StopTech Introduces Performance Brake Pads
STOPTECH INTRODUCES STREET PERFORMANCE BRAKE PADS:
TRACK-PROVEN AND STREET-FRIENDLY BRAKE FRICTION
Los Angeles (November 2009) – StopTech, a leading innovator of world-class brake components and systems for production-based racing cars and high performance vehicles, is introducing StopTech Street Performance Brake Pads designed for daily driving while providing performance benefits on the track.
StopTech Street Performance Brake Pads are engineered to meet the demands of high-performance driving situations while maintaining their ability to work in normal driving conditions. The first full line of brake pads from StopTech, the ultra-performance division of Centric Parts, combines the benefits of premium street brake pads with aggressive friction formulas suitable for light track use.
“StopTech Street Performance Brake Pads marries ten years of track-proven brake systems experience with our extensive knowledge of brake friction materials,” stated Dan Lelchuk, President of Centric Parts, a leading manufacturer and supplier of aftermarket brake components, including the Posi-Quiet Premium, Centric Premium and C-Tek lines of brake pads.
StopTech Street Performance Brake Pads utilize para-aramid composites to deliver optimum stopping performance over a wide temperature range and are specially formulated to deliver linear response in both cold and hot conditions. All StopTech Brake pads are 100% positive molded and include OE-style shims to eliminate noise associated with brake pad vibration. In addition each StopTech brake pad is scorched to remove any impurities in the friction material to provide improved stopping power right out of the box.
StopTech was the first to offer balanced brake upgrades for production cars. The ten year old company remains the worldwide leader with more than 700 platform offerings to dramatically improve overall braking performance. StopTech’s industry leading technologies and materials, from rock-solid calipers to ingeniously efficient heat-handling rotors, have earned four patents that result in shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, and less brake fade.
