The EBC Brakes Stand

This year the car disc brakes being showcased included the new High Carbon Blade disc specifically designed for performance driving and including such outstanding features as the use of double high carbon content which helps to improve thermal stability. This also reduces possible heat cracking, thermal brake judder, and brake noise by dampening vibrations. Also on display was the 3GD Sports brake disc which has been specifically designed for braking in all sorts of off road conditions that cope well with water, mud or sand and highly suitable for 4×4 vehicles.  The super silent USR Series slotted disc brake and the ever consistent in quality High Carbon brake disc.

Here are some more EBC brake product details:

EBC Blade Disc
EBC Brakes Blade Discs
New EBC Brakes Blade Sport Discs are 100% British made using  GG15HC Hi Silicone and Hi Carbon cast iron alloy which has many features and benefits.

EBC 3GD Sport Rotors

Slotted and drilled brake rotors for cooler brakes

Manufactured using premium disc blanks, EBC 3GD sport slotted and drilled brake rotors include unique wide aperture slots that actually draw cool air under the pad during heavy braking. This helps to reduce brake temperatures whilst also helping remove dirt, debris, dirt, dust and gasses created by heavy braking from the pad contact area.

EBC USR series discs

EBC USR Ultra quiet sport slotted brake rotors are manufactured using premium disc blanks.  The narrower multi slot design of the Ultimax sport rotor and the progressive angle at which the slots are machined creates a quiet running sport rotor that still has benefits of removing gas, dirt, water and debris and MAINTAINING parallel pad wear.

New: High Carbon Brake Discs
New to EBC Brakes is our British made range of High Carbon brake discs. What is the advantage of using High Carbon? Firstly most fast cars are actually BUILT with High Carbon cast Iron discs. This higher carbon material which includes silicon content has a more granular grain structure and is very good at resisting heat distortion and cracking under heavy use and thermal judder.
