NUCAP Industries, a major supplier of disc brake backing plates, shims and brake assembly accessories, has introduced a new mechanically-attached shim product line called NU-LOK, which out-performs the current industry-standard glued/riveted aftermarket shims.
The NU-LOK shim product line is the result of two years of research in NUCAP’s dedicated R&D Center for Brake Pad Noise Solutions, allowing the company to develop a newer, safer and better performing type of shim. Testing has shown that the NU-LOK design outperforms standard aftermarket shims in every area, improving anti-noise performance by factors as high as 300 percent and retaining its physical integrity (shape, attachment, fit, function) right to the end of the brake pad’s duty cycle. The use of NU-LOK by leading friction companies is rapidly growing beyond its original use in problem/European/Japanese references and is now available across entire product lines.
