Product description

Powerbrake has worked with renowned brake pad manufacturer Mintex U.K. to source a range of the highest performing friction materials that fall within ECE Reg 90 specifications (which make these materials legal for use on public roads in South Africa - as well as all of our export markets around the world). The R109 compound is a medium-ferrous, asbestos free disc brake pad material. This compound offers strong brake performance over a fairly wide temperature range. The R109 compound is suitable for use on the front axles of light-mid weight passenger cars. It is particularly recommended for compact cars where a high friction co-efficient is preferred.

5 of 5 Mintex pads on Golf7 GTI August 4, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Midrand, GP South Africa  
Awesome service from Powerbrake, was very helpful in getting me the best pads for my car and driving style. Pads were delivered promptly and were easy to fit. They were cheaper than OE pads, and work so much better. I can stop with confidence, without any squeaking. I have not experienced any brake fade since bedding-in, and have minimal brake dust. I would definitely get them again.

5 of 5 Golf 7 GTI OEM disk & pad repalcement... November 27, 2015
Reviewer: Werner van den Heever from Pretoria, Gauteng South Africa  
Since picking up my first set of matched disks and pads for an Opel back when you were still operating from a house in Pretoria east I have only had good experiences. The latest set was fitted to my new GTI @ 14K KM, oem brakes are not what they used to be unfortunately, luckily there is Power Brake to safe the day!! Keep up the good work, my other golf's disks and pads are up for replacement soon... :)
