PFC Racing Brake Pads for PFC Z29 BBK Caliper.
PFC Brakes are a leader in high-performance braking technology. Manufactured right here in the U.S., PFC has been the go-to choice for many top racing teams around the world. They have worked closely with Porsche on the development of their pad compounds and PFC Brakes are standard fitment on Porsche 991 GT3 Cup cars.
We run PFC brakes on our cars for their consistent performance lap-after-lap and their low-wear rates. These things do not overheat either. While you may pay a little bit more for these pads upfront compared to say a Hawk pad, these will last twice as long if not more in many applications. In addition to decreased wear on the pad itself, these pads are also a lot less harsh on rotors. The savings really start to add up compared to inferior brands. In any braking application, you are generally limited by the grip in your tires, these pads will provide all of the stopping power you need.
PFC's can also be used on the street when driving from to and from the track. Like any race pad, they will not have as much bite it the cold, but they will work fine in a pinch. Sometimes they squeak, sometimes they don't, but it generally isn't too bad when they do.
For the 7832 Pad they are available in the following 5 compounds (application dependent):
08 Compound - Smooth Bite - Endurance Racing - 08 compounds are one of PFC's most popular and have gained immediate favor in Trackday/HPDE, Endurance Sportscar, and GT racing due to its performance in applications where smooth initial bite is a must. 08 have a slight friction rise with temperature, excellent release, and modulation characteristics. Very low abraded disc wear with a fine grey slate like disc finish, similar to 01. Despite its considerable performance, 08 wears the longest of all PFC pads and easily matches wear of the other competitors with much higher bite.
11 Compound - Strong Initial Bite - Sprint Racing - is a sprint and medium distance friction providing the ultimate in control, with superior disc conditioning. It is ultra smooth and developed to reduce wheel locking at the end of a stop. Typical Applications; Ideal for use at medium-low grip venues where control and modulation are at a premium. 11's wear is par with PFC's legendary 01 compound showing virtually zero taper wear when raced in a properly designed race caliper.
13 Compound - High Bite - Sprint Racing - 13 Compound is a new generation of ultimate high bite - high friction... 13 compounds were developed from 01 compound with increased bite, modulation, with superior disc conditioning and release characteristics for exceptional control. Ultra-smooth and great for tracks with high grip or high downforce cars. This material won its first race on its first outing - it's that good. It is the ultimate combination of high bite and infinite control. Typical applications; Ideal use for sprint and severe applications. Heavy, fast cars or high downforce cars where bite at first 3rd of the stop is desired. 13's wear is par with PFC's legendary 01 compound. Will operate at higher temperatures if called too as .13 has a very high threshold for fade resistance. .13 has shown of all the high bite, high torque pads in the market to have one of the lowest taper wear in a properly designed race caliper.
15 Compound - Higher Cold Bite - Sprint/Endurance Racing - The new generation 15 compound is becoming very popular due to its excellent braking characteristics. Very good in all conditions and excellent when running at high temperatures. Its easy control and release are appreciated by engineers and drivers. Gentle on discs and low wear rate are other excellent virtues. 15 is a great compound winner in different GT3/GT4 races or open-wheel categories such as US F3, F3, and Indy Lights. It has better cold bite than 11 or 13. The 15 is one of the most complete PFC compounds. 15 works very well with modern racing ABS. Typical Applications: GT3, GT4 front, Touring cars, Formula 3, F3R, Indy series
Z-Rated - High Performance Street - This compound has been developed for fast road/track day applications. It provides more stopping power and increased fade resistance over the std OE materials but retains the good qualities of the road pad i.e., low dusting and noise along with low wear rate. Typical Applications; This compound can be used in OE calipers or aftermarket brake kits in applications where an increase in performance is required over the standard OE friction material. Generally recommended as predominately a street pad.
