NUCAP And SafeBraking.com Announce The Grand-Prize Winner In Photo Contest

According to NUCAP and Safebraking.com, the contest received numerous entries with photos showing pads with adhesive bonding experiencing delamination and rust jacking, which contributed to shorter brake pad life.

TORONTO – After a three-month contest, a grand prize winner for Safebraking.com‘s (in collaboration with NUCAP Industries) Bad Brake Pad Contest has been chosen.
 
The contest challenged anyone with a camera to take a picture of the worst brake pad they could find and send it in to the NUCAP and/or Safebraking.com‘s websites. Then, each month, a monthly and three weekly runners-up were selected from a panel of expert technicians and engineers. That monthly winner received a $250 Snap-on Tools gift card while each of the runners up took home a $100 Snap-on Tools gift card.
 
According to NUCAP and Safebraking.com, the contest received numerous entries with photos showing pads with adhesive bonding experiencing delamination and rust jacking, which contributed to shorter brake pad life.
 
The grand prize winner, Ivy Palmer from Ivy Automotive, is an automotive technician who had regularly submitted photos for the contest. After a few entries, Palmer sent in a picture of one of her customers’ brakes, whom she says came in because the customer heard their brakes grinding from the left rear tire, but kept driving until the calipers locked up.
 
As winner of the grand prize, Palmer will receive a round trip flight for two to Las Vegas with hotel accommodations for SEMA 2014.

Now LED lights are everywhere, and we’re all familiar with them, even in our homes, but the automotive industry has reaped the benefits as much as, if not more than, any other industry. Just like a diode, LEDs allow current flow in only one direction. When current, or electron flow occurs, photons are released.
