Powerbrake PB15 race compound
We supply our PB15 pad compound to leading factory FIA Cross Country and Dakar Rally teams. Our PB15 material has a higher initial ‘bite’ than our PB13 material. Overall friction co-efficient is about 15% higher than PB13 throughout the brake application. The material exhibits a slightly rising torque curve during a single brake application at operating temperature. After many years of testing with leading Dakar teams, we have found our PB15 material to offer the most stable performance across a wide range of off road race conditions (including: gravel, sand, mud and water crossings). The material is easy to bed-in and pad life is extremely good if this material is run at the correct operating temperature. Disc life is very good if the pads are run at the correct operating temps. If high disc wear is experienced, then operating temps are likely too low and our PB13 compound should be used instead.
