Positive Molding Technology is an important factor in production of HARDEX® products. Positive molding results in a more uniform density in the production of the brake pad. It also allows using less resin content in formulation of the brake pad which can lead to improvement in the fading characteristic of the brake pad. The brake pads produced by positive molding process is proven to have much better stopping performance. High resin increases fading, which can increase stopping distances up to 50%.

All HARDEX® brake pads are manufactured using the same positive molding process utilized by Original Equipment suppliers. Positive molding uses extreme pressure to compress the friction material and bond it to the backing plate. This process assures consistent friction material density throughout the pad, resulting in even wear and performance characteristics throughout the life of the brake pad.

In addition to these features, Hardex® has introduced a Coating Layer to its brake pads. The objective of the OE STC is to improve performance and extend the lifespan of the brake pads. Traditionally, the OE STC comprises a ceramic-based substance administered to the brake pad surface during manufacturing.

This coating procedure heightens crucial friction performance metrics.

The OE STC diminishes noise and optimizes performance for both brake pads

and disc rotors.

OE STC MAIN FEATURES:

  • Reduced Noise: OE STC can help reduce noise generated during braking.

  • Improved Wear Resistance: The material in the coating can provide increased resistance to wear and abrasion.

  • Enhanced Heat Dissipation: The coating can help dissipate heat more efficiently.

  • Better Performance: OE STC  can improve braking performance.
