Heavy Duty
pads box

Designed for heavier vehicles with larger brake systems, DFC Heavy-Duty Brake Pads deliver exceptional braking performance in harsh conditions. DFC Heavy-Duty brake pads are exclusively engineered and formulated to withstand extreme heat, heavy duty operation, frequent stopping, or towing.

PATENTED HOOKED BACKING PLATE TECHNOLOGY
s2_Patented_Hooked_Backing

All DFC Heavy-Duty Brake Pads comes with an advanced Patented Hooked Backing Plate Technology that mechanically bonds the friction material to the backing plates. This reduces the chance of pad edge lifting and pad delamination that can lead to noise, vibration, rust-jacking and pad break down.

100% POST CURED AND SCORCHED
Cured & Scorched

After the compound is pressed onto the backing plate, each DFC Brake Pad is 100% post cured to ensure stable friction performance. Each pad is then scorched to remove uncured bonding agents to minimize the need for initial break-in period and increase stopping power from the initial stop

UNDERLAYER
Underlayer
  • Promotes better friction to plate adhesion, minimizing noise.
  • Acts as a thermal barrier by minimizing the heat transfer from the pad into the caliper, reducing the possibility of fluid boil.
