Race Pads


Performance Friction 11 Compound

11 compound is a new generation sprint and medium distance friction – the ultimate in control, with superior disc conditioning. Developed from 01 compound with improved bite, modulation, and release characteristics. It is ultra smooth and developed to reduce wheel locking at the end of a stop. Brake with confidence—brake with ultimate control and modulation.

Ideal use for medium-low grip venues where control and modulation is at a premium. Racing venues where ABS  systems is used. .11 can be used in a large spectrum of temperature ranges. 11’s wear is on a par with PFC’s legendary 01 compound. Virtually zero taper wear when raced in a properly designed race caliper.

Performance Friction 08 Compound

The 08 compound is one of PFC’s newest and has gained immediate favour in extended Endurance Sportscar, and GT racing due to its performance in applications where smooth initial bite is a must. 08 has a slight friction rise with temperature, excellent release and modulation characteristics. Very low disc wear, similar to 01. Despite its considerable performance, 08 has the lowest wear rate of all PFC compounds and can easily match the wear characteristics of the other competitor’s materials but with much higher bite.
