Zero Failure Rate*

On over 1 BILLION units Worldwide!

The breakthrough of the development of a manufacturing process that creates a mechanical lock between the steel back plate and the friction material of the brake pad, increasing safety.

The PACE Award Winning NUCAP© Retention System (NRS™) patented technology is now the premiere Mechanical Attachment Technology in the world. Originally used on those platforms where extreme performance was the standard, NRS™ use has evolved to capture the full range of cost benefits that mechanical attachment brings to friction manufacturing.

NRS Safe™ products exclusively use the Nucap Retention System™, the most advanced mechanical attachment technology with a ZERO Failure Rate on over 1,000,000,000 units Worldwide.

Don't compromise on:

  • Safety


    NRS™ prevents edge lift, rust jacking, friction delamination or chunking and retains friction on the plate throughout the entire duty cycle

  • Performance


    Will not fail under extreme loads or corrosion

  • Recognition

The Technology

NRS™ is NUCAP© Industries’ patented process for the surface modification of disc brake backing plates, adding a consistent matrix of raised steel hooks that facilitate a mechanical bond between disc brake plate and friction materials. The NRS™ hooks provide mechanical bonding while exceeding industry requirements for heat, shear and environmental delamination protection.

"The Nucap Retention System is a compelling example of an innovative solution to an unsatisfactory but accepted process in the automotive industry."
