EBC Green Brake Pads
Designed for premium street driving offering better brake effect up to 600°C (1100°F). EBC Greenstuff has a high initial brake effect and gives drivers confidence from first application of the brake pedal.
Appreciated by drivers of cars up to 200 BHP year 2009 sees the launch of the 9th version of EBC 2000 series Greenstuff which has once again pushed the performance barriers of organic friction materials. The latest version of Greenstuff is a deliberately softer compound to improve pedal feel on lighter cars at lower speeds. This resulted in a medium dust material with good lifetime and minimal rotor wear.
Many drivers of lighters cars have used Greenstuff with success in race use and tests at the UK MIRA Motor Vehicle Research Institute have shown a version of Greenstuff to stop a car almost 20 feet quicker than original parts on a popular hot hatch braking from 60 MPH offering a huge 15% brake improvement.
These pads are coated with 'BRAKE-IN SURFACE COATING'.

Preparing the rear caliper on the MINI to accept new brake pads requires a special tool to retract and 'rotate' the rear caliper piston. See the aftermarket Rear Cliper Retraction Tool to prep the rear brake caliper. This tool ensures the right amount of turn as the piston gets retracted.
