EBC Brakes produce the largest range of brake pads and brake discs in the world, with over 5000 part numbers for every type of moving vehicle. EBC Brakes are made in one of its two specialist factories in the UK and USA. The majority of EBC brake discs or brake rotors are also made in the UK.
The motto at EBC Brakes is NOT to import any brake product from third world countries and to manufacture every piece possible in its own facilities.
Using a unique Aramid fiber technology for disc pad manufacture employing high tech products such as Dupont Kevlar and Twaron. Our products are years ahead of our competitors, most of whom manufacture using cheap steel fiber bases.
The use of Aramid fibers allows a higher degree of flexibility, enabling EBC Brakes to produce a quiet and long lasting range of products that can improve brakes, reduce rotor wear and greatly reduce brake dust found on wheels. With Aramid fiber technology only 4% of the pad is the fiber used for binding and production, in steel fiber technology up to 50% is cheap binding fiber.
All EBC Brake pads for highway use are tested to ECE R90 brake safety regulations and are considered a legal equivalent to and replacement for any Original Parts. The exhaustive R 90 procedures guarantee not only pad quality and performance on a model-by-model vehicle basis but also conformity of production at our plant.This means EBC parts are as good as, or in most cases BETTER than the original parts. On brake rotors the EBC product excels with its UK manufacture,made in modern series production facilities in the UK the EBC Brake rotor is cast using “Moulded out” tool patterns to produce a balanced design rotor core that prevents brake distortion and brake vibration. All rotors are precision machined, inspected, and tested rigorously before leaving our factory.
Many EBC sport rotors have recently been tested and awarded the much accredited TUV testing approval and given the German ABE number signifying the highest in quality for parts sold into Europe. If this product works at the Autobahn Speeds (which are unlimited) you can be confident that EBC Brake rotors will deliver on your car, truck or SUV in any country.
Through its team of R&D (Research and Development) Engineers EBC Brakes in its Bristol UK manufacturing facility continues to improve its product annually with the arrival of new raw materials and by rigorous testing on one of its five dynamometers to bring you the best in modern and classic vehicle brakes.
We are proud of our products, proud of our team that work for us, and intend to continue to develop our ideas based on British and US manufacturing of quality products for the educated buyer.
