Brembo Discs

SPORT LINE
Reliable on the road, superior on the track.
The discs of the Brembo Sport range are ideal for enthusiasts who use their vehicles for both normal road use and more performance-oriented driving. With their advanced characteristics, these discs combine the advantages in terms of durability of the best street discs with superior performance suitable for moderate track use.

More flexibility and durability, at all temperatures.
For greater versatility and to increase their ability to withstand extreme stress, Brembo Sport brake discs are made from high-carbon cast iron for improved thermal and mechanical resistance. They also feature exclusive pillar venting technology, which improves cooling capacity and increases resistance to cracking caused by thermal shock by over 40%. Cross-drilled and slotted finishes are designed and executed with meticulous precision. These holes or slots in the braking surface help dissipate heat and eliminate brake dust and gases.
Every Brembo product is designed in relation to the specific performance requisites. The discs of the Sport range are specifically designed to minimise thermal distortion and disc warping even in the most severe operating conditions. As a result, they ensure outstanding braking power in both everyday traffic and the most extreme high performance driving, yet are easily accessible to all enthusiasts.

Immediate, consistent braking in all conditions
The unique cross-drilled or slotted finish is another exclusive Brembo feature which improves braking consistency by dissipating the heat generated and gas released as the pads come into contact with the discs, keeping the pad surface both cool and clean. Both cross drilling and slots interrupt the water film forming when driving in the wet for improved brake response. This effect is most evident with cross-drilled discs, due to the different solid/hollow ratio of the surface and the possibility for water to flow through the ventilation holes.

Eye-catching looks and total compatibility.
All the discs of the Sport range are zinc plated, which improves corrosion resistance and also gives the car a more aggressive look.
In spite of their exclusive characteristics, the Brembo Sport discs are the same size as the original equipment components, are fully compatible with the standard calipers, wheels and other components of the vehicle, and are also simple to install. However, all high performance Brembo discs are more durable and offer greater comfort if used in conjunction with the appropriate Brembo pads.

 

Pagid Brake Pads

PAGID Motorsport are a member of the TMD friction group of companies, Bremsen Technik GmbH (BT) is the worldwide distributor of Pagid sport and Racing brake pads. Brake Technology of America is the U.S. counterpart of this highly-respected company with North American distribution, customer support, and marketing. CBP offer sales and technical support exclusively within the UK and Ireland markets.

BT compiles research and development at the track together with manufacturers and race teams and provides this information to the development engineers at Pagid. In turn, Pagid develops different varieties of friction compounds in its laboratories, does dynamometer-testing, and produces Racing and Sport pads. BT then distributes the entire line of Pagid brake pads out to customers worldwide.

Pagid pads are designed to produce the highest possible performance levels over a wide range of operating conditions. Pagid pads are produced in a total of seven different material formulations - each one, the product of thousands of hours of testing and development work.

Pagid brake pads are available to fit many of the popular racing caliper applications and also may be fitted as an upgrade to many standard calipers for high performance cars.

In addition Pagid brake pads are fitted as original equipment to some of the most prestigious and powerful production cars in the world including Porsche and Ferrari.

With facilities in Rossbach and Essen in Germany, Pagid is one of only a small number of companies capable of developing and manufacturing brake friction solutions for use in the premier motorsport competitions including WRC, Formula 3, Endurance Racing, NASCAR, Cart Series, Touring Cars and Porsche Super Cup.

 

Pagid Fitting Instructions, 

The new brake pads must move freely in their guides. If necessary remove paint from the contact faces. Delayed release and taper wear can occur if pads do not have enough clearance.

The outer radius of the friction material must align with the brake disc’s outer radius. Especially with custom made uprights (knuckles) or custom made caliper mounting brackets very often pads do not align properly with the brake disc. It is advisable to place a note at the steering wheel to let the driver know new pads had been installed.

Never lay hot pads up side down i.e. with the friction material onto the ground unless you are throwing them away anyway. Asphalt, rubber, oil etc. can melt into the friction material.

If pads do not get bedded properly and/or used to hard right out of the box will likely lead to pad glazing. Pad glazing is a condition where the resins in the pad crystallize on both, the pad friction surface and the brake disc surface, resulting in poor stopping performance, brake judder and vibrations.

Also rapidly escaping volatile elements and moisture from the resin would seek an immediate escape route out of the friction compound, creating small fractures that would lead shortly to cracking and chunking.

How Do I Bed In PAGID RACING BRAKE PADS?

Why bedding?

To transfer a layer of friction material onto the brake disc faces to achieve maximum performance.

To stabilize compressible materials to avoid a spongy pedal.

To boil off volatile elements in the friction compound in order to have the initial ‘green’ fading during bedding and not during the race.

To align the pad surface with the brake disc surface to have full contact.

If pads do not get bedded properly and / or used too hard right out of the box will likely lead to pad glazing. Pad glazing is a condition where the resins in the pad crystallize on both, the pad friction surface and the brake disc surface, resulting in poor stopping performance, brake judder and vibrations.

Also rapidly escaping volatile elements and moisture from the resin would seek an immediate escape route out of the friction compound, creating small fissures that would lead shortly to cracking and chunking.

1. BASIC BEDDING IN

To initiate some heat in the brake discs and pads.

4 to 6 stops with medium brake pressure from approximately 150 km/h (90 MPH) to approximately 80 km/h (50 MPH).

Distance between each brake stop approximately 300 - 400 meters (300 to 400 yards).

The pads should not reach temperatures above 400° Centigrade (550° Fahrenheit).

No dragging!

Blocking of the air ducts might be helpful to reach appropriate temperatures quicker.

2. IMMEDIATELY AFTER BASIC BEDDING IN AT HIGH SPEED

Simulating race conditions

One stop with medium to heavy brake pressure, without allowing brakes to lock from approximately 180 km/h (110 MPH) to approximately 80 km/h (50 MPH).

No dragging!

Recovery stops with light brake pressure 3 to 4 times (Cleaning procedure).

Repeat the high-speed stops including recovery stops 2 to 3 times.

Allow a cool-off distance of approximately 500 m (500 yards) between high-speed stops.

BRAKE DISCS

If possible, pads should be bedded on used but NOT worn out brake discs.

Pagid brake pad material can be used either on solid, grooved or cross-drilled discs.

For disc bedding please refer to the disc manufacturers’ own instruction.

MOUNTING NEW PADS ON USED DISCS

Edges of pad surface should be filed roughly to 45 degrees to ensure that the pad carries fully and evenly and is not touching the edge of the disc.

Do not use discs, which are pre-bedded, or have been used with friction material other than PAGID.
