PAGID RACING FRICTION COMPOUNDS

PAGID Racing compounds have a very high content of non-ferrous (ceramic) materials. The difference to competitor’s metallic compounds is the superior thermal insulation and higher heat resistance combined with low heat conductivity, reducing heat transfer to the caliper (up to a massive 60 °C) preventing boiling of the fluid.

All PAGID Racing compounds are designed to minimize wear of the pad-rotor system, while maintaining optimum bite, brake modulation and pedal feel. All friction compounds meet or surpass all current ecological standards of the automotive industry.

PAGID RACING STEEL BACKING PLATE DESIGN

PAGID RACING STEEL BACKING PLATE DESIGN

PAGID Racing employs dual retention systems, with an adhesive bond and a patented mechanical system. The mechanical system consists of brass studs that are welded directly to the backplate to ensure a positive retention between pad compound and the backplate. These brass studs are softer than the brake disc (rotor) and wear away as the pad is consumed causing no damage to the disc.

  • UNIQUE AND PATENTED SYSTEM
  • FRICTION MATERIAL IS FIXED TO THE BACKPLATE
  • NO DELAMINATION FROM THE STEEL BACKING PLATE
  • HIGH TECH AND INNOVATION FOR YOUR VEHICLE

BEDDING

WHY BEDDING?

To align the pad surface with the brake disc (rotor) surface and ensure full contact.

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

To burn out the volatile elements in the friction compound in order to have the initial (green) fade occur during bedding and not during the race.

If pads are not bedded properly according to the above mentioned sequence, the brake system will not achieve its maximum friction performance, wear behavior and pedal feel. Improper bedding can also lead to judder and vibration.
Unlike discs, pads do not require cooling down post-bedding for optimal performance/longevity.

Using pre bedded parts is always recommended, as they are run in a computer-controlled environment and can therefore deliver perfect performance for a very reasonable cost. Keep in mind every km driving a race car is expensive!
