"Bedding" new brake pads


While researching what brake pads to buy for my Boxster, I noted that many of you prefer to use the OEM pads available from Porsche (Textar) and Pagid pads. So, that's what I bought. I bought Textar pads as well as rotors and hardware from Sunset Imports for a fair price. The Textar pads did not come with any "bedding" procedure, so I spent much time digging up dozens of opinions about how to bed new pads.

Confused, I contacted the corporation that makes both Textar and Pagid. They sent me the attached procedure which is really quite simple. For these brands, I would advise this procedure unless there is a specific procedure provided with the new pads, written by the manufacturer.

For what it's worth, I followed the procedure and my new front brakes are great. I was surprised to learn what they said about rear brakes..... See attachment.

This is good. I think what you were seeing in other bedding procedures, Bob, were procedures for Pagid track and racing pads. They do need to get quite a bit hotter to transfer properly to the rotor, outgas and compete curing under heat, pressure and torque. As such, they talk about braking from 100+. Not a great practice for the street. I always buy extra sets of race pads, and break them in at some point during a track day, then pack them up for when I need them.
