Fade usually occurs due to rough usage of brakes (pressing them hard and repeatedly) during a short span of time. To cure this “Fade” problem good ventilation of the brake is required, that’s why a large number of vehicles have ventilated disc brakes on the front wheels. Brake fade usually occurs to hard used performance cars but due to recent developments Maruti Suzuki included ventilated discs on the upgraded the Esteem’s model, a couple of years back, to the counter problems of fade associated with the earlier solid discs. Brake fade can be a factor in any vehicle that comprises of a friction braking system (that is every vehicle) per se cars, trucks, motorcycles, airplanes, and bicycles. Brake fade can either be mechanical fade, friction fade, or fluid fade. Brake fade usually occurs during high performance drives or during a steep descent. It is more common in drum brakes than disc due to its configuration. It can be reduced, significantly, by appropriate methods and materials design and selection, as well as proper cooling. The reduction of brake fade can be achieved at the “knee – point” of the temperature – friction curve and when gas builds up between disc and pad. Brake fade and rotor wrapping can also be reduced through proper braking technique like when travelling down a long downgrade brakes should be applied at lower gears (for automatic transmissions this may necessitate a brief application of the throttle after selecting the gear).
