Performance Brake Solutions (PBS) is a leading race and track day brake pad manufacture. Supporting a number of MSA championships, delivering a combination of passionate racing as well as professional manufacturing. Working with top Motorsport individuals.
PBS has been accurately tested within a range of competitive racing series in Europe. Showcasing the brilliant advantages needed to create the ultimate braking force and stamina required.
Brake pads are subjected to huge pressures from the caliper pistons in unequal proportions across the pad. The back plate must remain flat to offer optimal performance so PBS use Nucap NRS hooked back plates so there is a mechanical and adhesive bond between the pad material and back plate.
Eliminating brake fade
When brake pads run at high temperatures, gases can be created by the pad and can cause layer between the pad and brake disc. This can make the driver feel like they have lost performance as the brake pedal feels the same but the car will not stop as normal, this is called fade. A slot is cut into all PBS pads to offer the gasses a route to escape.
PBS brake pads are put through a heat curing treatment in the manufacturing process. This process removes unwanted gasses from the materials in advance, reducing the gasses that can cause fade within the brake pad. Because of this treatment, PBS brake pads only need light bedding in to match the padding to the disc.
Brake pads should be bedded in until up to mid range working temperature then allowed to cool properly. This will also help to removes any gasses that are still within the pad. Not following this process may cause problems leading to a decrease in optimum performance.
With an operating temperature window of 0-800°C, this pad system will handle most serious breaking conditions. Great for racing or track day use with low dust and great brake disc life.
These are by far the best value brake pads on the market giving great consistency, longevity, and friction at both hot and cold temperatures.
Reviews compare them to a carbon Lorraine, CarboTech and performance friction pad without the price to match.
