PFC brake pad compounds (highest bite & torque descending)
13 compound is a new generation of ultimate high bite, high friction. This has increased bite, modulation, superior disc conditioning and release characteristics for exceptional control. Ultra-smooth and great for tracks with high grip or high downforce cars. It is the ultimate combination of high bite and infinite control. Typical applications: Ideal use for sprint and severe applications. Heavy, fast cars or high downforce cars where bite at first third of the stop is desired. 13’s wear is on a par with PFC’s legendary 01 compound. It will operate at higher temperatures if called to as it has a very high threshold for fade resistance. 13 has shown, of all the high bite, high torque pads in the market, to have one of the lowest taper wear in a properly-designed race caliper.
11 compound is a new generation sprint and medium distance friction – the ultimate in control, with superior disc conditioning. Developed from 01 compound with improved bite, modulation, and release characteristics. It is ultra smooth and developed to reduce wheel locking at the end of a stop. Brake with confidence—brake with ultimate control and modulation. Typical applications: Ideal use for medium-low grip venues where control and modulation is at a premium. Racing venues where ABS systems is used. .11 can be used in a large spectrum of temperature ranges. 11’s wear is on a par with PFC’s legendary 01 compound. Virtually zero taper wear when raced in a properly designed race caliper.
08 compound is one of PFC’s newest and has gained immediate favour in extended Endurance Sportscar, and GT racing due to its performance in applications where smooth initial bite is a must. 08 has a slight friction rise with temperature, excellent release and modulation characteristics. Very low disc wear, similar to 01. Despite its considerable performance, 08 has the lowest wear rate of all PFC compounds and can easily match the wear characteristics of the other competitor’s materials but with much higher bite.
12 compound is a new generation endurance friction – excellent bite with 24 hour durability in its DNA and superior disc conditioning. Developed from 08 compound with improved wear, modulation, and release characteristics. It is the ultimate in wear. The PFC .12 compound won its debut race – overall winner in the 2013 Daytona 24 Hours. There’s new endurance winner in the PFC arsenal. Typical applications: Ideal use for endurance and when long wear is at a premium. Racing venues where ABS systems is used. .12’s wear is at its optimum when disc temperature paints show 450-500°C operating temperatures but will operate at higher temperatures if called to. Virtually zero taper wear when raced in a properly-designed race caliper.
Z-Rated .10/.11/.19/.38 This compound has been designed for fast road / trackday applications. It gives more stopping power and increased fade resistance over the OE materials but retains the good qualities or the road pad i.e., low dusting and noise along with low wear rate.
• High performance compound, gained through competition pad developments
• Compound designed for low dusting qualities
• Several built in noise suppression technologies
• Excellent disc conditioning, giving even transfer layer on disc to reduce uneven pad deposits.
