Diversified Cryogenics supplies the full range of PFC Z-Rated and Race Compound Brake Pads. PFC pads are available for most cars, trucks, SUV's, performance oriented vehicles, and racing specific brake systems including Brembo and Wilwood. Whether you are looking for a high performance Street Pad or the ultimate Racing Brake Pad, Performance Friction Corporation (PFC) has a pad to meet your needs.
Carbon Metallic® pads are our most popular brake pads. With NO CLAY fillers, they'll outlast the competition 2 to 3 times, and will be the pad best suited for most people's daily driving needs. Carbon Metallic® offers superior braking, pedal feel, and longer life without fade at high temperatures. There are over a dozen varieties of Carbon Metallic®, each custom manufactured for a specific vehicle application.
Z-Rated® pads are an extension of the Carbon Metallic® brand, specifically engineered for high-performance and/or severe-duty usage. Whether you drive a BMW, Corvette, Honda or Mustang, or you tow tons of weight with an F350, Z-Rated® is engineered to deliver safety and performance under even the most severe conditions.
Released in 2001,this compound has increased initial bite and improved modulation. The friction level has been increased for the first two-thirds of the braking event, with flatter torque curve and more linear friction curve compared to 83 and 93. This allows the driver to attack the brake pedal later, reducing the time spent on the brakes. Very smooth release will not over-slow the car, and won't overwhelm the car's set-up.
Like 97 compound, 01 has excellent modulation characteristics that improve controllability and driver confidence. 01 uses Performance Friction's unique lubrication package that maintains a minimal transfer layer on the disc to help prevent brake judder and provide excellent release properties, therefore reducing overall drag in the brake system. 01 is extremely easy on the discs with very low wear. Effective from 167°F and reach 2000°F (75°C, reach 1100°C), optimum-operating range is between 860°F and 1004°F (460°C and 540°C).
This compound is a favorite for the short track dirt and asphalt racers. It is the lowest torque race compound in PFC's arsenal. It is also used as a rear pad to reduce lock up. This compound has won in venues such as Winston Cup at Martinsville, VA to sports cars at 24hrs of Daytona.
This compound was designed as an all-purpose pad where excellent controllability was a priority over ultimate stopping power. Due to its excellent modulation characteristics, this pad has proved very popular with race schools, rallying, and as a rear pad for applications such as touring cars. 97 has the lowest wear of all compounds, typically providing two to three times more life expectancy than competitors. This compound can also dramatically extend disc life.
97 is a medium torque race compound and as a result can provide reduced brake temperatures in situations where poor cooling can result in premature disc failure. 97 has the flattest torque curve of all the Performance Friction compounds. Effective from 167°F and reach 2000°F (75°C, reach 1100°C), 97 uses Performance Friction's unique lubrication package that maintains a minimal transfer layer on the disc to help prevent brake judder and provide excellent release properties, therefore reducing overall drag in the brake system. 97 is extremely easy on the discs with very low wear.
