Report Digest

Brake Shims Market: Overview

Brake shims are thin rubber adhesive or metal pads which are fitted between the brake caliper and the brake pad to correct slight differences that sometimes lead to noise. In majority of the newer automotive, the brake shims are primarily used to keep any rattles to a minimum and to control the excess noise, caused by disc for stopping movement of wheel hub.

Brake shims are used in disc brake systems in all vehicles including two wheelers, passenger cars and commercial vehicles. Installation of brake shims can be done on front side or rear side both in a wheel hub. Brake pads are also available in the market that come with adhesive brake pad shims in which brake shims are required to stick on the backing plate and doesn’t require use of lubrication. Furthermore, there are also titanium brake shims which perform as an improved thermal barrier. These reflect more heat than regular shims hence are used only for track use.

The increasing demand for disc braking systems for improved safety and enhanced driving experience is expected to ascend the demand for brake shims during the forecast period.
