EBC Brakes extension taking shape in the New Year

The £10 million expansion at the EBC Brakes World Headquarters in Pineham, Northampton is really taking shape now as the roof cladding and walls have just been added. The 85,000 sq. ft. World Headquarters building that was originally opened in December 2011 has grown some more to accommodate the new ‘R&D Centre of Excellence’ for motor vehicle brakes and will also include manufacturing areas for the new product lines being launched. This is a great asset to the Northamptonshire population as the extension will also provide many new staff vacancies.

Here’s a slideshow of the recent EBC extension developments

EBC high performance brake lines imageEBC High Performance Brake Lines

EBC Brakes’ range of UK manufactured high performance braided steel brake lines are 100% pressure tested, guaranteed to be leak free and give a firmer, more responsive feel compared to rubber lines.

All of our brake lines not only meet our own stringent standards but they are also approved by TÜV, DOT, ADR and ISO.

All of our brake line kits are a direct replacement of the original manufacturers lines therefore they fit first time, every time – no need for adjusting angles or using universal fittings that do not fit.

Ultimax2™ brake pads image

Ultimax2™

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.

EBC Greenstuff Brake Pads imageEBC Greenstuff Brake Pads

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.

EBC Brakes Redstuff Ceramic Brake Pads imageEBC Brakes Redstuff Ceramic Brake Pads

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.

EBC Ultimax Slotted USR Brake Rotors imageEBC 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 image

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) imageBSD (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.

EBC GPFAX motorcycle race only Brake Pads imageGPFAX sintered race only brake pads

The GPFAX Formula Sintered Race pads are a direct replacement of the GPFA series. This formula is even higher in friction and created specifically to be used only on asphalt surfaces such as those found in race track conditions. Because of the super performance that they provide, these brake pads are a growing favourite choice of superbike racers.
