NORTHAMPTON, U.K. — EBC Brakes Racing – the motorsport arm of EBC Brakes –launched its new titanium motorsport brake pad shims for a range of applications.

The reusable perforated shims offer impressive heat insulation between the brake pads and caliper, in turn dropping caliper temperatures up to a massive 90°F, as well as reducing the onset of brake fade and improving the lifespan of piston seals.

Best suited in dealing with the extreme temperatures found in motorsport, EBC Brakes Racing’s titanium brake pad shims are available now for a wide range of high-performance car applications.
