EBC Redstuff Ceramic Brake Pads

EBC Brakes’ Redstuff is a premium ceramic-granule enhanced brake pad, available now for all modern cars, including hatchbacks/hot hatches, sedans, and muscle cars. They are now available for trucks and SUVs under the new 2022 ED Plus brake pad range from EBC.

Ceramic pads are NON-METALLIC (therefore non-magnetic) and contain ZERO steel fiber, which is what causes brake dust.

EBC Redstuff has always been fully compliant with ecological and environmental demands and includes no toxic ingredients such as lead, nickel, copper, or antimony sulfides, and certainly no asbestos.


RedStuff Premium Low Dust Brake Pads

Redstuff is the EBC premium low dust pad for fast street driving on all types of cars and is even now available for truck and SUV with our ED range . When making the choice between Green, Red, Yellow, or even Blue grades for any vehicle.  This pad selector chart is helpful;


Redstuff is an aramid fiber ceramic particle-enhanced premium brake material. We do NOT use ceramic fibers in any of our pads. Redstuff is free of sulphides or lead and a low dust material, and fully ECE R 90 brake safety tested and approved.

There is always “Some:” dust from brakes as they wear but the major advantage of the EBC range is that we use zero steel fiber in our pads and instead use less aggressive aramid fibers such as Twaron®  and Kevlar® which are easy to wash off wheels and do not etch into wheel lacquers or alloy

EBC Redstuff is also a long-wearing pad and as such takes approx 500Kms to fully bed down and show its full performance. To assist the bed-in, however, all EBC pads are surface coated with our Brake-in ™ pad brake in accelerator compound.

Braking Performance

Wear Life



High Performance lowest dust rating pads for Prestige imports and faster street driving.

There are two reasons our customers love Redstuff, First because they are the lowest dust pad we have encountered by reducing dust by 60-90%. Plus the minimal dust you see is very easily removed with a simple sponge wash as it contains no steel fibre particles as in all other pads. Second, they brake like an alligator right from cold (as good as Original pads or better) and just get better as they heat up.

This material is an aramid fibre-based brake compound enhanced with ceramic particles.

Technical Info

Being a hard wearing pad, bed-in times can be as long as 1000 miles and drivers must be patient until the pad takes up the shape of their disc (brake rotor). This is a truly impressive fast road pad for repeated heavy braking.

It emits far less dust than semi-metallic pads and has been proven to stop a passenger car/sedan/sport compact/hot hatch 13 metres quicker than OEM pads from 100mph/160kph. Features EBC Brake-In surface coating which conditions rotor surface and accelerates pad bed-in. Nominal friction coefficient 0.5 with approx. 50% dust reduction. Most EBC Red Ceramic pads are approved to ECE R90 brake safety regulation.
