Choose your compound by application:
Blue 9012 ('E' Compound Code)* Medium/High torque and temperature compound with excellent brake modulation. #1 selling brake pad material for SCCA. * Medium/High Torque and Temperature Compound * Excellent Brake Modulation * #1 Selling Brake Pad Material for SCCA.
DTC-60 ('G' Compound Code)* High torque with less initial bite than DTC 70. Superior release and torque control characteristics. Brake pads designed for cars with high deceleration rates with or without down force. Recommended for use with DTC-70 when split friction between front and rear axle is desired. * Less Torque and Initial Bite and Compared to DTC-70 * Provides Outstanding Lighter Weight Vehicle Performance * Perfect for Drivers who Prefer Split Friction Levels Between Front and Rear Axle * Excellent Release and Modulation Characteristics
HT-10 ('S' Compound Code)* Intermediate to high torque with a smooth initial bite. Very consistent pedal feel. Excellent modulation and release characteristics. * High Temp Performance, 300-1300ºF / 149-871ºC * Intermediate to High Torque with a Smooth Initial Bite * Very Consistent Pedal Feel * Excellent Modulation and Release Characteristics
DTC-70 ('U' Compound Code)* Extremely high torque with aggressive controllable initial bite. Superior release and torque control characteristics. Brake pads designed for cars with high deceleration rates with or without down force. * Very Controllable High Torque with Smooth Initial Bite * Excellent Release and Modulation Characteristics * Unbeatable Pad and Rotor Wear
HT-14 ('V' Compound Code)* Very high torque with aggressive initial bite. Excellent modulation and release characteristics. Brake pads designed for cars with extremely high deceleration rates and down force. * High Temp Performance, 300-1400ºF / 149-971ºC * Very High Torque with Aggressive Initial Bite * Excellent Modulation and Release Characteristics * Brake Pads Designed for Cars with Extremely High Deceleration Rates and Down Force
*Note:* Hawk Performance burnishes its HP Plus brake pads as a final step in the factory, but all brake pads have to be bedded-in with the rotors (new or used) that they will be used against. Properly bedding-in new brake pads results in a transfer film being generated at the pad and rotor interface to maximize brake performance.
