Bedding-in, also known as “Breaking-in” helps to improve maximum braking performance. This process is extremely important for brake pads and rotors/discs to be bedded in.
Bedding in brake pads or new discs is a complicated process that must be performed correctly to ensure that your new braking products perform to their fullest potential.
The main purpose of the bedding in process is to raise the temperature of the brake pad and disc to allow an even transfer layer of the new brake pad material to transfer onto the brake disc surface. This will allow better performance and minimizing squeal and vibration, increasing the lifespan of both brake pads and discs.
