Pagid racing compounds are complex formulations with very high content of ceramic materials. The difference to competitors metallic compounds is the superior thermal insulation and the higher heat resistance of ceramic compared to iron. Ceramic has a very low heat conductivity, so less brake disc temperature goes through the pad to the caliper. Pagid have measured up to 140 degrees farenheit difference in temperature compared to competitor pads.
Pagid uses a unique and patented system to ensure the friction material does not delaminate from the steel backing plate. The friction material is attached to the backing plate in two ways, adhesive bonding and mechanical retention. Pagid is the only race pad that features a retention system which not only connects the steel backing plate with the under-layer, but also with the friction material itself.
Pagid RST brake pads were developed exclusively for use in Sprint Racing and Rally competition, with high average friction, aggressive instop behavior and instand pedal response. They feature a consistantly firm brake pedal at all temperatures and are fade resistant at even the highest brake disc temperatures. The RST3 pads offer a medium friction metal-ceramic type compound with good initial bite and still excellent modulation and release characteristics. Medium torque, fade resistant up to 800 degrees celcius, and the lowest heat conductivity in the RST range.Features:
- Engineered for Sprint Races and Rally Racing
- Good Initial Bite, Excellent Modulation
- Fade Resistant up to 800 Degrees Celcious
- Lowest Heat Conductivity in the RST Range
