Over 100 years of experience in friction and braking mean the Ferodo name is synonymous with excellence. Ferodo was the first brand in the world entirely dedicated to the design and manufacture of friction products. And today our experienced engineers develop leading solutions for even the most demanding conditions.
DS2500 is amongst the foremost high performance track day pads in the business. It is also suitable for some light duty front and many rear pure race applications. It offers excellent refinement for such a high performance pad. The main characteristics of DS2500 are:
Track day & light race use for all vehicle types
Road style refinement but with race material ability to withstand heat with respect to life and μ
Average friction coefficient of 0.42 over working temperature range of 20°-500°C
This new generation of friction material is very low in compressibility ensuring a firm pedal, whilst still providing great life for both disc and pad. Combined with low wheel dusting and good noise characteristics this product is the brake pad for the driver who demands the ultimate in track day braking performance.
DS3000 is the FERODO RACING compound that has set the braking standard from 1998. It has contributed to countless wins and podium positions in many Touring car, rally & GT championships around the world. The main characteristics of DS3000 are:
Heavy duty all-round material choice
Short bedding time
Multiple applications including touring car, rally, Group N, single seat, hill-climb
Average friction coefficient 0.48 over working temperature range of 200°-650°C
Several brake pads on the market boast ‘ceramic’ technology. DS1.11 is the real thing. It is based upon a chemical family known as Siloxanes. Unlike carbon based materials, siloxane chains do not decompose at high temperatures and so DS1.11 keeps on working up to the highest temperatures a brake pad could ever see. That means it won’t fade and has excellent life, the best in the Ferodo Racing range. Moreover the performance remains exactly the same throughout the pad’s (long) life. It is formulated to provide a very flat friction profile at a medium/high level of friction. The pad compression is very low, always, and so pedal travel is short and consistent. See our Friction graph to compare with other Ferodo compounds.
The main characteristics of DS1.11 are:
Heavy duty endurance material
Applications – touring car, GT, single seat
Average friction coefficient 0.46 over working temperature range of 200°-700°C
Very kind to discs
DSUNO is the latest heavy duty racing material from Ferodo Racing. It has replaced DS2.11 and is already race proven in GT, touring car, Formula & rally. The technical objective for the material was to provide a high friction output, whilst improving pad and disc life and to offer excellent modulability throughout the brake event. The latter means the risk of wheel lock is significantly reduced compared to other pads with the same high nominal friction coefficient, without any loss of output. This is the ultimate feel-good pad.
Heavy duty semi-endurance material
Applications – touring car, GT, single seat, rally
Average friction coefficient 0.48 over working temperature range of 200°-700°C
Very controllable torque output
Very kind to discs
