NRS Brakes Expands Lineup Of Brake Pads For EVs, Hybrids

The pads feature ultra-premium friction material, fully galvanized backing plates and SHARKMetal mechanical attachment.

Following the release of its new EV galvanized brake pads for the Tesla Model 3, NRS Brakes has grown its NRS-EV lineup to cover vehicles from more than 25 manufacturers and 60 different models, including popular hybrids and electrics such as the Prius, Volt and Leaf. 

NRS Brakes was the first manufacturer to recognize that EVs and hybrids needed a different kind of brake pad, the company noted. Because of regenerative braking, the friction materials on the brake are engaged less often, dissipating less moisture and other buildups that can lead to premature rust and corrosion – particularly in harsh environments.

NRS-EV galvanized brake pads feature ultra-premium friction material, fully galvanized backing plates and SHARKMetal mechanical attachment. Together, these technologies ensure the pad will never rust, corrode or separate, meaning long-lasting life and durability over the full life of the pad, according to the company.

“The NRS-EV lineup is also the first brake pad designed from the beginning to be as good for the environment as today’s EVs,” Toronto-based NUCAP Industries said in a news release. “Because unlike traditional brake pads, they use no industrial adhesives or paint and contain no copper or lead, NRS-EV can stake its claim as the greenest brake pads on the market.” 

NRS-EV also might be the quietest brake pads available, according to NUCAP. Designed to match the “whisper-quiet operation” of electrics, selected models for the NRS-EV kit include NRS’ patented Piston Cushion technology. The custom-fitted elastomer coated ring fits precisely into the caliper piston, greatly reducing noisy stops caused by vibration or excessive heat, according to the company.

“No other manufacturer provides such a comprehensive solution for EV aftermarket brake pads,” the company said. “Exceeding every standard for performance, total cost of ownership, quietness and environmental responsibility, NRS-EV pads were tested in one of the world’s most advanced brake-testing labs to ensure the highest levels of quality, performance and fit for the full range of EVs and hybrids.” 

NRS Brakes’ NRS-EV galvanized brake pads are among the more than 60 new SKUs released for 2020 makes and models. To view a complete listing of NRS-EV galvanized brake pads and vehicle compatibility, visit the NRS Brakes website.
