Raybestos Advanced Technology disc brake pads utilize top quality formulations to defeat noise, dust and brake fade while delivering increased stopping power. Enjoy confident pedal feel from the very first stop.
Raybestos brand Advanced Technology Police brake pads are designed specifically for police patrol and pursuit applications. These Police pads utilize special materials to provide exceptional stopping power, temperature stability and to provide "Quiet on Arrival" (QOA®) noise-free braking performance. This exceptional product is the brand of choice as specified by numerous police agencies throughout North America. Today’s brake designs have advanced from hardware attached to the pad itself, to designs that interface between caliper and bracket. These (abutment style) clips are critical to proper operation and quiet performance. These types of components should be replaced during every brake service. Knowing their importance, we’ve included abutment hardware with all Advanced Technology Police brake pad sets. But we didn’t stop there. All police pads sets feature rubber-coated abutment clips to maximize noise suppression.

The world’s first brake pad to deliver the best attributes of ceramic and semi-metallic all in one pad. Element3 supports optimal performance, improves pad wear and durability, and increases stopping power during aggressive braking.
Innovation - Enhanced Hybrid Technology combines the best attributes of ceramic and semi-metallic in one pad
Performance - Formulated for long life, no noise, reduced dust, and better wear and durability
Stopping Power - Engineered for maximum control in aggressive stopping situations
Raybestos Professional Grade OE-Matched friction materials match the original formulation for less noise and a smooth quiet ride. The semi-metallic material is enhanced by premium noise-dampening shims and OE-or-better slots and chamfers.
Raybestos Professional Grade Ceramic friction materials match or improve on the OE ceramic formulation for operation that’s clean, quiet and smooth. The ceramic material is low-dusting, strong and silent; delivers improved pedal feel and enhanced responsiveness.
Raybestos Service Grade friction provides an affordable, quality line of friction that satisfies the coverage needs of older vehicles and budget-conscious customers.
Raybestos Adavanced Technology rotors offer the best solution for noise-prone applications. Vehicle specific cooling vane configurations and application specific iron and combine to dampen noise and improve responsiveness for braking that’s super smooth and ultra quiet.
Law Enforcement agencies demand performance, stealth and dependability in the patrol vehicles they operate on city and streets. With that in mind, Raybestos brand "Quiet on Arrival" (QOA ® ) Advanced Technology ® rotors are engineered for superior performance and deliver unmatched stopping power cooling properties ad noise control.
Superior Metallurgy. Dedicated engineers have improved upon the "one metallurgy fits all" theory. QOA Technology rotors are cast from damped iron – an alloy that is metallurgically formulated to disrupt vibration and suppress noise ensuring consistent and quiet arrivals every time.
Enhanced Vane Configuration. Specifically designed for increased air flow throughout the rotor, the QOA rotor maintains lower temperatures with a vane configuration no other competitive rotor in the market can match.
Optimized Weight. When police vehicles make sudden high-speed stops, weight distribution and temperatures are inherently high on the front wheels. Recent fleet testing has reveled a replacement ratio of 3:1 between front and rear rotor. Raybestos QOA Advanced Technology rotors used on both the front and the rear provide outstanding braking characteristics and performance whether on patrol or in pursuit.
Coat Armor. Subjected to environmental conditions such as heat, cold, ice, snow and rain, durability is a critical aspect of police rotors. This polymer binding coating has special armor-type shielding characteristics that provide significantly greater protection against the elements.

The latest generation of hub units has a suspension mounting flange machined onto the outer shell with integral raceways, and a brake/wheel mounting flange with integral raceways machined onto the inner cone, making it even simpler to install and providing a degree of precision previously unattainable. Again, these units are pre-lubricated with an integral lifetime seal. They require no adjustment, are maintenance free, self contained and preloaded. Many of these units contain an integral ABS sensor.
The second evolutionary step adds a flange to the outer shell of the bearing, eliminating the need for a separate hub. The flange cup contains integral raceways, and some of the units include ABS sensors as well. The brake and wheel mount directly to the flange, greatly simplifying installation. Like Gen I, these units are pre-lubricated with an integral lifetime seal. They require no adjustment, are maintenance free, self contained and preloaded to assure long life.
The first step in hub development consistes of a double row angular contact ball bearing set that provides for lateral as well as vertical loads. These units are pre-lubricated with an integral lifetime seal. They require no adjustment, are maintenance free and self contained. One major benefit of this design is that it required no preloading at installation. While proper preloading could lengthen a bearing’s life, impropely done preloading (due to the difficulty of measuring end play precisely), could just as easily shorten it.

What is brake drag?
Brake drag is unwanted contact between the friction material and the braking surface when the brakes are not being engaged. Brake drag can cause:
How it works
The springs provide positive pressure to the brake friction… keeping it separated from the braking surface when the brakes are not applied. This applied pressure is light enough that it has no effect on the braking system when the brakes are applied.
