Why Are There Different GPZ Friction Material Colors?

Why Are There Different GPZ Friction Material Colors?

The GPZ product line was originally the material that we used in our ZPaks, and as we got involved in making GPZ double-sided frictions, we realized that not every clutch pack needs to have the same material. The GPZ line of material has evolved to more than just one material; It is a material line that matches the needs of the application to the best suited material. For example, the forward clutch typically found in earlier transmissions such as 3 and 4 speeds is a statically applied clutch, so when the need to have a higher static friction material presents itself, we choose the best static material as opposed to a dynamic material. Having different GPZ material colors ultimately comes from the fact that GPZ materials designed for specific TorqKit applications are going to have different colors because the materials are not all the same. Keep in mind that the design of the material itself is what creates performance, rather than color of the friction material.
