This material is a Kevlar® fibre based brake compound enhanced with ceramic particles. Being a hard wearing pad, bed-in times can be as long as 1000 miles and drivers must be patient until the pad takes up the shape of their disc. This is a truly impressive fast road pad for repeated heavy braking. It emits far less dust than semi-metallic pads and has been proven to stop a passenger car 13 metres quicker than OEM pads from 100mph/160kph. Features EBC Brake-In surface coating which conditions disc surface and accelerates pad bed-in. Nominal friction coefficient 0.5 with approx. 50% dust reduction.
Most EBC Red Ceramic pads are approved to ECE R90 brake safety regulation.
