Performance Friction Brakes – BRED FROM RACING, MADE FOR STREET
Over 1500 championships have been won on PFC carbon metallic pads but fleet maintenance managers also declare them a winner because of their stopping power, safety, extended pad and rotor life and corrosion resistance. Performance Friction Corporation is known for their innovative brake solutions and is the standard of excellence in high-performance vehicles, commercial fleets and street vehicles.
If you are a truck or bus operator, you may have experienced a great deal of problems with tone ring corrosion causing loss of ABS signals. This can lead to the need for the fleet to change the rotors at very low mileage – the rotor is fine but the ABS tone ring has failed. Testing has shown mere coatings are ineffective in preventing this corrosion because of very high, sustained temperatures in the rotor hat. Performance Friction Long Life Brake Rotors addresses this concern with a design created specifically to better handle the heat. This can translate into huge savings for the fleet in parts, labor and downtime. Download our cost savings calculator (Excel Spreadsheet).
With a strong emphasis on the environment, PFC brake pads are more than just asbestos-free – they contain no antimony, lead, chromium or potassium titanate – making them safe for the technician, the environment, and the driver.
