We produce more than 500 types of brake pads, made of a couple of own friction mixtures.
Sinter’s own R&D and production department can always provide custom friction mixtures per request. With our rich knowledge we can help the customer experiment and decide on the specification.
All our brake pads are available in the following 3 materials:
RENTAL – S-205
This material is designed for low wear and with a stable friction coefficient.
- LONG-LASTING PERFORMANCE
- ORGANIC FORMULATION, LOW COPPER CONTENT
- FAST BEDDING IN
- SUITABLE FOR RENTAL APPLICATION
RACE – S-222
This material is designed for maximum go-kart braking loads. It performs best with grey cast iron braking disks.
- EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE
- POWERFUL INITIAL BITE/li>
- SEMI-METALLIC MIXTURE/li>
- SUITABLE FOR RACING APPLICATION/li>
ELITE – S-230
New racing formulation for the most demanding racers. Great modulation provides total control of your brakes.
- OVERALL CHAMPION
- RACING COMPOUND
- NO COMPROMISE
- GREAT MODULATION
EXTREME PERFORMANCE BRAKE ROTORS
Braking rotors are among the newest products in the Sinter product line, and a lot of customization is possible. Our R&D is focused heavily on new composite materials.
HIGH CARBON GREY CAST IRON
We have partnered with the local university and metallurgical laboratories to develop the new high carbon grey cast iron rotor.
These high-performance cast-iron brake rotors work perfectly with Sinter brake pads – available both as OEM and aftermarket.
A CLUTCH FOR EVERY STANDARD
Sinter produces centrifugal and lamellar clutches in the form of replacement parts, or as performance upgrade units for your go-kart. We drive our development of new friction materials forward to improve our clutch offering and make it suitable for even the most demanding racers.
LAMELLAR ARAMID COMPOSITE + MMC CLUTCHES
We minimized the weight of the clutch construction by combining a special friction material with the lightweight MMC middle plates, constructed with aramid – that is how we lowered the weight by 60% compared to a standard middle plate.
- DYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS
- EXCELLENT TEMPERATURE RESISTANCE
- LONG LIFE
We strive to lower the weight of the clutch plates as much as possible. We achieve that by using lightweight alloys and composite materials for the base plates, and friction materials with no metal parts for the friction interface.
We use a combination of aramid + MMC for extremely lightweight clutch product.
We offer centrifugal clutches for all engine types – Iame, Tm, Rotax and others.There are two materials available:
1. Organic, for a non-sliding clutch in general applications, with good temperature resistance and long service life.
2. Special high temperature resistant material, for an extreme performance racing clutch with long service life. It can endure aggressive starts and performs well in all conditions.
Sinter’s own R&D and production department can always provide custom clutch components per request. With our rich knowledge we can help the customer experiment and decide on the clutch shape and material used.
MORE THAN 50 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
IN ALL CATEGORIES
In its 50 years of existence, Sinter has been proud to supply brake pads to the winners of over 50 world go-kart champions. For us, and the industry as a whole, this is a noteworthy achievement that the young generations today would say is “next level”. And that’s exactly what we do, namely provide “next level” materials for the best go-kart teams and rental businesses in the world, as well as OEM manufacturers.
Our unique approach to each individual racer and his needs, along with the possibility to develop unique braking materials for specific target groups, gives us the chance to improve rapidly – and become better with every season, and even between seasons if needed!
Karting has been a part of my life for almost 20 years.Traveling and competing in different continents all over the world thought me several life lessons and shaped me to the person I am today. For racers, braking is as important as acceleration. That is where we need top materials to slow down aggressively or to control the kart through the corners. With Sinter braking solutions I was able to get that edge and surpass the competition. I choose Sinter for victory!” / 2019 Slovenian National champion & kart driver of the year / 2019 Sportstil Cup Champion / 2019 Austrian Vice Champion / 2019 3rd at the Rotax Grand Finals - World Championship
