Ferro-Carbon™ is a unique, high-tech family of friction materials developed and manufactured by Hawk Brake for the racing community. Hawk Pads do not require an extensive "bedding-in" procedure. Keep in mind however, that all disc brake pads require a short period of bedding-in before being used to the maximum of their potential.
Carbon Metallic® is the name used by the Performance Friction Company for its line of
high performance brake pads. These pads are not organic or semi-organic compounds. They contain no asbestos, no Kevlar and no lead or clay fillers. They are integrally molded using the Ionic Fusion™ system and have the highest shear strength in the brake industry. Braking characteristics remain constant throughout the life of the pads.
All brake pads are sold in axle sets (4 pads, or enough to fill 2 calipers).

If you cannot determine the correct part number for your brake pad application, FAX a
tracing of the pad along with the make, model and year of the car to our Tech Department
at 1-262-317-1201. Include as much information as possible about the caliper manufacturer,
maximum permissible pad thickness, rotor type (solid or vented), etc. To be sure
that the size of the pad is not distorted during transmission, mark the overall height and
width of the pad on your tracing.
