Wilwood Brake Pad Bedding
Bedding is a "real conditions" heat cycle and the final step in preparing the pads for service. All pads, even OE stock replacement parts, will benefit from a proper bedding cycle. Bedding can be done either in the vehicle, or on a special bedding dyno that can realistically duplicate the torque loads, pressure, and temperature that will be experienced in the vehicle. The bedding process is the final "heat cure" for the pads. This final bedding cure differs from an oven heat cure in such that the oven heat cure does not include the pressure, torque, and elevated surface temperatures that are necessary to properly condition the pad for service. New pads must be deliberately brought up to temperature through a series of controlled cycles and then slowly cooled. If the pads are put into hard service right from the start, damage from fractures or accelerated deterioration due to extreme temperature variations between the surface and the body of the pad can occur.
Once the brake system has been tested and determined safe to operate the vehicle, follow these steps for bedding of all pad materials.
