Should new discs and pads be bedded in?

The bedding procedure is an important step when installing the GT systems or new rotors and pads.
Correctly bedded pads form a transfer layer of material on the surface of the disc which improves overall "bite" and performance. Without proper "pre-bedding" that simulates the correct heat and torque loads seen in actual driving conditions, a pad's true potential cannot be realized. This process will also ensure that the pads will produce a rotor finish with a consistent transfer layer which prevents "judder" from occurring.

The Brembo Bedding Memo should be followed when installing a new Brembo system or new discs and / or street pads.

For race friction and / or track use, please contact us for detailed information regarding the appropriate bedding procedure to follow.
