Product Description

Bite, bite, bite, and more bite.  If you like a pad with a high coefficient and low pedal effort, then you’ll love the RC8.  These pads are reserved for heavy, fast cars on race rubber, or pure race cars with downforce.  Due to their extremely high coefficient of friction, it’s recommended that you only mate these pads up with other CL pads in the rear.

While most pads are formed from fibers and organic materials bonded together by resins, CL Brakes Sintered Pads begin as powdered metals such as iron, bronze, and copper, mixed with roughly ten other constituent materials including graphite and carbon.  The mix is compressed in a tool under extreme pressure to give it shape, and then brazed onto a backing plate in an oven at 1800F.  The resulting material is characterized by a consistently high coefficient of friction, stability at high temperatures, and an extremely low wear rates.

CL Brakes originally created sintered brake materials for military applications such as tanks, helicopters, and airplanes, as well as high speed freight and passenger trains like France’s TGV. After extensive development, the technology was successfully introduced in motorcycle applications. The most recent development has focused on aligning the sintered technology with racecars. CL Brakes have now been used successfully at the highest levels of motorsport, including World Rally Championship (WRC) and NASCAR Sprint Cup.
