Premium Brake Pads for Cars

Car Brake Pads

Brake pads are a critical safety device on any vehicle as they enable the vehicle to quickly come to a complete stop, even if travelling at speed. It is the most sensitive friction part in a braking system, situated between the constraints of the brake discs and the caliper piston.

Valeo provides 98% of the European carparc with solutions dedicated to the aftermarket. As a premium supplier in the automotive industry focused on quality and innovation, Valeo uses the best technologies for its premium brake pad range to achieve shorter braking distances, better resistance to fading, and optimal braking performance. 

Valeo used the best possible technologies for its premium brake pad range to offer the same, or sometimes superior, performance to OE products in braking distance, fading resistance, and optimal braking performance under all circumstances.

When a car brakes, the most critical safety element in a braking system is smaller than the surface of a hand. 

On this surface: 

  • The kinetic energy is transformed into heat, slowing down the vehicle until it comes to a complete stop.
  • All physical components must be controlled to ensure proper vehicle handling
  • All vibrations must be absorbed to avoid noise.

OE specifications back to basics: vehicle-specific designs must ensure maximum effectiveness.


For optimised fitting and braking effectiveness


100% pre-bedded pads 

  • All Valeo premium pads are pre-bedded on the production line to limit the fading effect. This step ensures complete braking effectiveness from the very first braking.



  • Redesigned packaging protects the integrity of pads until mounting. The modern, practical and compact packaging makes life easier for professionals and ensures optimised part identification thanks to larger labels.


Many accessories included in the box. 

  • Valeo car brake pads are easier to fit because there's no need to order additional parts.
