What does the Coefficient of Friction regarding to Brake pads refer to? Coefficient of friction is a numerical representation of the amount of friction force a brake pad exerts. The coefficient of friction ratings are given as a range that the pad exhibits. The higher the number, the higher the force exerted. These numbers also equate to what is known as “initial bite.” The smaller the range is for the coefficient of friction the more consistent, stable and safe the brake pad is.
