New titanium shims are a must-have for high-performance braking

Coming soon for most popular fitments, 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.

Tests were conducted, with results shown in the below chart, 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.

Interesting product. Sadly, I went to the EBC USA site to see about purchasing a set of front pads (Yellow Stuff) for my car (2014 GT Track-Pack) that has Brembo calipers, and nothing was available for my vehicle. I was also considering these heat-reducing Titanium shims, but they don‘t seem to be available either. I must be doing something wrong.

They are currently going into production and will be available before the end of the year. This was an announcement that we will be offering them soon, sorry if that wasn’t clear. Will update with part numbers and photos/drawings as/when available.

with Your 2014 GT, the part numbers are;
