Heavy duty endurance material
Applications - Touring car, GT, single seat
Average friction coefficient 0.46 over working
temperature range of 200°-700°C
Very kind to discs
All of the pad back-plates are manufactured from high tensile steel meaning minimum distortion
when subjected to the high clamping forces common in motorsport use.
Pads are manufactured to maintain high tolerances on the pad and back-plate dimensions including :
flatness , parallelism and overall thickness.
This results in a rapid and uniform transmission of pressure from the brake system to the pads.
Unlike many competitive products all Ferodo Racing brake pads incorporate a thermal under-layer
between the backing-plate and the friction material.
This reduces the brake caliper’s operating temperature by up to 80 deg C and significantly reduces
the risk of boiling the brake fluid which causes a “spongy” feeling in the pedal.
Unlike many competitive products Ferodo pads are kind on brake discs.
Ferodo pads are developed to optimize both the pad and disc life. Our philosophy is not to increase
pad life with the casualty of excessive disc wear.
All Ferodo Racing brake pads are engineered to perform with a relatively constant coefficient of friction
(mu) across a wide range of temperatures , pressures and vehicle speeds.
This results in a consistent brake feel for the driver meaning that the braking torque is a linear response
to pedal pressure.
