CL 4050 18.5 RC5+
Part #: Sublet
Brand: CL Brakes
The RC5+, was developed for light weight vehicles or racing in low grip conditions (street tires, gravel, mud, snow, water, etc.).
An excellent track day compound, it offers moderate friction levels, low noise, is easy on OEM discs, and has excellent cold stopping power. Additionally, it can be used on the rear axle of vehicles to change the brake bias where standard bias adjustment is not possible.
CL Sintered Brake Pads
There are two types of braking materials : sintered materials and organic materials. Only sintered materials can answer to requirements such as powerful braking, heating, underwater, mud / dust use, and cold reactivity. Sintered metal brake pads are made based on powders. The friction product contains at least ten ingredients (Bronze, ceramics, graphites...). Each of these ingredients makes the friction mixture, which is then compressed in a device that will give it its final shape. The obtained item is then positionned on its metal support and then heated in a 900+°C oven. It's the sintering process : a constituent of the product melts, consolidates the material and makes it fuse with its support. The brake pad is then rectified, checked and packed.
