PBR – Axxis brand friction formulations have been specifically designed to provide optimum braking characteristics for your specific vehicle. Our Australian based engineering staff works diligently to continually develop, improve and create new formulations, and approves every formulation under the PBR - Axxis brands. Our brake pad and rotor complete brake kits work equally well together to provide you with a smooth, vibration free braking experience.
We recommend that rotors be machined (or turned) as a routine part of every brake job; but make sure your installer does not resurface a rotor beyond recommended thickness. Rotor thickness variation and surface irregularities can lead to brake noise and vibration. Even very small irregularities, difficult to detect with precision instruments, can cause serious brake shudder and will lead to premature pad wear. As an alternative to turning your rotors, consider one of our complete brake kits with both pads and matching rotors. You may also choose to replace your rotor with one of our recommended replacement or upgraded drilled/slotted rotor, depending on your application.
All our brake parts are Original Equipment Manufacture specs with no modifications required. You could do it yourself if you have the right equipment and the right knowledge. Brake systems on today’s vehicles, especially with ABS, are extremely complex and require specialized equipment and knowledge for the correct installation and maximum performance. We suggest you use a qualified brake products installer that many of our retailers can recommend. Ask for an inspection of your rotors and calipers to determine if they need replacement or repair.
The key to selecting the right brake pad for your car and to achieving maximum braking efficiency is matching your driving style and vehicle type with the right brake pad formulation. PBR-Axxis has several brake pads available. See the specific recommended applications based on your driving style and vehicle type for each formulation to make your choice.
We offer a variety of the highest quality and performing brake pads for most Domestic, European, and Asian sedans, sport coupes and many pickups, sport utility vehicles and crossover utility vehicles.
Brake pads should last from 25,000 to 70,000 miles, depending on the application and usage. Pads such as our ceramic formulations are extremely high performance, and deliver optimum braking performance, but will wear quicker than our other pads. If you feel that your brake pads are wearing out prematurely you may need to install heavier duty pads. The main cause of premature wear is high temperatures caused by braking on steep terrain, towing of heavy loads and constant braking, which increases braking temperatures and reduces the life of brake pads. Wear varies by formulation and driving style.
Your brakes should operate with a minimal amount of noise. Some noise is normal, but excessive squeal, screech, grinding, or groaning means that your brakes need attention. They could be worn out and cause severe damage to your brake rotors. Also, using the wrong formulation for your driving style can cause noise in your brakes due to excessive heat.
If the brake pedal pulsates, or if the steering wheel or the entire vehicle shakes or vibrates when the brakes are applied, then the disc brake rotors may need resurfacing or replacing. More serious problems such as a loose component or a faulty steering mechanism can also cause vibration.
PBR - Axxis brake pads exactly replace the original equipment pads your vehicle came with from the factory.
Here are our recommended Break-In Procedures:
BREAK-IN PROCEDURES After installing new brakes, they need to be broken-in properly. To condition friction and rotors correctly, the following procedures should be followed:
1. Excessive heat will be generated.
2. Resins will burn.
3. Loss of braking efficiency could occur.
PBR -Axxis brake pads are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for the life of the pad. Due to variances in driving conditions and operators, there is no warranty on pad wear.
