Overview, features and benefits

  • All brake pads are manufactured to OE specifications and exceed ECE R90 standards
  • All brake pads are ‘scorched’ to shorten the bedding in process
  • OE underlayer technology reduces heat transfer to the brake fluid and reduces noise

Bosch pads exceed ECE R90 standards

Bosch brake pads exceed the ECE-R90 standard.
What the Certificate of Conformity ECE-R90 covers:

  • Ensures defined minimum safety requirements
  • Is mandatory for all IAM brake pads (in ECE countries)

What it does not cover:

  • No comfort standard (noise, vibration, judder)
  • No durability standard for pads and discs
  • No servere temperature fading test

That’s why we are confident our full range of brake pads excel.

Bosch brake pads have a highly stable coefficient to ensure performance does not diminish even under extreme conditions.

The technology behind the pad...

brake-pads-exploded
  • Slot(s) – Allow the pad to flex under pressure to prevent the friction material from cracking
  • Shims – Damping material – This absorbs vibration and minimises noise
  • Chamfers – Reduce noise during ‘bedding-in’ process
  • These features are only applied to a brake pad when required
