Performance Friction Brake Pads are superior because:
PFC Brake pads are Carbon Metallic.
The advantages of running a Carbon Metallic pad for Motorcyclesare mainly the following:
·The friction is very stable and consistent with the temperature
·It has a higher fading temp as opposed to a Sintered pad
·It is not as aggressive on the rotors as a Sintered pad is and as a result the rotor has a longer durability and functionality. It doesn’t warp the rotors.
·It runs cooler due to a new technology pad compound. Plus, it has higher torque so the time spent on the brakes is shorter
·The brake feel is really smooth and it is great for brake power modulation
·It’s got a better release than a Sintered pad. This is due in part because the caliper runs cooler and the inboard side doesn’t flex as much.
·The pad wear is very limited and it doesn’t show any wear tapering.
Great value as well as Great Performance. The clear choice in pads!
The difference in compounds is more a measure of the characteristics of that compound, rather than a measure of its softness or hardness.
Specifically developed to cope with stainless steel discs. This compound is the most widely used for bikes and can be used on both stainless and iron discs. Provides excellent initial bite that is not too aggressive, good controllability, virtually fade free, excellent wear rate, very good release. 95 compound is the choice of champions.
Higher bite, immediate powerful braking
powerful as 05 , progressive as 95
How to understand PFC part code, for example WWWW.XX.YY.ZZ
WWWW >>> is the pad shape
XX >>> is the compound
YY >>> is the thickness
ZZ >>> is the number of pads in a single box
