Carbotech Engineering C5 & C6 Corvette high-performance brake pads are built using a proprietary 3-stage chemical bonding and riveting process. All of the companys trackproven friction compounds work in a wide range of temperatures, offer low wear, and are rotor friendly. Carbotech's family of brake compounds allow for fine tuning of your Corvette's braking characteristics depending on a specific enthusiasts application and use.
Another highly successful XP series compound with an excellent initial bite, torque and fade resistance over and above the XP10 compound. XP12 has temperature range of 250F to 1850F+ (121C to 1010C+). The XP12 has that excellent Carbotech release and modulation that has made all other Carbotech compounds so successful. The XP12 is more rotor aggressive than XP10, but compared to the competition the XP12 is still very rotor friendly. XP12 is NOT recommended for use as a daily driven street pad due to possible elevated levels of dust and noise.

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.
