PAGID RS packaging
RS 7: Black (Discontiuned)
Digressive friction curve. Low friction rear axle racing compound, especially
developed for front wheel driven cars.
RS 14: Black
Medium to high friction ceramic type compound with good initial bite, excellent
release characteristic, very good modulation and controllability. Low wear rate
and fade resistant up to 650°C. Newer compounds have replaced RS14 in some
RS 15: Grey (Not available for all applications, being discontiuned)
Very high torque compound. It combines a 20% higher friction value than the
RS14 with a slightly increased pad wear. Needs finesse to avoid over braking the
car. Good release characteristic and a quick bedding in procedure. Although the
"RS15" has very good modulation it might have an excessive bite for some
RS 19: Yellow
Low pad wear, very disc friendly, wide temperature range , yet most used pad in
endurance racing. Due to excellent release characteristics and controllability
also often used in shorter sprint races.
Best compound for endurance racing on the basis of the RS 14. A slight
reduction of the friction value improves the modulation. Nevertheless, the
friction value is enough for cars without power-assisted brake system and
ensures comfortable low effort on the brake pedal. Constant temperatures up to
600°C (1.100°F) are possible. The combination of friction value, fading
stability and low wear rates on pads and discs realized with this pad compound
is unmatched up to now. Due to its outstanding wear rate and drivability also
used at many sprint races. Application: All endurance racing cars from group N
(Speed-WC, Grand Am Cup) up to GT and Sport-Prototypes. A multiple winner of
Daytona 24h, Le Mans 24h, Sebring 12h, Spa 24 h, Nürburgring 24h, often with no
pad change and usually no disc change.
RS 29: Yellow
Combines the outstanding wear rate of the RS19 with a slightly higher initial
bite and torque.
RS 42: Blue
Medium friction compound with immediate low temperature response. Very easy
bedding process. Classic Rally pad and also very popular in small formula cars.
Newer compounds have replaced RS42 in some applications
RS 44: Orange
Medium friction compound with medium initial bite. Very good rear pad for RWD
front engine and FWD cars. Newer compounds have replaced RS44 in some
PAGID RSC packaging
Sprint race and track day compound for all known types of ceramic brake discs.
This friction material features an ideal combination of cold friction, fade
resistance and low thermal oxidation of the disc surface fibers.
Special race compound for ceramic discs with a high fibre-content in the
friction surface. Excellent fading stability, very high friction level and low
Special race compound for ceramic discs with low fibre-content in the friction
Excellent fading stability, very high friction level and low pad wear.
PAGID RSL race pads packaging
Long distance/endurance compound with very good pad and disc wear, as wll as
friction stability vs. temperature. Low pedal effort, slightly progressive
in-stop behavior but still good modulation.
Newly developed endurance compound based on the RSL1. The friction level bridges
the gap between RSL1 and RS29 but with improved pad and disc wear, as well as
excellent friction stability vs. temperature. The base characteristics of low
pedal effort, slightly progressive in-stop behavior with good modulation have
PAGID RST race pads
High friction compound with very good initial bite and a progressive torque
curve. Very fade resistant.
Suitable for applications with high down-force and / or very high grip.
Medium to high friction and fade resistant compound with a mild progressive
torque curve and good pedal feel. Recommended for GT and Touring Car racing on
tracks where higher temperatures are an issue.
Medium to high friction metal-ceramic type compound with good initial bite and
still excellent modulation and release characteristics. Medium torque, fade
resistant up to 800°C. Lowest thermal conductivity in the RST range.
Medium friction, high heat tolerance with consistent repeatability. Also used
for rear axle applications FWD cars and on long oval racing where more
aggressive materials would disturb the vehicle set up. Recommended for formula
and open wheel racing.
