‘Masters of stopping power’ EBC produce Armored vehicle brakes
Armored vehicles place higher demands on brakes and can be subject to brake fade and loss of braking due to the heavier loads involved. If using the original caliper system, it is highly recommended to upgrade the pads and discs to sport versions such as the EBC Bluestuff NDX range pads and GD series sport rotors.
EBC Bluestuff NDX grade is a high friction, high brake effect pad that is ideal for armored vehicle brakes. The friction level of the EBC Bluestuff pads is high and stays high through the braking cycle.
In their specialty materials division, EBC Brakes also produce sintered copper carbon alloy brake pads for military applications such as the Humvee and even UK built tanks and have been supplying military applications of these for years.
To perfect the braking system braided hoses should be added to protect rubber lines from fire and laceration damage and also to firm up the brake pressure due to reduce sponging of original rubber lines.
EBC brakes have also been tested in desert army applications of armored and heavily loaded military vehicles.
