Controlling car brake fade through driving technique
Brake fade and rotor warping can be reduced through proper braking technique; when running down a long downgrade that would require braking simply select a lower gear (for automatic transmissions this may necessitate a brief application of the throttle after selecting the gear).
Also, periodic, rather than continuous application of the brakes will allow them to cool between applications.
Continuous light application of the brakes can be particularly destructive in both wear and adding heat to the brake system.
Finally, new brakes are prone to a phenomenon termed "green fade", where resin on the brake pad evaporates at the high temperatures involved in heavy braking and the resulting pressurised gas forces the brake lining away from the disk, reducing friction
