Measure Productivity in Seconds, Not Minutes: The V-PadV Friction Pads

In today’s competitive marketplace maximum machine productivity is essential.  Snap out, Snap In, Done–Pads Changed. That is all it takes to change every pad on your brake. In only seconds with zero tools your pads are changed and your machine is back up and running. It’s just that simple.

Most applications require a time e consuming process to change brake pads. That takes up valuable time that your machines could be running and generating profits. Save time with the V Pad.

The savings exponentially increase when factoring in the amount of pads on your brake, the amount of brakes in your organization, and how often you are required to change brake pads.  The V-Pad is created from the same materials as other Montalvo brake pads meaning you get the same high quality, long lasting, high performance brake pads you require, while exponentially increasing convenience.

Already built into Montalvo’s V-Brake the V-Pad can also be retrofitted into Montalvo Standard, HP, & HPS Brakes.
