Apec Black delivers premium stopping power

Braking specialist Apec says its Black Braking range establishes a new benchmark in premium braking solutions, exceeding OE specifications. Meticulously designed for luxury and reliability, it caters to prestigious vehicle brands such as Audi, BMW, Land Rover, Lexus, and Mercedes, focusing on higher performance and SUV models.

Apec Black Brake Pads demonstrate superior resistance to fade, incorporating High-Pressure Treatment (HPT) scorching for enhanced initial fading and improved safety. Prioritising heat conductivity and dissipation ensures optimal braking efficiency. 

All Apec brake pads utilise the latest friction materials and the unique HPT scorching process, avoids crystallisation. This process enables Apec Brake Pads to deliver high braking performance more quickly than competitors, reducing bedding-in time. Moreover, HPT contributes to environmental friendliness by containing and treating harmful gases in the factory.

Designed for longevity, the Apec Black range incorporates manufacturing innovations that extend brake pad lifespan by up to 34%. From anti-rust coatings to durable compounds, these brake pads provide OE-quality longevity with a lifetime guarantee. Using a new generation of friction material developed by Apec, Apec Black’s Advanced Friction Technology (AFT) provides better performance, that stops quicker, that is quieter, longer lasting and is less susceptible to fade than the OE. 

The inclusion of SilentGuard Shim Technology suppresses Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH), enhancing the overall driving experience.

Apec Black Brake Discs complement the pads with their 2-Piece and Duo Cast designs, specifically crafted for premium applications. Achieving a delicate balance between form and function, these discs provide lighter, safer braking without compromising on performance or prestige.

In response to European CO2 regulations, Apec Black Discs address the market's 'light-weighting' trend, offering a reduction in disc weight of up to 20% without sacrificing durability or safety. The focus on reducing un-sprung mass maximises performance and handling for a driving experience that is both precise and exhilarating.

Apec Black Brake Discs' commitment to OE matching manufacturing practices and carefully selected materials ensures they can withstand extreme temperatures caused by friction. These discs conduct, dissipate, and disseminate heat through two-piece designs, mitigating thermal stress and distortion for a smoother, more reliable drive.

Apec says its Black Brake Discs and Brake Pads transcend conventional standards, embodying a commitment to quality, innovation, and meeting the challenges of evolving automotive regulations.
