Street-use Brake Pads with Ultra Low Brake Dust
This listing is for a pair of Front Dixcel M-Type brake pads for :
- Audi A4 – [ B8 ] – (1.8T / 2.0T / Sedan / Avant)
Significant reduction of brake dust without sacrificing stopping power!
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.
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.
The above chart represents evaluation values of our product in 100 phases in comparison with genuine pads of the test model. Values of genuine pads show 50. Above values are calculated under test condition. Values of Durability and Disc life are subject to change by continuous use under low temperature (generally less than 150 degrees Celsius). Values of Anti-Noise and Anti-Dust are calculated after a thermal history goes (not under brand-new condition).

Decelerating G= 0.5G, fixed temperature=200°C. The friction co-efficiency is measured at different speeds. When the friction co-efficiency varied, the performance would be different at low speed or high speed, and the pads then become hard to deal with. Obviously it has to work not only at low speed but most importantly while braking from a high speed. On the other hand, if it works too efficiently at a high speed, it is extremely dangerous because the tires will lock up too easily. The M type tends to be more stable than OEM products or after-market products.
The temperature transition
The friction co-efficiency is measured at different temperatures with the fixed speed of 100Km/h and the fixed deceleration 0.5G.
The M type is especially effective on ordinary roads where the brake disc temperature is around 50-150°C, and is designed to perform with maximum potential at the winding road and emergency stops on the highway where the temperature possibly comes up to 300°C-400°C. OEM products work efficiently at general temperatures, but they do not work sufficiently at high temperatures, fading starts at over 300°C, and they do not work well at all.
We are continuously adding new products to our website, so if you can’t find the part listing for your car please contact us for more information.
