CARBOTECH BRAKE COMPOUNDS
The Carbotech‚Ñ¢ 1521‚Ñ¢ is our high performance street compound. The 1521‚Ñ¢ compound is known for its release and modulation, along with unmatched rotor friendliness. 1521‚Ñ¢ is also a very low dusting and low noise compound with an excellent initial bite. This compound's excellent linear torque production provides incredible braking force without ABS intervention. Carbotech‚Ñ¢ 1521‚Ñ¢ operating range starts out at ambient and goes up to 800¬∞F (426¬∞C+). 1521‚Ñ¢ is suitable for ALL street cars, perfect for your tow vehicle or fleet vehicle. Carbotech‚Ñ¢ 1521‚Ñ¢ is NOT recommended for ANY track use.
The AX6‚Ñ¢ is specifically engineered for Autocross applications. A high torque brake compound delivering reliable and consistent performance over a very wide operating temperature range of 50¬∞F to 1000¬∞F + (10¬∞C to 537¬∞C+). The advanced compound matrix provides an excellent initial bite, high coefficient of friction at lower temperatures along with very progressive brake modulation and release characteristics. Many drivers use the AX6‚Ñ¢ for street driving as well, even though Carbotech‚Ñ¢ doesn't recommend street driving with AX6‚Ñ¢ due to possible elevated levels of dust and noise. AX6‚Ñ¢ is NOT recommended as a race compound in most applications.
A high torque brake compound with a wide operating temperature range of 200¬∞F-1250¬∞F+ (93¬∞C to 676¬∞C+). Carbotech‚Ñ¢ XP8‚Ñ¢ is the first of our racing compounds. Good initial bite at race temperatures, high coefficient of friction, excellent modulation and release characteristics. Extremely high fade resistance and very rotor friendly. Perfect for track day use with any tire and can still be driven safely to and from the track. Carbotech‚Ñ¢ does NOT recommended XP8‚Ñ¢ as a daily driven street pad due to elevated levels of dust and noise. Carbotech‚Ñ¢ XP8‚Ñ¢ is a great compound on the front & rear of most open wheel and sports racers.
When Carbotech‚Ñ¢ unleashed the XP10‚Ñ¢ to the general public it immediately gathered multiple regional, divisional, and national championships. The XP10‚Ñ¢ has a very strong initial bite with a coefficient of friction and rotor friendliness unmatched in the industry. Fade resistance is in excess of 1475¬∞F (801¬∞C). XP10‚Ñ¢ still maintains the highly praised release, excellent modulation and rotor friendliness that have made all Carbotech‚Ñ¢ compounds so successful. Carbotech‚Ñ¢ XP10‚Ñ¢ is not recommended as a daily-driven street pad due to possible elevated levels of dust and noise.
Another highly successful XP‚Ñ¢ series compound with an excellent initial bite, torque and fade resistance over and above the XP10‚Ñ¢ compound. XP12‚Ñ¢ has temperature range of 250¬∞F to 1850¬∞F+ (121¬∞C to 1010¬∞C+). The XP12‚Ñ¢ has that excellent Carbotech‚Ñ¢ release and modulation that has made all other Carbotech‚Ñ¢ compounds so successful. The XP12‚Ñ¢ is more rotor aggressive than XP10‚Ñ¢, but compared to the competition the XP12‚Ñ¢ is still very rotor friendly. XP12‚Ñ¢ is NOT recommended for use as a daily driven street pad due to possible elevated levels of dust and noise.
