Starline brake pads are made from top quality materials and their approval for use is preceded by a range of tests and laboratory trials – braking on the vehicle, examinations of friction and mechanical properties, and speed and pressure stability – during regular operation and under more demanding conditions. The pad surface is fi nished using scorching technology (the organic particles on the lining are scorched at a temperature of 900 ˚C in order to eliminate the risk of polishing the surface during bed-in and also to eliminate so-called gas planing). The brake disks are fully comparable to brand products from the point of view of their quality. They comply with all European standards. Permanent dimensional stability is maintained even during extreme loading. The surface fi nish on the discs ensures a maximum braking effect immediately aft er assembly.
