New titanium shims are a must-have for high-performance braking

Coming soon for most popular fitments, these new perforated titanium heat insulation shims have been shown in laboratory tests to reduce heat transfer through the pads to the caliper by around 90°F.

Tests were conducted, with results shown in the below chart, to compare the heat transferred with plain shims or perforated shims and EBC race materials were used. However, the physics remains sound and any semi-metallic pad should benefit from shim heat insulation.

Most caliper seals are damaged at temperatures over 130°C/270°F, which means anything to reduce heat getting to them is good news.

Laser-cut from titanium sheet and perforated to reduce conductive heat transfer, the EBC titanium shims come in sets of two or four depending on caliper type and are for popular front fitments only.

Shims are applied to your pad set and can be re-used at pad change unless damaged.

It would be helpful if you listed part numbers and availability for the QV and Ti (veloce) models then just spam the forum coming soon and most likely not available for the Giulia.

We will be updating with part numbers when available, but it has just recently been confirmed that these productions are going ahead, so i thought it may be interesting for some readers and useful to get the word out.

Apologies if you see this as spam, it was not intended to be.
