  • EBC medium dust fast street pad with 15% brake improvement
  • Capable of repeated heavy brake use without brake “Fall-Off”
  • Very minimal disc/rotor damage characteristics
  • Superb material for lighter model Asian and European sport compacts
  • ECE R 90 type approved for most cars
  • Features red “brake in’ surface coating for instant safe braking after install

Since EBC Brakes launched its sport range in 1997 EBC Greenstuff™ brake pads have sold well over
four million sets of performance automotive brakes all over the world and have become the
number one selling EBC sport pad.

It is essential to note that EBC offer three ranges of Greenstuff™ brake pads, engineered for each application.

  • Greenstuff™ 2000 series for sport compact and hot hatches
  • Greenstuff™ 6000 series for entry level truck and SUV upgrade
  • Greenstuff™ 7000 low dust Truck and SUV Brakes

Greenstuff™ has once again pushed the performance barriers of organic friction materials. The latest version of Greenstuff™ brake pads are a deliberately softer compound to improve pedal feel on lighter cars at lower speeds. This resulted in a medium dust material with good lifetime and minimal rotor wear.

Tests at the UK MIRA Motor Vehicle Research Institute have shown a version of Greenstuff™ to stop a car almost 20 feet quicker than original parts on a popular hot hatch braking from 60 MPH offering a huge 15% brake improvement.

Greenstuff™ 6000 series is regarded as a first level brake improvement over stock and can deliver up to 15% improvement in stopping power. However Greenstuff™ 6000 is not a hard and long lasting pad and drivers may find Greenstuff™ last less miles on light Trucks and SUV than stock units which in our opinion are designed primarily to pass the warranty period but 6000 are a good quality pad replacement with medium dusting and good brake effect.

Greenstuff™ 7000 series are a slightly harder pad than its 6000 series stable mate and designed to Reduce Dust and last slightly longer than the 6000 series. Again a great pad and a quality pad replacement for Truck and SUV (4 x 4).

When replacing brakes of any kind please remember how important brake safety is to your own well being and either have a professional mechanic install your new brakes or if you are a qualified mechanic use the EBC installation DVD as a guide in support of your vehicle owner’s manual.

The entire green range is approved to ECE R90 for highway use. For more details on ECE R90 (Regulation 90 brake safety standard) click here.

Greenstuff™ Series

Greenstuff™ – 2000 Series Brake Pads

EBC Greenstuff™ has a high initial brake effect and gives drivers confidence from first application of the brake pedal. There is no such thing as a no dust pad. The very nature of how a brake works requires that some dust be generated to avoid rotor vibration (shimmying). The EBC pad creates less dust and dust is more easily washed off than most. All pads create more dust as they are bedding in especially if rotors are worn. Nominal friction coefficient 0.55. For heavier faster cars we strongly recommend Redstuff which does offer much less dust.

Greenstuff™ – 6000 Series – 4×4 (SUV and Light Truck) Brake Pad

  • Upgrade pad for Light Truck and SUV improves brake effect 10-20%.
  • Medium dusting factor makes these cleaner pads than stock.
  • Capable of repeated heavy brake use without brake “Fall-Off”.
  • Very minimal disc/rotor damage characteristics.
  • Suitable for all light trucks, Jeep and SUV in highway use.
  • Superb brake control and pedal response full grade better than stock.
  • Minimal dusting features makes this a clean pad compound.
  • Features red “brake in’ surface coating for instant safe braking after install.

An excellent solution for 4×4 use, this heavy duty Greenstuff™ formulation has slightly lower friction than its 2000 series counterpart (average friction coefficient 0.45mm) but has the benefit of longer life and better resistance to offroad conditions of dust and sand etc. It has an extremely low rotor wear factor and medium-to-good lifetime.

Greenstuff™ – 7000 Series – 4×4 / SUV Supreme Brake Pad

For a small price premium over the 6000 series, these pads are the ultimate SUV / 4×4 front end pad. They will stop faster and last longer with almost zero brake dust and are EBC’s premium offering for heavy 4x4s. These pads are guaranteed noise free. Average friction coefficient 0.45mm. Features and benefits include chamfers and slots, shimmed, and coated with EBC’s own Brake-In friction accelerator for fast bed-in.

    I was amazed at the stopping power.I have a performance motor on my car and these pads are very reliable to reduce speed and stop the vehicle.

  2. Greg – Performance

    I am very happy with performance of pads, but beware of brake dust. Green pads create great deal of brake dust. My rims are black in 3-4 days. IF that doesn’t matter, they are very good pads.

    Good performance pads with almost no dust. Very long lasting.

  4. GeZza – Performance

    I got these pads about 10 months ago and are ready for another set now. These pads teamed up with my choice of rotors stop like you have been punched in the guts. I will always get these pads for all my future cars.

  5. Purchased a set of EBC Greenstuff 6000 for my 02 VW Eurovan (T4) MV. I would have loved to pair them with EBC dimpled / slotted rotors but here in the US they are not offered for my vehicle. Ended up pairing them with Zimmermann Sport (drilled) rotors and I am very happy with the results. The bed in period was very quick with no squeaks or noise. Stopping distance definitely decreased and very smooth. Brake response like OEM but stops smoother and quicker. Only have 5k miles so far on them so we will see how they wear. Much less dust than the OEM. Actually loads less ! Dust seems to be light brownish rather than a charcoal colour with the OEMs.

    Was difficult finding the rear pads for my vehicle which is probably due to so few being here in the US. We through 3 different suppliers that advertised 1 week to 10 day delivery but after 1 month could never send. Brandon at EBC in the US helped out and got me the pads within 1 week.

    Only decision now is what pad and rotor combo to go with on my 2010 VW Tiguan.

    Purchase location: US supplier (cannot remember) for front and EBC directly for rears.

  6. I have never written a praise letter until now. I have an 02 Dodge Neon ES. I have driven the car hard its entire 165k mile life. When the factory pads fell short and I started to out gas the pads, I decided then to upgrade. I went with your EBC Greenstuff brake pads and GD slotted and dimpled rotors. That was about 8 years ago or so. Your pad and rotor combo has never let me down. The braking distance was car lengths difference. I never out gassed them once. I even had an issue one night when the passenger front caliper locked up and caught the rotor on fire from heat. We put the fire out let the brakes cool down and in the morning drove it home. That incident was 1 and a half years ago and up until yesterday morning they were still on the car doing the job they were meant to do. BRAVO EBC BRAVO!

  7. Just wanted to let you all at EBC a know I appreciate your products. In my opinion they are the best.

    I’ve used your rotors and pads on the last four of my cars and each time I feel the quality of your parts is improved even more than it was.

    I really enjoy the “perfect fit” of everything I’ve tried. No fuss of making parts fit.
    The stopping power, especially of my current Stage 5 set in my 12 Camaro is always above other brands I’ve used.

    The best feature of EBC products, in my opinion and experience, is the durability. I’ve never had an EBC part fail, even when I had a stuck caliper and drove on freeway for over 40 miles. Yeah, the Greenstuff brake pads were toasted and the paint blackened. Yeah, there was plenty of smell and smoke.

    But I let it cool naturally all day. Then fixed caliper. Pads were undamaged except for cosmetic paint. The rotor (also EBC) was also unphased by what would have warped any other brand.
    I have no doubt that EBC makes tough and reliable products.

    I always recommend EBC to my family and friends.

    Thank you and keep up the good work!


  8. I never thought stopping could be so much fun! The difference in braking performance over the stock brakes on my 2010 328i X-drive Coupe is simply astounding. The bite with even light pedal pressure is prodigious.

    Stopping from 45 mph happens in one car length. I’ve tried going deep on off-ramps from 80 mph and I can’t even make it dramatic – the EBC Greenstuff brake pads and USR rotors reduce speed so quickly that what I thought was a really late brake seems like nothing. I’ve got to be careful with passengers in the car because they are momentarily terrified if I try one of these manoeuvres – until they see how well the vehicle decelerates.

    Thanks for providing a great product. I’ll be glad to recommend them to anyone.
