QuietGlide Brake Pad Abutment Clips
The Best Brake Clips on the Market
QuietGlide brake pad abutment clips are made of stainless steel for overall corrosion-free performance and are coated on one side with PTFE to reduce drag and an exclusive vulcanized rubber compound on the other to reduce noise. These innovations virtually eliminate brake noise—the #1 customer complaint—and can reduce drag so the vehicle gets better mileage.
Better Mileage and Longer Pad Life
Using Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) on one side of the brake clip allows the pads to slide more freely. As a result, QuietGlide clips can reduce drag and wear on the pads and rotors, causing less friction and improved fuel efficiency. They also extend the life of the pads and improve the braking experience by reducing noise and improving pedal feel.
Brake noise is the #1 customer complaint and reason for comebacks, so it literally pays to reduce noise. At an independent, third-party automotive lab, IBI’s QuietGlide Brake Clips consistently eliminated brake noise in cars and reduced it 47% in trucks (Click here to see the full test results).
Superior Manufacturing Quality
The first step in making QuietGlide Brake Clips is putting the stainless steel through a vigorous cleaning process. Next, a bonding agent is applied to one side of the stainless steel and Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is applied to the other side in a coating line. The clip than goes to a Double Belt Press Line where the rubber is vulcanized to the stainless steel. The vulcanization process includes an elaborate array of pressure and temperature in a process called Crosslink, allowing the metal and rubber to be intertwined in a bond that will not separate.
