HC+800 is a premium Performance Track Only brake pad. HC+800 has more bite than both NS and B-Spec and has excellent fade resistance. Capable of operating at temperatures up to 800°c, this pad will handle almost all serious braking conditions outperforming the Ferodo DS2500 (500°C), Mintex M1144 (450°C) and even the Carbotech xp8 (732°C) at these temperatures.
HC+800 is extremely capable in all competition environments so only use this pad if you are involved a serious track day, rally and hill climb enthusiast. Along with temperature capabilities, HC+800 is renowned as a ‘drivers pad’ with unmatched driver feel and control.
HC+800 Brake Features:
When brake pads operate at high temperatures, high pressure gases can be created in the pad and can cause a 'gas layer' between the pad and rotor. This can make the driver feel like the brakes have lost performance as the brake pedal feels the same, but the car won't slow down as normal. This phenomenon is known as 'fade'. Project Mu have a unique design to offer the gases an escape route.
Brake pads manufactured without a chamfer on the leading edge of the friction material, are more likely to produce unpleasant noise. This noise known as brake squeal is actually a high-frequency vibration created by the friction between pad and rotor. The vibration can manifest in caliper, rotor or suspension vibration. This 'problem' is reduced or eliminated by the chamfer on the pad material of selected shapes.
Project-Mu brake pads are subjected to heat treatment as part of the manufacturing process. This process 'burns out' unwanted materials in advance, reducing the gases that can cause fade. As a result, Project-Mu brake pads only need light 'bedding in' to match the pad to your rotor surface.
Brake Pad Structural Stability
Brake pads are subjected to huge pressure from caliper pistons in unequal proportions across the pad. Brake pads must remain flat to offer optimal performance so Project-Mu uses only the highest grade quality steel at the correct thickness to ensure this stability. Project-Mu pads are up to 20% stronger than most of their competitors.
