Bedding Discs and Pads prior to Racing
Because AP Racing Carbon/Carbon brake materials have lower operating temperatures compared to other carbon brake materials, it is easy to achieve running temperatures without the problem of glazing the rubbing faces. Blanking the brake ducts is not required in dry conditions. When bedding the driver should apply hard brake pressure in short applications. Take care not to drag the brakes under lighter loads as this may result in glazing. If this occurs and the driver reports there is inadequate retardation, then the pads should be removed from the calipers and both these and the discs should have the rubbing faces de-glazed with coarse emery paper and dust thoroughly removed.
