Product Details


Designed for premium street cars up to 200 horsepower as a first level brake pad upgrade.

Independent tests at the UK vehicle certification test track (MIRA) showed this pad to stop 9 metres faster than standard aftermarket pads.

The new 2008 Greenstuff formulation has been upgraded to deliver a slightly softer pad with reduced brake noise and is fully shimmed, chamfered and slotted.

Dust rating is MEDIUM.


Independently proved to stop a hot hatch 13 metres faster than standard pads, the new EBC Redstuff ceramic enhanced formula produced in 2007/2008 features a new DUST REDUCED formula that has also been modified to overcome brake noise and reduce disc wear.

Redstuff is not a race pad and is intended for fastest street use on cars of 200bhp or above or as a low dust pad on premium cars.


EBC's unique wide aperture slots actually pull cool air under the pad surface and help pad and disc cooling. EBC's Blind Drilled dimples help break down surface gases but do not promote cracking, which has been shown to occur with "Through Drilled" discs

completely to the outer edge of the disc, which allows any dirt,dust gases, grit or debris from heavy braking to exit the pad braking area. This ensures flat and parallel wear of the pads throughout their wear life and use.

All EBC sport discs are gold zinc anodised to prevent the discs from corrosion in areas not swept by the brake pad. Optimum brake performance is realised after the zinc coating has been removed from the pad track area. Brake-InTM coating will remove this within 50 miles. It is possible that a small amount of noise is observed with sport discs. This noise gradually diminishes and at around 1,000 miles of road use the noise will be minimal. By nature of the way this product works, EBC sport slotted discs will always make "some" noise and this is not cause for concern, it is not a safety issue and it is not covered by warranty.

Over the years the brake market has seen many changes and many brands come and go. We have also seen many so called “Famous Names” resort to “Branding” products and having them made by licensees in “emerging market” locations. EBC has strongly pursued its philosophy that brake pads and brake rotors or brake discs are safety products and are best hand crafted and made with care and maximum focus on high quality rather than price savings and are designed and researched on an on-going basis in our own facilities rather than turning a high safety product into a commodity marketed price point product. We firmly believe that saving a few pennies on brake pads and brake rotors is false economy.

    EBC Brakes remains therefore committed to its exclusive UK and USA manufacturing.

    EBC has no less than 8 dynamometer systems in its two factories representing over $3 million investment in research along and with its 60 year pedigree of brake material blending you can be sure that brake pads bearing the EBC name will deliver and perform. Environment is equally important to EBC and brake pads made in our factories have every possible consideration for environmental protection.
