Compound Descriptions:

90 compound 

This compound has been a favorite of race driving schools because of its modulation characteristics. Used exclusively at race schools such as Bob Bondurant, Derek Daly, and Jim Russell because of its forgiving nature.  90 Compounds is very easy on the discs, yet has higher cold bite than 83 compound along with less torque rise for improved modulation.  90 Compound has been replaced by 97 in most applications, but is still available in a limited number of applications.

   90 Recommended Applications: 
   Recommended for applications that demand good wear and modulation.
   GT
   SCCA Racing
   Porsche/BMW Club Racing

97 compound 
Although its initial development was through CART Champ Cars, this compound has also been a favorite of sportscar endurance racing.  97 compounds have won races in CART, ALMS, Grand Am, and ASA. It is also a preferred pad for touring car and rally. Higher bite than 90 compound with slightly higher torque. Great modulation. Very flat torque curve with enhanced release characteristics. 97 compounds are very easy on the discs, with very low wear. This compound is becoming a favorite of driving schools because it shares similar characteristics with 90 compounds but with even less wear. Highly recommended as a general-purpose pad for all venues. (When out, refer to 01)

   97 Recommended Applications:
   Recommended for applications that demand excellent wear and modulation.
   NASCAR Short Track and Road Course Rear

01 is one of the most popular race compounds in the PFC's arsenal. Slightly higher bite and torque than 83 compound for the first 2/3's of the stop. At the end of the stop, 01 compound has less torque scatter for improved modulation with excellent release and a flat torque curve. 01 compound is very easy on the discs with very low wear, on par with 83 compounds.

   01 Recommended Applications:
   01 is recommended as an all-purpose pad in a wide variety of applications.
   NASCAR Short Track and Road Course

06 Compound 
06 compound pads are very similar to PFC 01 for both bite and torque, within 4% of those values. Excellent release and control with very low wear. Very low abraded disc wear with a “powdery type” transfer layer. 06 pads are an excellent alternative to other brands of endurance compounds but with much higher performance. Excellent for club racing type shapes as well as OE brake calipers where ABS is used.

    06 Recommended Applications: 
   Endurance Sportscar and GT 
   NASCAR Short Track and Road Course Rear 
   NASCAR Speedway and Intermediate Rear 
   All Oval Track Race series Rear 
   SCCA Racing 
   Porsche/BMW Club Racing 
   Track Day and Driver Education events

08 compound
08 compound is one of PFC newest and have gained immediate favor in Endurance Sportscar, and GT racing due to its performance in applications where smooth initial bite is a must. 08 have a slight friction rise with temperature, excellent release and modulation characteristics, and very low abraded disc wear. In addition to its considerable performance, 08 wear the longest of all PFC pads and easily matche wear of the other competitors with much higher bite.

   08 Recommended Applications:
   24-hour Endurance Racing
   Endurance Sportscar and GT
   NASCAR Short Track and Road Course Rear
   NASCAR Speedway and Intermediate Rear
   All Oval Track Race series Rear
   SCCA Racing
   Porsche/BMW Club Racing
   Track Day and Driver Education events

The release and modulation characteristics are second to none. Very low abraded disc wear with a fine micronic polished disc finish. Despite its considerable performance, 07 will have slightly better wear than 05.  This compound demands the most from the vehicle setup and is designed to handle the most severe applications. 

   07 Recommended Applications:
   For high grip, high down force, or severe duty applications.
   NASCAR Short Track and Road Course
   Indy cars
