Comparing EBC Brakes: Green Stuff vs. Yellow Stuff

When you need new brake pads, you need them now, and comparing them can be difficult and time consuming because the differences don’t jump out at you. That’s where we come in. In this post, we’ll compare two types of EBC brake pads, Green Stuff and Yellow Stuff, and tell you how they differ and the benefits of each so you can make a decision that will work for your specific truck and driving conditions.

Comparing EBC Brakes: Green Stuff vs. Yellow Stuff

Green Stuff Brake Pads

EBC Brakes Green Stuff brake pads are designed for trucks that see heavy braking because they’re resistant to brake fade, which is when a brake pad loses stopping power due to excessive heat from heavy and/or repeated use. Green Stuff brakes also have the following benefits:

  • Designed for Heavy Braking: Brake pads resist brake fade on vehicles that see heavy braking.

  • Medium Dust: Less dust than OEM brake pads means low wear and tear on rotors.

  • “Brake-In” Coating: Brake pads are coated with a red “brake in” coating, so there is no need to break them in according to specific guidelines after installation.

Yellow Stuff Brake Pads

The high-friction, high-heat formula of EBC Yellow Stuff brake pads is designed for trucks that see extreme braking, frequent towing, and/or for trucks that are equipped with larger tires and wheels, because they’re highly resistant to brake fade. When used for this type of driving, you can see up to 30% improved stopping power over OEM brake pads. Other benefits include:

  • Designed for Extreme Braking, Frequent Towing, Larger Wheels & Tires: High-heat, high-friction formula is best for vehicles that see frequent towing or have larger wheels and tires.

  • Wide Heat Range: Able to absorb more heat in heavy braking situations, such as aggressive driving, towing and hauling.

  • “Brake-In” Coating: Brake pads are coated with a red “brake in” coating, so there is no need to break them in according to specific guidelines after installation.
