The importance of shims, slots and chamfers

 

Shims

  • Stamped metal plates coated with sound damping materials improve noise abatement and vibration for the life of the pad
  • Placed on backside of backing plate to help reduce the vibrations that cause brakes to squeal

Slots

  • Vertical grooves cut in brake pads
  • Significantly reduce pad bending when heated in normal braking conditions
  • Reduce noise that can result from pads that have become concave
  • Reduce brake fade by providing passage for gases and dust to escape at high brake temperatures

Chamfers

  • Angled or beveled edges on the leading and trailing ends of the brake pads
  • Chamfers on leading edge of brake pads reduce digging into the rotor
  • Help eliminate stick/slip vibration, which causes brake noise
