    Yes. In Oypar production facilities, mold series can be produced, as a result customized brake pad production can be made according to demand.

  4. Why does brake pad make noise?
    There are many reasons why pads make noise. The most important ones are;
    • Uneven work surface (brake disc).
    • Failure to set the pad properly
    • The disc is too thin
    • Glazing of the pad surface due to overheating.
  5. How to prevent the pads from making noise?
    • Mirror surface should be smooth
    • Correct placement of the pad is very important. After removing the old pad, the housing should be cleaned thoroughly. If necessary, the bearing should be brushed with a wire brush, until not even a grain of sand remains.
    • Over thinned brake discs should be replaced with new ones.
    • In order to prevent the surface of the pad from becoming glazed, it should not overheat. In this case, the pad that gets hot during use should be cooled quickly.
  6. Why does the pad smell during use?
    Not every pad smells. If there are substances that are not resistant to high temperatures in the mixture, those substances can smell due to overheating. The pads see a maximum of 200 degrees during production. However, they see 250-280 degrees on the vehicle. For this reason, the odor can be smelled. But brake pad smell does not indicate poor quality.

  7. Is asbestos used in Rondex pads?
    Asbestos is not used in Rondex pads. Asbestos is used in no pads produced in Turkey. Many countries banned the use of asbestos after it was claimed to be carcinogenic in the world. Turkey also has banned use of asbestos since 2006.

  8. How many types of brake pads are there, depending on where they are used?

    They are divided into 2 main branches as brake pads and clutch pads according to where they are used.
    Pad types;
    For example drum pads, disc pads, segment pads, rubber pads, wire pads, clutch pads, wedge pads, woven pads, machine pads...

  9. What are the advantages over each other when compared to disc brake pad and drum brake pad?
    Drum brake pad was used in all heavy vehicles in the past. Over time, it started to leave its place to disc pad. Passenger cars and commercial vehicles generally use disc pads. Since the drum pads surface is bigger than the disc pad, the braking distance is short, it is a more ideal situation for heavy vehicles. However, when they get hot, it becomes difficult for them to cool down because they are in the drum, when they get too hot, it becomes difficult to hold the brake and the braking distance becomes longer. In addition, dust, soil, pieces of stone, gravel can enter the drum and spoil the brake pad.
    However, there is no such problem as the disc pad is completely exposed. Again, since the disc pad runs open, it takes a shorter time to cool down.
