The Mintex brand is the most famous when it comes to
motorsport. Through intense Research and Development Mintex materials
cater not only for Original Equipment and Aftermarket needs but at the
other extreme for competition purposes. It is from motorsport that the
latest family of Mintex materials have been developed.
Known as C-Tech, these materials cover a whole spectrum of vehicles
from a typical small hot hatchback for normal day to day use, through
to a fully race prepared 700 bhp racing machine.
is the material for fast road use as well as light competition such as
karting, hill climb and single seater racing cars.
One of the main characteristics of this material is the ability to work
from cold, which gives the user the confidence of a standard material on
the first application of the brakes. The benefit of M1144 is experienced
as the temperature within the brakes starts to increase. M1144 will
remain stable and consistent through to 450c where a standard material
at this temperature will most certainly start to fade. The bedding
in procedure for M1144 is the same as any standard material i.e.
steady braking for the first 50 miles, avoiding emergency stops. All
M1144 pads are supplied with fully branded C-Tech anti noise shims and a
is purely designed for competition use and under no circumstances should
be used for normal road applications. Applications such as Group A and N
rally cars and circuit saloons best suit this material. M1155 has a
similar friction level to M1144 but remains consistent to a maximum
operating temperature of 550-600c. Like M1144 there are no special
bedding in procedures for M1155.
is again purely competition use only and is suitable for rally and
saloon/sports car endurance racing. The friction level is higher than
that of M1155 but remains consistent to temperatures of 700c. Again no
special bedding in procedure is required.
