So pay attention to some tips the HIPPER FREIOS, the largest manufacturer of brake discs of Latin America brought in the April edition of the journal Brazil Workshop for you.


During the braking process of an automobile, the friction components are subjected to high temperature fluctuations and mechanical stress, Therefore the durability of these components depends exclusively on the conditions of use,  that is why, be alert to the brake system in General and not only the obvious, pads and disks.


One of the tips of the HIPPER FREIOS is always check the minimum thickness of the discs when periodic making the inspection or changing the pads. Research in the field identify which disks are replaced every two exchanges. With the aid of a calibrated measuring instrument, as a caliper or micrometer, you will have an accurate reading of the disc thickness (measure the discs always in the area of contact of the pads and not at the ends, where the Burr of the material).


HIPPER FREIOS have record on each disc the minimum thickness, compare and check if it is time to make the change.

If the cube has a warping more than 0, 05 mm, must be replaced, because that change will reflect twice as large on the disks, generating trepidation on the pedal at the time of braking.
