Valeo First Car Brake Pads

Valeo First Brake Pads

What are Brake Pads?

The Brake Pad uses the friction between two materials to convert kinetic energy into heat and thus reduce the wheel’s speed until it comes to a complete stop. As it controls the vehicle’s deceleration, brakes are one of the most important safety devices on any vehicle. The brake pad structure is made of several layers, starting with the external layer of friction material all the way to the packing plate. The surface is treated to better absorb vibrations and reduce noise. 


Valeo First Brake Pads are the best choice for efficient, durable, and good-value car brake pads. Choose Valeo First for optimal braking quality, even in extreme conditions.

The First Brake range includes more than 600 products, such as brake pads, discs, drums, and shoes. The First range covers 89% of the car parc with 100% Valeo quality.
