Pagid RS pads are specifically developed for motorsport use and are produced in several different compounds. The material types available for any pad reference will depend on its vehicle application and alternative motorsport uses - for example rallying, short circuit racing or endurance racing. Subject to the requirements of 'Regulation 90' they may also be fitted to road cars (RS4-2 and RS4-2-1 in particular) where exceptional braking performance from high speeds is required. This may be particularly relevant to driving in European countries with unrestricted roads.

Pagid RS4-2-1
A carbon-based high performance road compound with a medium friction level, also suitable for light track use, RS4-2-1 was designed as the ultimate user friendly road material to satisfy the demands of prestige sports car manufacturers such as Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati. Capable of driving effectively around town with low noise and control, then capable of stopping the same vehicle from 200mph on the test track. More >>>>
Pagid RS4-2-2
A carbon based high performance road compound with a medium friction level, RS4-2-2 exhibits good wear characteristics and is also very easy in terms of disc wear and low brake dust. The perfect combination of low temperature performance, good initial bite, low disc wear and user friendliness for high performance road use. In comparison to RS4-2-1 this compound offers slightly higher bite and generally higher friction level, and a slightly more responsive pedal feel. More >>>>

Pagid RS4-2
Known to many as “PAGID Blue”, few brake friction compounds are as highly regarded as PAGID RS4-2. Originally developed in the late 1980's, RS4-2 remains Pagid's biggest selling and most versatile friction compound. It is a carbon based compound with a medium friction level, excellent low temperature response and remains very stable over a wide temperature range up to 600°C. Drivers report excellent pedal-feel that gives confidence in extreme braking situations. More >>>>
Pagid RS4-4
A carbon based friction material developed from RS4-2 but with a progressively increasing friction curve, giving it lower friction than RS4-2 below 300°C and higher friction above 300°C. Particularly popular in Porsche Club Racing and has been fitted as OEM on several high performance road vehicles, such as the 993RS and GT2. In road applications this compound exhibits low brake noise. More >>>>
Pagid RS5
RS5 is popular for lightweight racing cars due to the stable friction properties. It is a ceramic based friction material with a medium level of friction and smooth, strong initial bite giving instant response. The initial design criteria was for a material specific for F3 but feedback shows that this compound is a great all rounder. RS5 has been the preferred choice for many of the F3 teams since 2005.

Pagid RS7-1
A compound specifically designed for use on rear axles, RS7-1 has a very stable friction coefficient of 0.35 from cold up to 500°C. It has a very linear in-stop behavior with no ramping up or drop off in friction during a stop. The characteristics of this compound are ideally suited for the rear axle of front wheel drive cars but also works well on rear wheel drive and 4 wheel drive cars. More >>>>

Pagid RS14
RS14 is the most popular ceramic based Pagid friction material. Compared to RS4-2 this compound offers a good increase in initial bite and average torque, it has very good modulation characteristics and offers good control against wheel lock at all temperatures. It is particularly successful in short to medium distance circuit racing, as well as gravel and tarmac rallying. More >>>>

Pagid RS15
RS15 is a ceramic based formulation developed from RS14 with an increase in average friction of approximately 20% and even greater bite and braking ability. Suitable for applications where very high levels of braking torque are required, or situations were very high disc temperatures are expected. The increase in bite is also often very useful on cars without servo assistance for instance that are known to require high pedal forces to brake the car efficiently. More >>>>

Pagid RS19
RS19 is the original PAGID endurance friction material, designed primarily for endurance racing due to long pad life but has become successful in sprint and short distance racing due to consistent performance and user-friendliness. RS19 has gained an enviable reputation at the world’s most grueling endurance racing events, such as Le-Mans, Daytona 24 hours, Nurburgring 24 hours, Spa and Silverstone 24 hour races. RS19 is a multiple winner at all these events. More >>>>
Pagid RS29
RS29 is a development of RS19, with a very similar friction coefficient but with improvements in initial bite offering quicker response and slightly more temperature stability at the upper levels of the temperature range. Developments in raw material selection and compounding have resulted in improvements also in pedal feel and feedback, helping with modulation particularly on lighter applications. RS29 provides very good levels of performance and response at all temperature levels, only slight temperature inputs are required to bring the pad up to its optimum performance level. More >>>>
