With over 100 years in the production of original equipment friction products, Mintex has tested and developed many different types of friction compounds in the quest for improved braking performance. After more than a decade of evolutionary development, the Mintex friction compounds utilized today offer the best elements of both semi-metallic and ceramic friction. This evolutionary development has enabled Mintex to produce a wide range of vehicle specific, low-metallic friction to suit all applications and brake system combinations.

Mintex Red Low-Metallic formulations offer low dust and little noise. The pads have high friction levels even when cold but still have a long life and are easy on rotors. They also have high temperature resistance which keeps the friction rates consistent and allows for fast fade recovery.

Use this category to find the braking components like brake lines, brake pads, brake rotors, and brake fluids that will help you bring your vehicle back under control.
