Performance Friction Corp. (PFC) has released a new corrosion protection coating for brake pads.
The PFC corrosion resistant protective coating prevents rust, peeling, corrosion, and is extremely temperature resistant, PFC said.
According to the company, the PFC coating incorporates high temperature ceramic technology for strong protection on all surfaces of the brake pad. Under extreme testing procedures, the PFC coating withstands all the elements.
The coating also endured a salt spray and high temperature exposure test, resulting in absolutely zero coat peeling and minimal to zero rust, with red rust calculated between only 1–2%, PFC added.
After exposing the coated pads to a second PFC cycle of testing, enduring double the salt spray and high temperature bakes, the PFC pads had minimal rust, with red rust calculated between only 2–4%, according to the company. The coating did not peel from the pad, proving its extreme resistance to the salt spray and high temperature exposure. After a third exposure to the PFC testing cycle, enduring triple the salt spray and high temperature bake, the PFC pads had little rust, between 5–15%.
