As you can see the new RS range now includes RSL, RSC, RST and the S range.
There will be a transition period in which some of these new materials will replace existing compounds.
Brake pad technology is constantly being updated and Pagid are in front when it comes to research and development of new brake pad compounds and materials. The new materials encompass everything from high performance road pads to the very latest in ceramic race pad technology.
Pagid RSH Range
The RSH 3 is an organic compound optimized for sprint races with
historic cars. Due to the perfect combination of the main characteristics
we can offer a wide application range. Very popular due to its high
initial bite and excellent modulation and release characteristics.
Useable for Rally, GT and Touring cars for circuit racing and also for club racing.
Pagid RSL Range
developed long distance/endurance racing pads.
Excellent pad wear rate under endurance conditions, excellent disc life, less aggressive than RST giving best possible brake balance, modulation and consistency of friction under endurance conditions.
RSL compounds are developed to comply with latest requirements in endurance racing and to ecological standards in the automotive industry.(more information)
Pagid RSC Range
developed brake pads for ceramic racing disc.
Race compounds specifically engineered for various ceramic disc applications. Only for use with Carbon Ceramic composite brake discs.
Pagid RST Range
developed brake pads for sprint racing and rally.
High average friction, aggressive instop behaviour with instant pedal response and release, consistently firm pedal at all temperatures, fade resistant at highest disc temperatures.
Pagid S Range
S Sportspads have been specifically designed for high performance
brake system usage onpublic roads.
Pagid RS Range
established and respected product range. A full range for fast road,
track day and race applications.
Carbon Based Brake Pads
RS 4-2 Blue
Few brake friction compounds are as highly regarded as PAGID RS4-2 (known by many as 'PAGID Blue'). Originally developed in the late 1980's RS4-2 remains our biggest selling and most versatile friction compound. Newly released as RSH 42.
Designed as the ultimate user friendly road material to satisfy the demands of prestige sports car manufacturers such as Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati.
A Carbon based friction material with a progressively increasing friction curve, giving it lower friction than RS4-2 below 300°c and higher friction above 300°c. It offers slightly less initial bite and low temperature response than RS4-2, but with the same high levels of controllability.
Ceramic Based Brake Pads
The latest development from the engineers at PAGID, the initial design criteria was for a material specific for F3. However initial feedback shows that this compound is a great all rounder.
RS14 is our most popular ceramic based friction material. Compared to RS4-2 this compound offers a good increase in initial bite and average torque, it has very good modulation characteristics and offers good control against wheel lock at all temperatures.
Combining the benefits of RS14 with approximately a 20% increase in average friction and torque, with even greater bite and braking ability. The increase in bite is often very useful on cars without servo assistance, for instance that are known to require high pedal forces to brake the car efficiently.
This material provides very good levels of performance and response at all temperature levels, only slight temperature inputs are required to bring the pad up to its optimum performance level. A true favourite with endurance racers having won many classes at all major endurance events. Replaced with RSH 29E.
With a very similar friction coefficient to RS19 with improvements in initial bite offering quicker response and slightly more temperature stable at the upper levels of the temperature range. Although designed primarily for endurance racing, because of the consistent levels of performance and user friendliness many competitors use this material successfully for sprint and short distance races also. Newly released as RSH 29E.
