Carbotech Performance Brakes Introduces the 1521

Every law enforcement or emergency medical services department needs to limit vehicle maintenance and keep vehicles in service, helping their community. Carbotech performance brakes helps to achieve this more efficiently and cost effectively than any other brake alternative. In fact, Carbotech brake pads deliver three to four times the mileage of conventional brakes. Additionally, our more refined compound allows rotors to last up to three times longer as compared to with other brake pad alternatives.

 

 

 

 




The Carbotech 1521 brake pad is sweeping the nation as the pad of choice among fleet, law enforcement, and street vehicles. Our innovative compound offers the following advantages over your original equipment manufacturer or national retailer:

- Confident stopping power
- Increased overall performance and handling
- Excellent modulation and release characteristics
- Better control entering the corners
- Longer brake pad and rotor life—up to four times longer than the competition!
- 100% Non-corrosive dust

The Carbotech Advantage
Friction Material: material that is pushed against a disc to create friction when a decrease in speed or a stop is desired as seen in braking.

Friction materials have evolved greatly over time. Most of our competition still uses dust producing, rotor eating, unhealthy (due to asbestos) compounds. Carbotech is the industry leader in ceramic compounds. Friction materials that contain ceramic formulations have become recognized for their desirable blend of traits. Ceramic compounds use copper fibers (amongst other materials) in place of the semi-metallic pad's steel fibers. This allows the ceramic pads to handle higher brake temperatures with less heat fade, and provide faster recovery after the heavy braking.  Another characteristic that makes Carbotech-Ceramic™ materials attractive is the absence of noticeable dust. All brake pads produce dust as they wear. Carbotech-Ceramic™ compound ingredients produce a light colored dust that is much less noticeable.  On that same note, all Carbotech compounds produce a 100% non-corrosive dust that can be rinsed off with a hose. Ceramic compounds extend brake life compared to most other semi-metallic and organic materials, and at the same time they outlast other premium pad materials by a significant margin, without compromising in noise control, pad life, and all around braking performance.

Proven performance.
Carbotech delivers outstanding braking, helping you control your cruiser and giving you outstanding performance in the toughest, most demanding driving conditions.

“Our Carbotech brake pads have lasted three to four times longer than the factory pads, which has reduced the frequency of brake repair jobs. By increasing the uptime of the cruisers, we are projecting significant annual cost savings.”

Christoper J. Collins
Chief of Police
Willoughby Hills, Ohio

“Since we only do one brake job a year instead of three or four, the cost savings on our fleet of ten cruisers is immense.”

Jerry Bascome
Lieutenant
Police Department, Bedford Heights, Ohio
