Noise when braking is high-frequency oscillations that you can hear. Imagine that you spend the wet finger on the rim of the glass of water. Glass resonates, and sound occurs. The oscillations arise as a result of friction caused by your finger conducted by the rod of the glass. This, in turn, resonates inside a glass containing water, and therefore sound occurs.

In addition, the principle arise noise and vibrations created by friction between brake pads and discs. These oscillations are transmitted to brake calipers, with the result that the entire brake system resonates, producing unpleasant noise.

Elimination of noise

There are many factors that need to be taken into account to suppress noise and vibration when braking. These include the quality of materials, form, conditions of movement, speed and temperature during braking.

Noise often arises due to vibration pads with a brake disc, where there is no dense contact or there is a malfunction in plates, pins or springs that can lose their properties and create sound waves. These sound waves can be either you-skin-fast, which you can hear or low-frequency you can feel.

Maintenance of the brake system

When servicing and replacing the components of the brake system, there are several important details that need to be checked, both to ensure proper operation and to minimize undesirable braking noise. This includes verification of the state of brake calipers and guide pads, as well as other components to determine Wear, damage or corrosion. When installing new brake pads, make sure that all corrosion from the reference points of the pads and calipers is removed, as well as use new components. Lubricate the reference points of the block of ceramic paste to ensure the free stroke of the pad and efficient braking. Avoid using copper lubrication, as this may affect the operation of ABS or cause galvanic corrosion, which in turn can cause the jamming of the pads and the appearance of foreign noise.

If the brake discs have loops or a high edge, they also need to be replaced, since rough surfaces can cause extraneous noise. In addition, make sure that the adjacent surface of the hub is clean, and check the lateral beaging using the indicator. Then compare readings with automaker tolerances and replace faulty components if necessary. Before replacing the brake discs, it is important to clean the surface of the hub, otherwise there may be vibration when braking. To ensure comfortable, efficient and secure braking conditions, make sure that you use high-quality components and components of the brake system.
