Mtype
Street-use brake pads with ultra low brake dust
  • Significant reduction of brake dust without sacrificing stopping power!
  • Superior brake control made possible by a stable operating friction level
  • Braking power that is NOT abrupt; Braking power that is proportional to brake pedal pressure, allowing smooth braking, and a nice ride for the passengers.
  • Designed to minimize disc wear, to help prolong the life of the disc
Friction Materials Non asbestos organic / Copper Free (2021 regulations) etc

Is it better to change the brake pads and brake discs at the same time?

All about brake dust

Please take a look at the comparison images of the two wheels. Clearly, the car using the M-type has little brake dust on the wheel.
The benefit of the M-type is not just being freed from constant cleaning of the wheels. Most brake dust is not from brake pad shavings, but shavings from the brake disc. The M-type brake pads have low brake dust, meaning the pads are shaving off less from the brake disc. This leads to the prolonging of the life of the brake discs. The characteristic of metal shavings (dust) is its vulnerability to humidity; humidity corrodes the metal shavings. So without the proper maintenance, the metal shavings can cause the wheels to corrode.

With the M-type brake pads with minimal brake dust, there is no need for the frequent cleaning of wheels.

Please experience for yourself the superior brake performance that the OEM pads lack with the ultra low brake dust M-type brake pads.

Stopping power with low brake dust

At first glance, the statement above may seem contradicting. DIXCEL is able to research & develop such a product because we are an aftermarket brake manufacturer. DIXCEL is not a brake manufacturer that only specializes in motorsports applications. Our research & development goes beyond motorsports, to ordinary street-use sedans, mini-vans, and luxury cars.

The consumers who drive normally wanted a brake pad that has low brake dust without sacrificing braking power.

DIXCEL is involved in motorsports to constantly improve and develop our products. Motorsports allows us to test our products in extreme conditions which cannot be achieved in normal uses.

After a careful material selection process, the testing of the M-type brake pad was done using heavy cars like the Lexus LS600h and Toyota Alphard.
The chosen materials passed repeated extreme brake tests from speeds of 180km/h. The M-type brake pads are not just a low dust brake pad, brake pads that offers improved braking performance.

"Clean reliable stopping power"

This was the main concept when the M-type was being developed; low dust and improved brake power.

  • ※The repeated braking tests from 180km/h were done on a race circuit.
  • ※The M-type is NOT designed for circuit-use. Use on race circuits can result in increased wear and decrease in performance.
  • ※The Z and R series brake pads are recommended for circuit-use brake pads.
