How Long Will My Galvanized Brake Pads Last?

The life expectancy of standard brake pads is between 30,000 and 70,000 miles. As a result, most motorists must replace their brake pads at least once or twice throughout the lifetime of their vehicles. Furthermore, it puts motorists in danger if they drive a car with brake pads that do not have high-performance technology integrated into them.

For this reason, you need to upgrade your vehicle’s braking system to include galvanized brake pads. Then you could get anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000+ miles out of them before they need to get replaced. But some people can get even more time out of their galvanized brake pads with minimal maintenance.

Why Galvanized Brake Pads Last Longer

Galvanized brake pads last longer than traditional brake pads because they contain zinc-plated steel with superior resistance to rust and corrosion. They also have a much higher heat threshold, which significantly slows down wear and tear. The added zinc protection is why galvanized brake pads offer more robust resistance to rust, corrosion, and heat.

The best brake pads have quality construction. Thanks to the galvanized steel construction with premium friction materials, the stopping power of galvanized brake pads does not diminish throughout their lifespan. Instead, they will continue to offer fast and efficient braking to your vehicle for the next 50,000 to 100,000 miles. That is the high-performance quality you can expect from galvanized steel construction with premium friction materials.

The patented NRS technology is another reason galvanized brake pads last longer than standard brake pads. This revolutionary brake technology prevents the friction material from separating and loosening from the steel backing plate. Because of this, the brake pads provide safer and more secure stops for the vehicle.

Perfect for Electric or Hybrid Vehicles

Electric and hybrid vehicles put a lot of stress on their braking systems because they generally weigh more than standard gasoline vehicles. Robust braking power is needed to slow down heavier cars, which adds more wear and tear to the brake pads.

Galvanized brake pads are the best brake pads for electric and hybrid vehicles because they are specifically engineered for them. Their zinc-plated steel reduces the accumulation of corrosion and moisture often seen in electric cars with standard brake pads installed. Then you do not need to worry so much about premature brake failure occurring with your electric or hybrid vehicle.


Electric and hybrid vehicles use an electric motor to slow down, which gives some relief to the brake pads. But the longevity of galvanized brake pads can be primarily attributed to the zinc protection and NRS technology. You will not find this combination of protections in most other brake pads on the market.

NRS Brake Pads is known for offering durable and high-quality brake pads at affordable prices. We want to make it easier for hybrid and electric vehicle owners to find brake pads superior to the standard ceramic, metallic, and organic brake pads on the market.
