When we say “Trackday” don’t underestimate this fantastic material.
The reason we draw users’ attention to the words Trackday ( also known in the USA as lapping ) is because of this material’s fantastic ability to bed in quickly. Weekend fit and go drivers do not want to spend their laps bedding in brake pads.
Yet when used on more serious race track drivers this material delights and up to rotor temps of 550C /1030 F Bluestuff is the way to go. This material has been used by numerous spec series cup car racing groups in Europe.
The NDX pad material is bonded to the steel backing plates using the patented NUCAP NRS hook system which raises shear and bond strength by a factor of five and prevents pad to plate separation. The pads are then baked and ground and feature high-volume Vee grooves to catch the larger amount of debris from track use.
Target use is all types of fast and heavier cars in performance and race driving with a much enhanced lifetime over our previous Yellowstuff grade pads.
R&D Manager Steve Payne checks out the first batch of the Bluestuff NDX material made with a revolutionary process to produce the highly acclaimed EBC Bluestuff NDX Race Pads. The process involves 5 steps never before used in friction materials and sets EBC Brakes firmly in the lead as a provider of brake friction.
Bluestuff is available in NDX high friction version at 0.52 Mu and a lower B version for many rear applications on lighter cars with a lower 0.42 Mu.
