5013W45T20 CL BRAKES - Brake Pads
CL Brakes (formerly known as Carbone Lorraine) have beaten all other brake pads in terms of performance & price. These pads are designed for competition/track day use and are used by top teams around the world. The pads are made of a unique sintered material resulting in all compounds having a very high friction coefficient and its uncompressible material gives a stiffer pedal and better brake modulation. Unlike other performance pads these are gentle on the discs and require no specific bedding in procedure. One of its best features is that the pad material operates from cold and friction never decreases with high temperatures.
* Excellent grip from cold
* Grip doesn’t decrease with high temperatures
* No specific bedding in procedure necessary
* No material transfer
* Gentle on discs
* Very low wear rate
* Sintered metal compound brazed to high quality backing plate
* Environmentally friendly, no lead, no asbestos and no nickel
The pads are available in four different compounds:
RC5 Compound (Average friction coefficient µ = 0.4): This material in the range is particularly suitable for light car applications, endurance races etc... thanks to its low wear rate in low grip race conditions (Gravel, wet, standard tyres etc…). Fitted in rear axel, it helps to get the right brake balance when brake bias adjustment is not possible. Easy to use for track day's thanks to its low noise level, moderate and very stable friction level, effective from cold and gentle with brake discs.
RC6 Compound (Average friction coefficient µ = 0.5): Carbone Lorraine's original compound first produced 7 years ago to match a very large application range in rally and circuit. It can be used in almost every type of competition and provides a high and stable friction level. Can be used front and/or rear combined with the RC5 and RC8. The discs life is increased because there is no material transfer.
RC6E Compound (Average friction coefficient µ = 0.46): New compound launched during 2008, the RC6 Endurance offers a good level of grip combined with extremely low disc/pad wear rate making this the winning combination for endurance races. As with the entire product range the bedding in process is easy and the performance is very stable from cold to high temperature.
RC8 Compound (Average friction coefficient µ = 0.6): This material is designed for the most demanding high performance cars, (WRC, Nascar, WTCC, ZA V8, GrpN…..) Very high and stable friction level which will shorten your brake distance without locking the wheels. This compound should be used with another C.L pad for the rear axel. RC8 is also available with a grooved backing plate option (RC8-R).
RC8-R:Designed to provide a radiator effect the contact area with the calliper is reduced providing better heat transfer. This patented shape is particularly useful in cases of brake fluid temperature issues and with ventilated brake systems (air ducts).
