A metal–ceramic friction material comprising a very sophisticated bronze-graphite full-metal mixture formulation with uniformly indispersed very fine grade metal friction particles, that is suitable for both dry and wet friction applications.

This formulation has been developed to provide the absolute optimum braking performance and durability under world class WGP Motocross and Enduro racing usage conditions.

Metal-ceramic friction material designed for friction on dry and wet conditions is produced applying advanced powder metallurgy method
The materials are becoming the leaders in the sintered metals domain.

K5-LX brake pads formulation

Metal-ceramic bronze-graphite friction material is an all-metal mixture designed for applications both on dry and wet conditions.
Finer metallic friction additives are spread evenly in the base fine bronze body.


  • High static friction coefficient.
  • Good abrasive resistance, and self cleaning capability.
  • High braking power to 500°C. (750°C. in bursts).
  • Low abrasive interaction with the brake rotor material.
  • Three(3) times +/- longer operational life compared to organic and Kevlar composite materials.

„K5-LX” friction material is Lead and Asbestos free.


  • this material was developed for using during off-road world championship
  • using front and rear brake
  • in using for front brake, there can be higher abrasion of pads
  • this material using riders of world championship of motocross and enduro


Specific pressure: P < 2.0 Mpa
Sliding velocity: V < 20 m.s-1
Constant maximum temp: 500°C
Short time maximum temp.: 750°C


  • Replacement of brake pads should be done in dry clean conditions, and prefereably by a professionally qualified person. If the friction material comes into contact with oil or brake fluid and the liquid soaks into the pores of the friction material, a catastrophic fall in friction coefficient (braking performance) could occur.
  • Braking performance is significantly influenced by the quality of the braking surface of the Disc rotor, by the age and quality of the brake fluid, and by the correct choice of Complementary friction pad material.
  • To achieve perfect brake effects we are recommending to use also brake wheels and hoses of the same brand as that of brake lining, i.e. GOLDfren®, because of excellent common friction properties
