Toronto, Ont. – NRS Brakes has added re-engineered galvanized brake pad offerings for various light duty and medium duty HINO Trucks.

“NRS Brakes are a natural fit for HINO as their NRS (“SHARK Metal”) attachment between galvanized steel and friction material are the ideal solution for the high heat associated with this large vehicle application,” said Montu Khokhar CEO of NRS Brakes.

Features and Benefits:

  • NuLok tabbed shim technology resulting in no shim migration and help reduce noise during braking
  • Full friction” featuring no slots or chamfers maximizing pad to rotor contact area
  • Galvanized steel backing plates ensuring backing plate will survive the entire life cycle of the friction material
  • NRS shark metal technology to ensure your brake pads last the maximum life

The pads are re-engineered and manufactured in North America by NRS Brakes. The company use fully galvanized steel backing plates to ensure the backing plate and friction attachment will not deteriorate due to corrosion during the entire life of the friction.

NRS Shark Metal technology creates a mechanical attachment for the friction material using tiny hooks on the backing plate. The Hino-specific friction material design is also optimized by removing slots and chamfers to maximize pad contact area and stopping power. 

The pads feature the NRS Brakes performance guarantee covering the replacement costs if a fleet operator or shop experiences a brake pad failure as a result of delamination or separation. This exceeds the factory warranty offered by Hino. 

The NRS Brakes National Fleet Program supports fleets with access to North American brake engineers. The experts at the company can tailor the brake pads and inventory to an operator’s specific fleet and driver needs. The program offers preferred pricing, annual rebate (based on prior years sales) and size/volume incentives. For more information, visit
