Jurid brake discs: excellent quality from a global market leader
Continuously, the automotive industry has to meet higher demands in the construction of modern cars. This particularly applies to safety-relevant components. Consequently, the brake system is always subject to new developments with respect to the composition of material and technology to establish an optimal symbiosis of safety and driving comfort. The company Jurid from Glinde near Hamburg in Germany counts as one of the leading brake technology manufacturers. Brake discs from Jurid are now installed in all kinds of vehicles worldwide. As a specialist in friction technology the manufacturer has developed products of the highest material and technical standard.
Innovative technology as a result of ongoing research
Jurid brake discs are a result of impressive technological innovation, a hallmark of this market leader for more than 100 years. The safe and reliable functioning of the Jurid discs is the result of ongoing research in the company's internal laboratoria and the basis of its reputation as global leading supplier of OEM-quality products to the international automotive industry. Professional competence and focusing on the future has made an impression on the German Institute of Material Research: in 1977 the company was granted a so-called development mandate. Just a few years later, Jurid introduced a series of asbestos-free brake pads. The brake disc function is known: the driver stepping on the brake pedal causes the brake pads to press against the disc. The pressure is enhanced by brake power assistance. When the brake pads, mounted on the brake caliper piston, press against the disc, the car loses speed which can ultimately be reduced until the car halts.
Efficient brake technology with environmental aspects
During this procedure, the mechanical energy is partially converted into heat energy, which can get rather high and therefore has to be diverted outwards. Jurid brake discs perform all these tasks reliably. The renowned company continues to focus on environmental aspects. An example: Jurid has virtually abandoned the use of copper in its production of brake components and systems. Costs for OEM-quality brake discs from Jurid are relatively modest, lying between £45 and £110, depending on car model and type of brake disc.
