Technical Leaders
The Pagid name is synonymous with technical excellence. For more than 60 years, we have been at the forefront of innovation in brake friction.
Every year, we invest over €30 million in product research and development.
It means that we are continually bringing new and better solutions – helping vehicle manufacturers to meet the ever increasing challenges of performance, sustainability and automation, and supporting the aftermarket with the latest OE specification products.

Tested to the highest Standards
Every Pagid friction product meets ECE R90 – the benchmark European quality standard for brake friction. But we go much further to ensure maximum safety.
We have a worldwide team of 300 test engineers and technicians.
And every friction formulation undergoes a rigorous testing programme that takes into account vehicle performance, loads, driving speeds and conditions – with 1,000 hours on a dynamometer, and 300,000 km of real-life road testing.
