Paste prevents undesirable noise during brake operation

Paste prevents undesirable noise during brake operation
  Annoying squeaking noises may occur when applying the brake in a car, even if all components are in perfect condition. Such noises are often generated in the brake pad guides, where the base plates of the pads are subject to very high loads and have to slide short distances. Klüber Lubrication has developed its new Klüberpaste HM 96-402 to match this kind of application.
