Other features including slotted and chamfer edged brake pads, which are featured in most but not all brake pads. Slots in the brake pads have two jobs. The first is to help clean the surface of the brake rotor. Secondly, they help gas to escape between the pad and the rotor. By having more contact between your brake pad and rotor disc, the driver will be able to stop their car more effectively. Chamfered edges on brake pads will help reduce noise, and prevent lift of the brake pad. This can help save and extend the life of your brake pad and save you money down the road.
Debris like dirt, small rocks, or gas between the pad and rotor can cause a slow reaction when you press down on the brake pedal. Slots in the brake pad help clear and clean the surface of these materials and help gas escape faster. This will dramatically improve the responsive time between pedal feel and actual braking. *1[/one_fifth][one_fifth]
One of the key benefits of chamfered edges is that it prevents edge lifting. Edge lifting can be caused by the inconsistency of the brake contact surface. Through time a chip may give pressure to the edge of the pad and cause it to be lifted from the backing plate. This will then result in the continuous lifting of the rest of the friction surface or corrosion of the back plating. With chamfered edges this is scenario is greatly reduced, extending both the life of your brake pad and rotors, but also saving you money in the long run*1[/one_fifth][one_fifth]
Dual Rubber Shims
Eliminating brake noise is our top priority. Dual Rubber shim material, manufactured, and designed to produce one of today's best weapons to combat against brake noise. The result is having a shim that will absorb more vibrations, and in turn can reduce more brake noise.[/one_fifth][one_fifth]
This manufacturing technique used by KFE Brake Systems to ensure pressure and heat applied evenly to the material composition and back plate. Positive Molding allows an evenly distributed characteristic throughout the brake pad surface. The finished product results in a more predictable brake system with less brake fade.

This manufacturing process reduces the break in process, enhancing both your driving experience and road safety. All KFE Brake Pads go through this process which burns off much of the uncured agents. This then stabilizes the friction of coefficient and reduces noise causing agents. Without this process, a break-in or bed-in process is performed by doing several high speed accelerations and decelerations.[/one_fifth_last]
