Graph shows friction vs temperature. PAGID materials are very linear as far as rubbing speed and line pressure is concerned. Since the coefficient of friction is related among other things to the brake disc material we do not show friction levels in this graph. It is only considered to show the difference among the Pagid compounds.
PAGID Friction Compounds
PAGID racing compounds are complex formulations with very high content of ceramic materials. All Pagid materials are asbestos free. The difference to competitor’s ‘metallic’ compounds is the superior thermal insulation and the higher heat resistance of ceramic compared to iron. Ceramic has, to the contrary of iron, very low heat conductivity. Consequently less disc (rotor) temperature goes through the pad into the caliper. We measured up to 60°C (140°F) less caliper temperatures with PAGID pads vs competitor’s pads. This is very crucial when it comes to brake fluid boiling.
