EBC Brakes at Autosport International Show 2016

EBC Brakes attended the 2016 Autosport International Show, NEC in Birmingham. The show ran from 14th – 17th January 2016 and our helpful EBC automotive and business development team were there to chat about car brake products such as brake pads & discs. Visitors were able to learn more about our latest and most popular braking products including a new range of brake lines which will launch very soon.

The NEC Autosport International show always features the world’s most rare and expensive cars alongside every level of motor racing vehicle from Formula 1 to karting all under one roof.

This year on the EBC stand there were all the usual ever popular car disc rotors such as USR Slotted discs, GD Sport discs and BSD (Blade Sports Disc) designs. Also on display were the range of EBC car brake pads available for different styles of driving and race use including Ultimax 2 brake pads, Greenstuff brake pads, Redstuff Ceramic brake pads, Orangestuff brake pads, Yellowstuff brake pads, Bluestuff brake pads and Extra Duty brake pads, (See below for further product information).

The radically improved Ultimax2™ is a fully ECO friendly material that has ZERO sulphides. The Ultimax2 formula does not require shims for noise reduction and has more bite from cold. These brake pads also work well in hot dry climates too! As with the original Ultimax these too are fully R90 approved.

The latest version of Greenstuff Brake Pads is an intentionally softer brake compound designed to improve the pedal feel on lighter cars at low speeds. This results in a medium dust material with good lifetime and minimal rotor wear.

Redstuff Ceramic Brake Pads is a harder compound which takes longer to fully bed in to achieve the highest levels of performance during which time the odd brake noise may be heard when starting from cold in damp conditions at walking speed. One press of the pedal will clear the rotor of any dampness and this leaves EBC Redstuff Ceramic as a pad that inspires confidence in all car users. The motto is be patient to give the pads a full chance to bed down properly.

Yellowstuff – 4000 “R” Series – Full Race Pad
EBC Yellowstuff brake pads are ultra high friction brake pads for race, trackday and street use, race drivers in particular love them because they are made from an aramid fibre compound. These pads are ideal for street and track driving as they don’t require a warm up but get even stronger under hard driving.

Orangestuff Brake Pads

EBC Orangestuff brake pads have a longer wear life by up to 40-60% and a very effective initial bite. Another advantage of these unique brake pads is that they offer better fade resistance on rotors even when the disc temperatures are high and the discs glow red.

EBC Bluestuff Brake Pads are perfect for racing all sorts of cars and automotive sports in general as they are extremely high in friction and made from NDX formula material that is specifically designed for aggressive driving conditions such as those found on hard surfaced race tracks. When twinned with specific quality aftermarket calipers Bluestuff brake pad NDX formula has the most efficient success rate. Read more about Bluestuff Brake Pads here!

EBC Extra Duty Light Truck, Jeep and SUV brake pads

The EBC Extra Duty brake pads for light Truck, Jeep and SUV provide better stopping power, zero noise and longer life span. Using new ECO friendly technology during the manufacturing process, the EFI team have created an unusually high friction brake pad material that is ideal for street use with strong brake effect when braking from cold.

EBC Ultimax Slotted  USR Brake Rotors

EBC Ultimax Slotted USR Brake Rotors are manufactured using premium disc blanks. These rotors benefit from quiet running which is all down to the narrower multi-slot design and the progressive angle at which the slots are machined. This has the benefit of removing dirt, gas, water and debris and having the advantage of parallel pad wear.

EBC GD Series Brake Rotors

EBC GD Series brake disc rotors are now available in a “thermic black” and NITROTHERM™ finish and feature wide aperture slots that draw cool air under the brake pad and rotor interface which help cool the temperature of the brake pad contact that can easily and often shoot up to well over 1000 degrees during heavy braking and can cause brake fade or loss of brake effect – the cool effective use of the slots helps prevent this.

BSD (Blade Sports Disc)

BSD (Blade Sports Discs) are made from a unique material known as “discalloy” for front and rear fitments. The blade slot design is specially crafted to remove hot gases in an efficient way to help keep brake pads cooler and flatter. The multiple slots overlap to reduce the brake wind sound.
