NRS TECHNOLOGY PROVIDES A HEAT RESISTANT ATTACHMENT SOLUTION TO SOLVE AN O.E. CHALLENGE

Toronto, Canada - NUCAP is proud to announce its latest back-plate project win involving FineBlankPlus with stepped-chamfer and NRS mechanical attachment for the North American FORD Transit platform. This is a result of NUCAP providing a thermally-resistant mechanical attachment solution capable of lasting across the brake pad life-time. The back-plates will be manufactured at NUCAP's own facility in Shanghai, China.

"The brake pad environment is a harsh one, with elevated temperatures that will degrade adhesives and paints. Adhesives are simply not adequate for sustained attachment integrity between the friction and the back-plate." Stated Parimal Mody, Global VP of Technology, Sales and Business Development at NUCAP. "This is a necessary and sufficient step to ensure safe brake pads across the life of the vehicle. Simply put, if an OE application has NRS - necessitated by fundamental system design considerations - then all service pads to follow must have the same or equivalent mechanical attachment."

About NUCAP and GALVANIZED NRS SAFE

GALVANIZED NRS SAFE is a patented process for the surface modification of disc brake backing plates, adding a consistent matrix of raised steel hooks that facilitate a mechanical bond between galvanized disc brake plate and friction materials.

NRS is often called "the hidden benefit", essentially invisible on a finished brake pad while delivering brake products that are:


  • Safe

  • Quiet

  • Green

  • Longer Lasting

New programs using the GALVANIZED NRS SAFE disc brake backing plates, deliver The Greenest, More Cost Effective, and ultimately, Safe brake products into the hands of the automotive industry.
