Default Bendix Brake Pad Compounds Part Two: Low Metallic



This is part two of a three-part article. For non-asbestos organic (NAO) brake pads, please see part one, for semi-metallic compounds, please see part three.

In part one, non-asbestos organic (NAO) brake pads were discussed. These brake pads are suitable for a wide range of driving styles, with their low dust, consistent brake performance at relatively low temperatures and speeds. However, when cars regularly travel at higher speeds or require greater performance, brake temperatures rise, and this can cause brake fade, reducing stopping performance. In these situations, brake pads with Low Metallic compounds excel.

Low Metallic (Low-Met) brake pads are suited to performance and high speed driving styles, and contain high levels of mineral abrasives to provide better stopping power. The Bendix Ultimate and Street Road & Track contains these ingredients to provide exceptional stopping power and shorter stopping distances. It is also more resistant to brake fade at high temperatures, delivering consistent brake pedal feel lap after hot lap. The Bendix Ultimate and Street Road & Track is recommended for high performance vehicles that do spirited driving or track racing, where braking performance is paramount.



Bendix Ultimate brake pads feature HPC technology that reduces brake dust, without compromising stopping performance. Bendix Ultimate and Street Road & Track brake pads also come with Bendix’s proprietary brake shims, featuring a nitrile rubber coating that absorbs noise and vibration under braking.

The next article will feature Semi Metallic brake pads suited for, commercial vehicles, utes or cars that often carry heavy loads.

The choice of friction material will impact on your braking experience which is why it’s important to match your driving needs and vehicle with the right brake pad formulation. Visit HERE to select and fit the right Bendix brake pad for your driving style.

Make sure that at your next brake service, ask your mechanic for the right Bendix brake pads to suit your driving style, or Bendix products are available from leading automotive stockist. Click HERE to locate your nearest stockist.
