What does excellence sound like?
For our ‘Noise Vibration Harshness’ team, it’s as quiet as possible to achieve the ultimate in braking comfort. For electrical vehicles, quieter braking is even more essential.

“Brake pads are important for the safety of all road users and will still be a factor for car drivers in 2030 and 2040.”
Interview with a Friction Expert: Marco Loth
“In the future workshops will no longer replace a brake pad because it is worn down to a millimetre, but because of corrosion.”
