Carbotech’s brake pads are unique. Carbotech’s compound is a proprietary blend of carbon, ceramic, and kevlar materials which are blended to outperform rival products. When Carbotech first entered the business, they made pads just like everyone else; they mixed carbon and iron. After 15 years, Carbotech’s R&D team achieved their breakthrough, and today, Carbotech is the Official Brake Pad of the United States Endurance Racing Association. R&D is a way of life at Carbotech, and they’re constantly developing better compounds for both street and racing applications.
