Better brakes less dust
Improved stopping power can be as easy as a simple pad change with EBC aramid fibre Greenstuff brake pads. EBC Brakes not only improve stopping power, they can reduce dust by up to 80%, reduce disc wear and extend pad service life in many cases, and are suitable for both street and track applications… Let us explain how to upgrade your brakes for a fraction of the cost of original equipment parts.
EBC Sport Discs, Dimpled and Slotted
EBC’s unique wide aperture slots actually pull cool air under the pad surface and help pad and disc cooling. EBC’s “Blind Drilled” dimples help break down surface gases but do not promote cracking, which has been shown to occur with “Through Drilled” discs.
A unique feature of the EBC disc is that the slots extend completely to the outer edge of the disc, which allows any dirt, dust gases, grit or debris from heavy braking to exit the pad braking area. This ensures flat and parallel wear of the pads throughout their wear life and use.
All EBC sport discs are gold zinc anodised to prevent the discs from corrosion in areas not swept by the brake pad. Optimum brake performance is realised after the zinc coating has been removed from the pad track area which can take up to 200 miles. It is normal that a small amount of noise is exhibited from EBC slotted rotors when they are first applied. This noise gradually diminishes and at around 1,000 miles of road use the noise will be minimal. By nature of the way this product works, EBC sport slotted discs will always make “some” noise and this is not cause for concern, it is not a safety issue and it is not covered by warranty.

- Blind drilled holes
- Precision machined and balanced
- Gold anodised zinc finish for protection against rust
EBC YELLOWSTUFF FULL RACE PADS
Can be used on the street
Although a full race material and capable of high temperature use with very good wear life, this new formulation sets a new trend in race type brake pad compounds. The “bite” from cold is superb which is uncommon with race materials (normally requiring warm-up) and makes this a pad which can be safely used on the highway as well as on the race track. This new formulation was used by numerous championship race and rally drivers in 2004 and is truly a milestone in brake pad material development.
NOW R90 APPROVED for highway use
on certain high specification roadgoing vehicles such as FTO, GTO, Evo, Impreza, M3, M5, Porsche, Skyline. Please ask EBC technical department for details on
- EDGE CHAMFERS - many OEM pads have edge chamfers which prevent low speed brake noise caused by pad “bounce”. Contrary to expectation edge chamfers DO NOT reduce pad life and in some cases have even been found to enhance pad wear life as the pad operates more efficiently.
- POWDER COAT PAINT - the new glasslike finish on all EBC powder coated pads has delivered a pad that is completely resistant to corrosion. Powder coat simply lasts forever. Pads look good for their entire wear life.
- BRAKE-IN COATING - this new mild abrasive red
coating applied to the surface of green and red pads since mid-2004 helps pads bed-in quickly after installation.
- NOISE REDUCTION SHIMS - certain part numbers in the green range and ALL part numbers in the Redstuff Ceramic range now carry black noise reduction shims on the reverse.

Branded with the Greenstuff or Redstuff logos, the EBC aramid fibre automotive brake pads are unique in their construction using hi-tech fibres such as Dupont® Kevlar® and Twaron®. Kevlar® for example is a high tech man-made aramid fibre that is 6 times as strong as steel when used in a matrix form, impervious to oils and chemicals, and can withstand temperatures over 1000° yet is extremely low in abrasion. EBC use these types of fibres to produce premium quality pads that deliver low rotor wear, minimal dust and stop you faster whether you drive an SUV or truck or even drive a race car. EBC offer specialty compounds designed for each type of driving and driver.
GENERAL REPLACEMENT BRAKES
EBC black coded brake pads are a high friction premium quality friction material approved to ECE R90 brake safety regulations and as such are an exact equivalent to original equipment pads fitted to your vehicle from the factory.
When you buy EBC R90 replacement pads you are getting an exact equivalent to an original equipment pad for far less money. Don’t let the lower price point cloud your view of this superb quality product, these pads will stop your vehicle as fast as any original equipment pad and faster than most aftermarket pads. One brilliant feature of EBC R90 pads is their ability to completely eliminate brake judder and these pads will actually COMPENSATE for mild brake judder after 300-400 miles of use.
PREMIUM STREET – GREENSTUFF 2000 SERIES
There have been many versions of this fabulous brake compound over the 7 years that it has existed but the latest formulation AF44/78 is surely one of the finest performance brake compounds ever to be sold plus has the benefits of being a low dust material.
EBC Greenstuff is the ideal choice for premium pad replacement for performance use in hot hatches or for high speed motorway driving, or for heavy load situations such as towing and is capable of stopping a motor vehicle 9 metres shorter faster than stock OEM pads.*
If you ever need to make a panic stop from high speed, you will really appreciate the stopping power that Greenstuff delivers.
EBC REDSTUFF CERAMIC - STREET USE ON HIGHLY TUNED CARS
Since this material was introduced in late 2003, it has received many positive write ups from performance drivers of faster cars such as the Impreza. You can read some of these write ups and comparisons to other performance materials on www.scoobynet.com and www.subiegal.com. This is a truly impressive fast road pad for repeated heavy braking. It emits far less dust than semi-metallic pads and has been proven to stop a saloon car 13 metres quicker than OEM pads from 100mph/160kph.*
EBC 6000 SERIES HEAVY DUTY GREENSTUFF FOR 4 X 4
An excellent solution for 4x4 use, this heavy duty Greenstuff formulation has slightly lower friction than its 2000 series counterpart but has the benefit of longer life and better resistance to offroad conditions of dust and sand etc. It has an extremely low rotor wear factor and medium-to-good lifetime.
* Stopping tests were done on a closed race track at the MIRA research facility and not on the public highway.
