Improve your braking performance, extend the life of your brake components, and make your braking system safer. Our titanium brake pad shims are an excellent and inexpensive way for managing your brake heat. They fit between your brake pad and brake caliper pistons to form a thermal barrier that protects your caliper and fluid from excess heat.
Our titanium brake pad shims are made of are precision engineered and cut 0.5mm 6Al-4V (Grade 5) Titanium. This material offers the lowest thermal conductivity of any titanium. In addition, we’ve applied a ceramic thermal barrier coating to further prevent heat transfer to the brake caliper, pistons and fluid. The coating used for these shims is the same as what is used on high performance pistons.
Consistent Braking on the Track
Our Titanium Brake Pad Shims help prevent “brake fade” from happening. Brake fade is when there is a sudden loss of braking power that occurs when the brake fluid starts to overheat. Brake fade can be very dangerous on the track.
By reducing the likelihood of brake fake, our brake pad shims reduce the chance of brake failure, thus protecting you from going off-track as you push for the limits of your car.
Reduced Maintenance Costs
By reducing the heat transfer from the brake pads to other brake caliper components, including dust boots, caliper seals, piston surfaces and of course brake fluid, the braking system will last longer, thus lowering your maintenance costs. The maintenance interval of the brake components will also be extended. Spend more time on the track rather than in the shop.
