How does temperature affect brake pad performance?

Generally the performance of the brake pad (friction force between the brake pad and disc) will reduce at high temperatures due to brake fade. The degree and occurrence of this fade will dependent on the quality of the brake pad. The driver of a vehicle will experience the drop off in performance because a higher force will be required to be applied to the brake pedal in order to maintain a constant rate of deceleration.
