SRM – Sinter maxi scooter

These SRM brake pads were developed specifically for use in large scooters. The brakes do not require a running-in period and are immediately ready for use after installation. They last a long time, and provide you with a great control over the braking force. Not only that, but the braking power is actually good. These specific brake pads are mounted on a bronze coloured steel carrier plate.

The name gives it away: sintered metal, supplemented with a small amount of binder, is the main component of this type of brake pad. Sintering is the pressing together of ground, shredded metal, often copper, bronze or a mixture of these. This is done under high pressure, at high temperature. A solid mass, which forms the brake pad, is the final result. Mixed metals are well suited for wider applications and street use. Blocks to which carbon has been added - resistant to extreme temperatures - deliver better results in high-performance conditions such as those found on the race track. Sintered brake pads are not as soft as standard organic ones. More power at the brake lever is a logical consequence. The corrosive substance released during braking requires you to clean the rims of the motorcycle regularly. For intensive use, high braking demands or really performance-oriented conditions, sintered brake pads are recommended.
