S3 SERIES

DESCRIPTION:


The S3 sintered compound is optimal for street bikes, dual sport, touring, cruisers. It's recommended on applications with rather larger engines or for people who ride harder than average and want the great stopping power of a sintered brake pad.

The S3 series is designed for low abrasive interaction with the rotor and quieter braking because the ceramic composite material. It has an HH friction rating and performs better at higher temperatures than our AD compound.

Friction materials contain metal-ceramic with a bronze-graphite and non-metallic friction additives are spread evenly on the base fine bronze body to achieve optimal friction properties.

S3 disc pad formulation

FEATURES:

  • Very high static friction coefficient
  • Minimal difference between wet and dry braking performance
  • Good abrasive resistance
  • Thermal stability up to 450C, and even up to 800C over a short term
  • Low abrasive interaction with the brake rotor material
  • Longer life compared to organic and kevlar composite materials

RANGE OF APPLICATION:

  • Recommended for larger street bikes
  • For riders who demand a bit more than average from their bikes
  • Recommended on both front and rear brakes
  • Works well on both dry and wet conditions
  • Could also be used on the front brakes for off-road bikes and ATV

MATERIAL OPERATING PARAMETERS:

  • Specific pressure: p < 3.0 Mpa
  • Sliding speed: V < 45 m.s-1
  • Constant maximum temp.: 450C
  • Short time maximum temp.: 800C
  • Counter-surfaces: steel disks

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....
