Compound Descriptions



01 Compound
01 is one of the most accepted race compounds in the PFC's arsenal, and has become the standard by which all brake pads are judged. 01 has good initial bite, with very little torque rise with temperature. At the end of the stop, 01 Compound has less torque scatter than the competition for improved modulation with excellent release. 01 Compound has good disc conditioning properties with low wear. 01 Compound is one of PFC’s most popular race compounds, and wins more World and National Championships annually than any other brake pad on the market. In many applications if 01 isn't available, 11 will replace 01.

      Recommended Applications: 
     01 is recommended as an all-purpose pad in a wide variety of applications. 
     NASCAR Short Track
     Road Course NASCAR Speedway
     Intermediate All Oval Track Race series IndyCar


07 Compound
PFC’s high bite and torque compound and has gained immediate favor in the NASCAR, Sportscar, and Open Wheel racing due to its consistent performance. 07 have higher initial bite and higher average torque than PFC 05 compound. 07 will have some friction rise with temperature for the most severe applications. The release and modulation characteristics are excellent. Very low abraded disc wear with a fine micronic polished disc finish. Despite its considerable performance, 07 will have slightly better wear than 05. This compound demands the most from the vehicle setup and is designed to handle the most severe applications. 07 will be replaced with 13 compound.

      Recommended Applications: For high grip, high downforce, or severe duty applications.
      NASCAR Short Track and Road Course
     Indycars
     F-Nippon
     Indy Lites
     Professional GT
     Daytona Prototype


08 Compound
08 compounds are one of PFC newest and have gained immediate favor in Endurance Sportscar, and GT racing due to its performance in applications where smooth initial bite is a must. 08 have a slight friction rise with temperature, excellent release and modulation characteristics. Very low abraded disc wear with a fine grey slate like disc finish, similar to 01. Despite its considerable performance, 08 wears the longest of all PFC pads and easily matches wear of the other competitors with much higher bite. If temperature isn’t an issue, 08 can be replaced with 12 compound.

     Recommended Applications:
     Endurance Sportscar and GT
     NASCAR Short Track and Road Course Rear
     NASCAR Speedway and Intermediate Rear
     All Oval Track Race series Rear
     SCCA Racing
     Porsche/BMW Club Racing
     Track Day and Driver Education events


11 Compound
11 Compound is a new generation sprint and medium distance friction —the ultimate in control, with superior disc conditioning. 11 compounds were developed from the 01 compound with improved bite, modulation, and release characteristics. It is ultra smooth and developed to reduce wheel locking at the end of a stop. Brake with confidence—brake with ultimate control and modulation. For many applications, 11 will replace the venerable 01 compound.  11’s wear is par with PFC’s legendary 01 compound. Virtually zero taper wear when raced in a properly designed race caliper.

     Recommended Applications:
     Ideal use for medium-low grip venues where control and modulation is at a premium
     Racing venues where ABS systems are used
     Can be used in a large spectrum of temperature ranges.


12 Compound
12 Compound is a new generation endurance friction—excellent bite with 24 hour durability in its DNA and superior disc conditioning. 12 compounds were developed from 08 Compound with improved wear, modulation, and release characteristics. It is the ultimate in wear. The PFC .12 Compound won in its debut race the 2013 Daytona 24hr overall winner-There’s new endurance winner in the PFC arsenal. 12 compound wear is longer than 08 where high temperatures is not an issue. 12’s wear is at its optimum when disc temperature paints show 450-500c operating temperatures but will operate at higher temperatures if called too. Virtually zero taper wear when raced in a properly designed race caliper.

     Recommended Applications:
     Ideal use for endurance where long wear is at a premium
     Racing venues where ABS systems are used
     

13 Compound
13 Compound is a new generation of ultimate high bite—high friction... 13 compounds were developed from 01 compound with increased bite, modulation, with superior disc conditioning and release characteristics for exceptional control. Ultra smooth and great for tracks with high grip or high downforce cars. This material won its first race on its first outing—it’s that good. It is the ultimate combination of high bite and infinite control.  13’s wear is par with PFC’s legendary 01 compound. Will operate at higher temperatures if called too as .13 has a very high threshold for fade resistance. .13 has shown of all the high bite, high torque pads in the market to have one of the lowest taper wear in a properly designed race caliper.

     Recommended Applications:
     Ideal use for sprint and severe applications. 
     Heavy, fast cars or high down-force cars where bite at first 3rd of the stop is desired.
     

14 Compound
14 Compound is a new generation sprint and medium distance friction—ultra smooth bite and lower torque output than 11 or 01 compound. Used in applications where low grip (dirt) or where rear control for locking is required. Excellent replacement for PFC 97 compounds. 14 compound has excellent disc conditioning and release characteristics. 14 can be used in a large spectrum of temperature ranges. Virtually zero taper wear when raced in a properly designed race caliper.

     Recommended Applications:
     Ideal use for medium-low grip venues where control and modulation is at a premium.
     Racing venues where ABS systems are used.
