How Brake Pads are Made

  • Published: 03 July 2019
  • Brake pad replacement? Ever wonder how to make brake pads? Usually I show you a DIY like how to replace brake pads, but in this video I show you how brake pads are made!
    Brake pads from this factory:
    To make brake pads, we start out with raw pickled and oiled steel. The steel gets stamped into a brake pad backing plate which gets analyzed to make sure it meets OEM specifications. Next the brake pad backing plate goes to the NRS press to get a mechanical attachment. Then the backing plates get galvanized and finally brake pad friction material is added. The manufacturer can add and friction material they want such as semi-metallic, organic, or ceramic friction material. Lastly the shim is made and installed on the brake pad and they can be sent to testing! When it is all said and done, I took the brake pads we made and installed them on my truck with new brake rotors!

    The company that let me film in their factory is giving all of my fans 20% off their brakes using the code "20off" at checkout. I do not make any money from this! They are doing this to get you guys to try out their new technology brake pads and I will always share a discount to help my subscribers. Here is the link:

    This video was one of my most favorite that I have ever made! It took about a months worth of work and I hope you enjoy! It took a lot of time and work to make and NRS brakes literally closed down part of their manufacturing line so I could film this. It’s absolutely incredible how much help they were! I hope you guys like it and I hope other brands reach out so we can do more of these how-it’s-made episodes!

    Also I will be in Ireland for a meet-up on Saturday July 13 so check out my Instagram or YouTube stories for more info if you are from Ireland!

            Hi Chris Fix. Since I havent seen a place where to send you a message, I would like to know how to make the driver seat comfortable again after 30 years...and +260K km. I mean, it is not as comfortable as it was and is geting curved. In my case is a Mercedes w124 230CE, but I am sure this is a common problem.
            By the way, I wish I found someone like you in my town to help me restore my car.
            Thanks from Barcelona, Spain.

                                                  Very cool! Love your videos Chris! Thanks for all you do. As an idea; I'd be interested to see how windshields or other auto glass is made. Since today's glass isn't just glass, I'd be curious to see how they mold the glass to shape and add sound dampening etc.

                                                      Hey Chris, I got a question please. So for my A/C in my car, on the driver side, it shoots out normal cold air for this summer. But on the passenger side, it shoots out hot air which concernes me. Does that mean that I got to charge the A/C compressor or is there something more wrong with it?
