PRODUCT DETAILS

EBC Brakes' Titanium Brake pad shims.

Designed to reduce caliper overheat and seal damage.

Titanium shims are a must-have for high-performance braking

These new perforated titanium heat insulation shims have been shown in laboratory tests to reduce heat transfer through the pads to the caliper by around 90°F.

These tests were conducted to compare the heat transferred with plain shims or perforated shims and EBC race materials were used. However, the physics remains sound and any semi-metallic pad should benefit from shim heat insulation.

Most caliper seals are damaged at temperatures over 130°C/270°F, which means anything to reduce heat getting to them is good news.

Laser-cut from titanium sheet and perforated to reduce conductive heat transfer, the EBC titanium shims come in sets of two or four depending on caliper type and are for popular front fitments only.

Shims are applied to your pad set and can be re-used at pad change unless damaged.

How to install

Shims must be flat and sit without any gapping on the rear of the brake pad.

If your pad set is supplied with any other shims such as the rubberised shims on most stock pads, these MUST be removed before fitting titanium shims to avoid a pad over-thickness situation.

Simply prize the old shims off to break the adhesive seal with a blunt edge screwdriver or similar, and once removed lightly, sand the rear of the pad to remove any excess glue or surface irregularities. The new titanium shims MUST be snugged up against the pad backing plate without any debris between to avoid long pedal/brake sponge.

Titanium shim sets for sliding calipers contain only two shims and these must each be applied to the pad located next to the piston. Titanium shims for multi-piston calipers are supplied for all four pads in the axle set.

What’s wrong with rubberised shims?

First of all, most race pads are not supplied with any shims and EBC’s titanium shims will reduce heat transfer in the higher temperatures of racing, they are therefore a worthwhile investment.

Non-race caliper (stock) pads feature a rubber coating, plus they are not perforated and simple physics will of course tell you that reduced surface contact reduces conductive heat transfer. The EBC titanium shims are of course perforated for this reason.

Rubberised stock shims are from steel with rubber and adhesive coating and titanium shims are much harder and have a less compressible shim design.
