AD SERIES

DESCRIPTION:

The AD sintered compound is optimal for street bikes, dual sport, touring, trial, cruisers. This compound makes for a perfect OE replacement due to its versatility. It is recommended for riders that do not ride really hard, but do want the good stopping power of a sintered brake pad when needed. The wearing rate of this sintered compound is 20% lower than other known sintered or semi-sintered brake pads in the same category.

The AD series is designed for very low abrasive interaction with the rotor and offers quieter braking due to the ceramic composite material.

Friction materials contain metal-ceramic and typical iron; finer additives are added to the base of the iron compound to achieve optimal friction properties.

AD disc pad formulation

GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS ABOUT GOLDFREN BRAKE PADS

  • All the GOLDfren brake pads are made with sintered metal-ceramic and ceramic-carbon friction materials
  • Sintered brake pads offer no brake fade when operating at high temperatures and in wet conditions
  • Sintered brake pads provide superior stopping power and longer life compared to other brake pad types such as: carbon organic, organic, or semi-metallic organic
  • Sintered brake pads are made by fusing together metallic particles under high temperatures and pressure using a pressed powdered-metal technology
  • GOLDfren is a pioneer in sintering, using advanced and progressive powder metallurgy methods
  • Designed for both wet and dry applications
  • Sintered brake pads deliver exceptional braking performance and durability under the most demanding conditions
  • All the materials used are lead and asbestos free
  • GOLDfren® is the brand for high-end quality aftermarket performance disc brakes
  • Compound series  available are: AD, S3, K1, K5, K5-LX, S33, GP5, GP6, PG7
  • Application of each compound is based on our brake pad application chart or the rider's preference and riding style
  • The sintered friction material is soldered to the copper lined steel backing plate, hence, separation (which can happen with organic pads) is virtually impossible

NOTES:

  • Replacement of brake pads should be done in dry clean conditions and preferably by a professionally qualified person. If the friction material comes in contact with oil or brake fluid and the liquid soaks into the pores of the friction material, a catastrophic decrease in friction coefficient (braking performance) could occur
  • Please beware that sintered brake pads require a bed-in period after installation. Allow some extra braking distance during the bed-in period. For more information on bedding your brake pads see our FAQs page #6
  • Braking performance is significantly influenced by the quality of the braking surface of the Disc rotor; also by the age and quality of the brake fluid, and by the correct choice of complementary type of brake pad
  • To achieve the perfect brake effect, we recommend using GOLDfren brake pads in conjunction with GOLDfren rotors and brake lines because of its excellent quality common friction properties
  • Brake with the products developed by GOLDfren®

CAUTION !!

Braking effects are affected by a range of factors:
The condition and age of the brake fluid; the condition of the brake caliper; the condition and quality of the brake lines; the condition of the brake disc....
