NUCAP RETENTION SYSTEM (NRS™)

 
Backing plate Friction wih Slots

The Pace Award Winning (2001) NUCAP Retention System (NRS™), with over 1 billion units in service, globally – all since its launch in 1999, is now the premiere Mechanical Attachment Technology in the world. Originally used on those platforms where extreme performance was the standard, NRS™ use has evolved to capture the full range of cost benefits that mechanical attachment brings to friction manufacturing.

NRS™ TECHNOLOGY LICENSEES

NRS™ IS STREAMLINED. EFFICIENT. GREEN MANUFACTURING

From start to finish, NRS™ technology has been developed to maximize efficiency, while minimizing required resources. NUCAP has examined the typical IM friction manufacturing cycle, and eliminated the wasteful and environmentally harmful steps. Choosing NRS™ as a friction attachment technology also eliminates both plate preparation, and the use of chemical adhesives. No chemical adhesive means:

• no hazardous waste
• fewer harmful emissions from the production and disposal of glue
• lower production costs

 

NRS™ HOOK GEOMETRY

NRS™ Hooks are engineered to specific tolerances, including height, curl, offset (lateral curl), and density (hooks per cm2). Hook Geometry is consistent across all sized of NRS™ – HD (CV, industrial, racing), Standard (passenger cars), Mini (motorcycles, ATVs, bicycles), and Micro (plastics and fine-granulation molded products).

NRS™ ENHANCES

NRS™ allows brake pads to be run down to the last few millimeters of friction material, while still maintaining 100% retention, enhancing life of your brake pads and saving you money on costly replacements.

ADHESIVE/NRS™ COMPARISON

Tests show that the NRS™ plates will keep the friction attached to the backing plate until the very end of the brake pad life. Adhesives break down quite rapidly during the braking cycle. This can cause edgelift, which can lead to noise, vibration, rust-jacking and eventual breakdown of the brake pad. NRS™ drastically improves retention and shear values no matter if there is glue or not and over all conditions.

ELIMINATE EDGE LIFT AND DELAMINATION

• Eliminates premature replacement due to noise
• Eliminates partialy broken friction material
• Pad integrity right to the last millimeter of friction

NRS™ INNOVATION RECOGNIZED

NUCAP was recognized with the Automotive News PACE Award for its NUCAP Retention System (NRS™), as well as the spirit of innovation that characterizes the culture of the company.
