The following compounds are available for the Performance Friction PF0396.


Performance Friction’s 08 compound is one of PFC’s newest offerings and has gained immediate favor in Endurance Sportscar, and GT racing due to its performance in applications where smooth initial bite is a must. The 08 Compound features a slight friction rise with temperature, excellent release and modulation characteristics, and very low abraded disc wear. In addition to its considerable performance, 08 wears the longest of all PFC pads and easily matches the wear of the other competitors with a much higher bite.


Based on the out-going 01-compound, Performance Friction’s 11-compound takes the same great high-bite and torque but with even better rotor and pad wear characteristics and improved bite, modulation, and release. Exhibiting a very high initial bite and torque, very little temperature induced torque rise follows. Less torque scatter exists for improved modulation with excellent release, helping to eliminate wheel lock at the end of a stop.
