FS Mintex Xtreme front brake pads

Post by BenTomm17 »

Quoted from the packaging which contained the brake pads: "Mintex Xtreme high performance brake pads are derived from race series formulations yet designed specifically for use with high performance road cars and modified vehicles. These advanced friction materials form the basis of the Mintex X-Series range.

"Mintex Xtreme high performance have been designed to give high performance braking on front and rear applications. The X-Series formulations have been developed to provide enhanced performance from cold, up to and above 500 degreesC, with lower dust levels than most OE applications. Compared to many ceramic-based pads, Xtreme medium metallic pads offer superior stopping power." Also: "Platinum powder coating - A high density platinum silver finish is applied to Mintex Xtreme brake pads to provide a durable anti-scratch finish, highly- resistant to surface corrosion. High Performance Shim - The foil shim applied to the back plate of Mintex Xtreme brake pads uses an advanced acrylic-adhesive to create a direct contact between the brake pad and the caliper piston. Longer-lasting than conventional adhesive shims, the Mintex Xtreme shim helps reduce vibration and off-brake noise.
"Friction Material - Mintex Xtreme brake pads use a range of unique friction formulations, known as X-Series materials: X-1, X-2, X-3, or X-4. Each formulation has been designed to suit specific vehicles, front and rear- axle braking systems. Their high stability / low-fade characteristics, together with excellent high-temperature integrity make them ideal for high-performance and modified brake systems." Whew!
Bought some years ago from Bavarian AutoSport for $49.95. Never used, went with e-34 540i set up instead. $36 shipped anywhere in Continental US. Pay-pal ok.
