specific formulations used in Eurotech are
more forgiving and offer an excellent pedal
feel.Eurotech comes complete with electronic
wear indicators and shims or gaskets where
required, and can handle temperatures up to
470 degrees Celsius, which is more than
enough to handle the temperatures
generated by most passenger vehicles.
Sometimes brake pads need a few
applications to warm up but the Eurotech
pads have great cold stopping performance.
The Eurotech range has more than 200
part numbers that cover most European
vehicle applications and is now available
from QFM stockists.
