Default Axxis Ultimate Brake Pad Special Offer

Vat free sale, 15% off normal prices.

The AXXIS Ultimate is the newest high performance street pad to be introduced into the market from Bendix Mintex in Australia. Building on years of success with their world class Metal Master pads, Bendix Mintex formulated the Ultimate pad compound to compete with the best performance street pads in the world.
The AXXIS Ultimate pads feature a special Kevlarģ and ceramic strengthened formula with a high co-efficient of friction and very high temperature fade resistance. As with all AXXIS pads, the Ultimate pad is a non-asbestos formula.

Designed for extreme high performance street driving and hard braking applications, Ultimate pad users will benefit with extreme stopping power and high resistance to brake fade at high temperatures. Consistent throughout itís operating temperature range, youíll get dependable, predictable stops time after time.

After extensive testing of many different pad compounds, StopTech has chosen the AXXIS Ultimate as their standard pad to be included with their big brake kits. Aggressively driven over and over at their test facility, the AXXIS Ultimate pad has a Maximum Operating Temperature (MOT) of 500 C degrees (932 F deg), and has minimal co-efficient of friction loss throughout itís entire operating temperature range. We found the Ultimate pad poses a combination of cold stopping performance and high temperature fade resistance, as well as the anti-squeal shims, wear sensors where applicable and the excellent overall finish of a world class quality pad, at a price that makes it an exceptional value.

Normal retail prices can be seen on this link, the 15% discount comes off these prices.

They are all like that but once fitted this layer comes off in the break in and then you will have flush pads on the disc's. If you are not happy with them you can send them back and we will exchange them for some new one's

cheers Phil

if this is normal on these pads then i'll happily take your word for it phil. i just wasn't sure if you were aware of it or not, hence my concerns. i did pop over to the CA stand weekend but missed you. tim said you were probably off looking for food.. or something

Bedding-in Street Performance Pads

For a typical performance brake system using street-performance pads, a series of ten partial braking events, from 60mph down to 10mph, will typically raise the temperature of the brake components sufficiently to be considered one bed-in set. Each of the ten partial braking events should achieve moderate-to-high deceleration (about 80 to 90% of the deceleration required to lock up the brakes and/or to engage the ABS), and they should be made one after the other, without allowing the brakes to cool in between.
Depending on the make-up of the pad material, the brake friction will seem to gain slightly in performance, and will then lose or fade somewhat by around the fifth stop (also about the time that a friction smell will be detectable in the passenger compartment). This does not indicate that the brakes are bedded-in. This phenomenon is known as a green fade, as it is characteristic of immature or �green' pads, in which the resins still need to be driven out of the pad material, at the point where the pads meet the rotors. In this circumstance, the upper temperature limit of the friction material will not yet have been reached.
As when bedding-in any set of brakes, care should be taken regarding the longer stopping distance necessary with incompletely bedded pads. This first set of stops in the bed-in process is only complete when all ten stops have been performed - not before. The system should then be allowed to cool, by driving the vehicle at the highest safe speed for the circumstances, without bringing it to a complete stop with the brakes still applied. After cooling the vehicle, a second set of ten partial braking events should be performed, followed by another cooling exercise. In some situations, a third set is beneficial, but two are normally sufficient.

Hope this helps

cheers Phil
