[Features ROAD series]
It is characterized by a high coefficient of friction and wear resistance that is stable under any operating conditions (from high to low temperatures), enabling excellent durability.
Sintered compound for front brakes.
It is characterized by a particularly high frictional efficiency in all operating conditions.
It has the highest braking performance in the road series.For sports driving or mainly winding driving, SA compound is recommended.
[The secret to safe braking is brake pads]
Brembo, the global leader in the brake industry, offers a wide range of high-performance brake pads that employ advanced technologies to improve the safety of braking systems.
By offering a wide range of compounds, from sintered to carbon ceramic, Brembo is able to meet the needs of all disciplines: racing, road, off-road, street and scooter.
The compounds normally used for brake pads can be classified into two systems: sintered metal and organic.
The choice of which compound to use is not solely determined by the intended use.
Different compounds of brake pads can be used for the same application.
■Sintered: SA, LA, SP, SX, SD, XS, GENUINE
A compound produced by compressing metal powder mixed with a lubricant or abrasive at high temperature.
It can be bonded to back plates of any shape without the addition of adhesives in the production process.
The performance of the metal powder is the decisive factor for braking power at high temperatures.
Lubricants help to stabilize the entire braking process and abrasives keep the brake discs clean.
■Carbon Ceramics: RC, CC, TT, GENUINE
It is mainly composed of resin binder, metal powder, lubricant, and abrasive.
The coefficient of friction is determined by the resin binder and metal powder, and the lubricant and abrasive perform the above functions.
■Selection of compound
Every brake pad has its own specific application.The choice of compound depends on the various situations that the brake pads will be dealing with.
For racing use, the brakes must perform at their best at high temperatures, while for street use, the brakes must be highly stable when applied at medium to low temperatures.
To check the Initial fitting of brake pad is a particularly important process for all compounds, and is particularly important for racing RC compounds.
Apply the brakes lightly several times with a short interval between the application of the brakes to complete the fitting of the brake pads.
At this time, do not try to force the temperature up by braking.
These generate the correct heating and cooling cycles necessary for the brake system to perform satisfactorily.
The bite time depends on the type of compound, but it is generally longer for organic compounds than for sintered metal compounds.
