Hawk Brake has utilized world class technology to develop and manufacture superior disc brake and clutch materials for the Automotive/Racing industry.
Hawk products include Ferro-CarbonTM, CarboticTM, Carbon-Carbon and full metallic disc brakes and clutches. Hawk Brake's persistent development of racing friction will not only set new standards, but will also greatly enhance the quality, performance and integrity of your racing programs!
FERRO-CARBONTM Racing Friction
Ferro-CarbonTM is a unique, high-tech friction material developed and manufactured by Hawk Brake for the racing community. All Ferro-CarbonTM materials exhibit non-fade performance and have been evaluated up to and beyond 1,800 degrees F. Each material offers lower wear rates and higher torque values than all other competition materials available on the market today.
