ECtype / EXTRA Cruise
Better brake performance! Less brake dust! Yet affordable!
  • Made for cruising on the street and highway with better brake performance
  • Longer pad life compared to OEM
  • Low level of brake dust and brake noise
  • Helps for a longer disc life
  • The friction surface of the brake pads are scorched to improve the bedding-in process
  • Mechanical brake pad sensors are installed (Only for models which originally come with sensors)

EC type
Is it better to change the brake pads and brake discs at the same time?
EC type ƒOƒ‰ƒt
  • The radar chart represents a comparison of each characteristic between DIXCEL products and general OEM products.
  • Above values are based on actual test results.
    Anti-Noise and Anti-Dust values are tested and calculated after a proper bedding-in procedure has been completed.
The dust amount
  • The dust amount of DIXCEL EC
    (after 1,000 km mileage)
  • The dust amount of OEM pads
    (after 1,000km mileage)
Testing data showing the performance differences of the EC-type pads and OEM pads.

The extra series has the brake performance of a sport brake pads with a price equivalent to OEM pads.
To actually test the performance differences, a braking test was done with an stock Toyota Alphard.

The testing method is rather simple. The car goes through full braking from 80km/h. The distance from the braking point to the point where the car comes to a complete stop is measured.

The distance from the braking point to the point where the car comes to a complete stop (Distance in meters)
Test 1 Test 2 Test 3 Test 4 Test 5 The average of the 3 middle numbers
(excluding the max. and min numbers)
Normal 21.80 21.00 19.60 23.20 22.80 21.87
EC 19.70 17.60 17.80 21.00 17.30 18.37

The result, the EC-type has an average of 3.5 meters shorter braking distance compared to the OEM.
