Ferodo Motorcycle Racing Friction
2 Types of material :-
 
Sintered - XRAC
Siloxane - CP2.11
 
New material to replace CP911 organic material as it performs better in terms of :-
  • fade resistance
  • bite
  • wear of discs and pads
  • friction level

Now in production, available from beginning of Sept 2006

  • “Organic” pads (as opposed to sintered) traditionally based upon phenolic resin binder
    Sintered pads have good temperature stability but lack modulation (on/off swich for brake) hence the need for both organic and sintered products to cover all markets/rider preferences
  • CP2.11 name given to new range of ceramic pads using siloxane resin technology

ADVANTAGES

  • Phenolic resins decompose above 300°causing fade, accelerated wear & lengthening lever
  • Siloxanes are stable upto 1500°C thus eliminating fade, giving long pad life and a firm, consistent lever
  • Being ceramics, siloxanes also enhance friction (abrasive effect) thus increasing braking power
  • Lower Thermal conductivity than sintered pads (no fluid boil)
  • Developed in the lab and on the dynamometer and extensively track tested
  • Suitable for Superbike, Superstock, Supersport, Supermoto
Siloxane technology VS Sintered
  • Lower overall friction
  • Variable in-stop torque
  • High running temperatures
  • High friction level
  • Rising in-stop torque
  • Low temperature compaired with normal sintered
  • Very high friction level
  • Rising in-stop torque
  • Low running temperatures

FERODO - PERFORMANCE THROUGH
INNOVATION

ARRAY COOLING

  • Innovative technology developed by Federal Mogul for Ferodo sintered
    motorcycle brake pads.

  • Reduces considerably brake temperatures by radiative cooling effect.

  • Reduces smearing and material deposition on disc
    Increases initial bite

  • Keeps performance consistent throughout pad life

  • Tested and now used by factory AMA racing teams in USA

Example of pads

XRAC Sintered Pad

  



Conclusions

  • Array Cooling (AC) unique to Ferodo sintered motorcycle brake pads

  • AC Benefits :-

  • Increased pad bite

  • Improved resistance to high temperature fade

  • Higher friction level (mu)

  • Decreased pad wear

  • More consistent performance throughout pad life

  • Reduces smearing and material deposition on disc

  • Full XRAC racing range with Array Cooling to cater for all popular
    racing bikes

  • Full STAC range to cater for new TRACK DAY market. Range designed
    around popular track day applications

 

Bedding-in Instructions

To achieve optimum performance from Ferodo Racing brake pads please follow the instructions below:

1) Perform 25 to 30 trial brake applications, each of approximately 4 seconds, using around 50% of normal race pedal pressure. To shorten the procedure applications can be made along the straights as well as through bends.

2) On completion of trial applications return to the pit lane. Inspect the surface of the brake pads from the two wheels which have been working the hardest. There should be evidence of contact over the full pad area but without glazing. The pads are now ready to race.

Whilst we recommend that pads are inspected, if time does not allow this, assuming procedure (1) has been carried out and a short period of time has elapsed to allow the brake system to cool, the pads will be ready to race.

Important: to optimize the performance and life of both brake pads and discs, during the bedding-in period heat in the braking system should be built up progressively.

Pad wear inspection: brake pads must have at least 2mm of friction material. Excessively worn brake pads must be replaced.

Thermal paint temperature control. Using this procedure, if none of the 3 paints has changed appearance and the braking performance is not considered satisfactory, it may be necessary to reduce cooling to the discs. If all 3 paints have changed appearance, it may be necessary to increase cooling to the discs.
