The EBC Web site has a full listing of all its product applications, offering many different pads for different types of usage. The reps recommended the softer yellow pads for our application due to the greater stopping performance. However they also offer a harder green pad that is designed for long-lasting performance. Softer brake pads have always been inherently better at stopping the vehicle. But since the EBC pads are Aramid fiber-based they also have superior longevity, where the old standard semimetallic pads can wear quickly. Kevlar, which is commonly found in bulletproof jackets, is an Aramid fiber and known for good resistance to impact, abrasion, chemical contamination, and thermal degradation, all properties desired in a brake pad too.
