber (RMR) shims which exceed aftermarket standard to achieve that of OE; back plate and friction profile design as per OE specification. In addition, all fitted accessories on brake pad sets will be supplied with advanced Trivalent coating.
Comline’s Sales and Marketing Director, Malcolm Rosher, explained: “Our braking programmes are a cornerstone of the business. From our own two braking factories, we offer one of the largest ‘ECE R90’ approved brake pad programmes in the world; a true ‘one stop shop’ for all makes of European, Japanese and Korean cars and vans, and have recently introduced a range for commercial vehicles.”
“The level of financial and engineering investment directed at our brake pad programmes is testament to Comline’s commitment to this growing product area,” Malcolm added. “These exciting developments further support our main objectives of offering the highest quality product at competitive prices, as well as highlighting our focus on customer service.”
The RMR shim sits on the back plate and its main purpose is noise insulation. Shims designed using the rubber-metal-rubber layer configuration utilise a new generation of rubber fibre and are proven to offer a more substantial noise reduction, particularly during the ‘bedding-in’ period. This advanced shim also employs a revolutionary ‘clip-on’ design which helps attach the shim to the back plate more securely; ensuring that it doesn’t rotate within the caliper, thereby maximising noise reduction efficiency.
Trivalent coating offers significant environmental benefits. It reduces the amount of material used in electroplating (Hexavalent chromate) in the environment without sacrificing corrosion resistance.
