JBA - One important component in a car is its braking system. In today's modern cars, the braking system has used disc brakes. But this disc brake always escapes the attention of the car owner so minimal maintenance.
Like other components, disc brakes can also be damaged. One of the damages that are often experienced by any car is the disc brake disks that run out thereby reducing the performance of the braking system.
Even so, the time period for disc brakes for each car is different. Some are relatively short because the quality of disc brakes is not good or because of its use.
"What happens is usually because the car uses poor quality brake linings so that it consumes disk discs," explained Harry, the chief technician at the Auto Clinic auto shop, as reported by the Otodriver.com page.
According to Harry, the quality of the brake lining needs to be maintained properly so that braking performance becomes more optimal.
"If you want to use brake pads, that's fine, no one forbids. But to note, not all aftermarket brake linings are good quality, "explained Harry.
Harry recommends that car owners not choose brake lining with hard material. Because it will make the disk discs become faster eroded so that the disk discs run out quickly.
If this is left unchecked, it will make car owners faster to replace the disk discs.
Therefore, use the original brake lining from the car manufacturer so that the disc disk does not run out in a quick time.
"It's good to use an original brake pad. Because, the brake lining has been adjusted to the type of car, the time period of use of the brake lining and the disk disc, "he explained again.
Even so, the many aftermarket brake linings on the market with materials that are certainly harder than the original, also have a very positive effect on the braking system because it can bite better.
"Indeed in general, aftermarket brake linings are made from more brass powder so as to make braking better. But the problem is that it can make the disk discs run out faster, "concluded Harry again.
