The Materials We Use For Clutch Discs

The Materials We Use for Clutch Discs

With decades of experience in the industry, and an extensive background in manufacturing process, Mantic Clutch offers a variety of clutch disc materials depending on the application and goals for the vehicle. 

In our Mantic 9000 Series (twin and triple disc system) we offer two main types of clutch material, organic and cerametallic.  Each of the materials serve a direct purpose for driving style. The twin organic configuration holds up to 1,230 Nm of peak torque while the triple holds up to 1,845 Nm of peak torque. For Sprung Centre Cushioned Cerametallic and Rigid Centre Undampened Cerametallic, the twin configuration holds up to 2,050 Nm of peak torque while the triple holds up to 3,075 Nm of peak torque. All are friendly on the street and allow a strong advantage over the stock OE style clutches. The features and benefits help to determine which is best for your application, as follows: 


Perfect for the everyday driver with more power than stock offering smooth engagement and release. An organic clutch will stand up to hard use, but it won’t be able to take repeated heavy abuse because it will overheat.  Break in period is at least 300 kilometers. In the Mantic 9000 Series (twin or triple) for most applications this features more torque capacity and heat resistance than stock while retaining excellent drivability.  Organic material gives smooth engagement, excellent drivability, and moderate coefficient of friction: Resistance to excessive heat build-up. Organic material clutch discs are mostly used in OEM applications.


It is a combination of ceramic and metallic material. It has an excellent coefficient of friction and provides exemplary heat resistance. The material bonds very well to itself even in the thinnest of areas. Cerametallic material also has a consistent wear pattern, which greatly aides in the life of the clutch.It is more aggressive than organic but it serves the purpose with higher torque capacity and more durability. This is our most popular option and is the favorite friction material for those who drive their car daily yet head to the track on the weekends. Most who choose the cerametallic option are normally forced induction, nitrous or turbo applications.

Pedal effort remains relatively low, approximately 12-15% increase over the OE clutch pedal feel yet the strength in material is still capable for any heavy duty usage. Due to the type of material, this clutch will almost bite down instantly, perfect for quick precise shifting to help maintain RPM levels and keep power to the ground. Break in period is at least 500 kilometers, depending on driving conditions. 

Every clutch kit has its own advantages over another, with drivability and torque capacity as the most preeminent factors. The choice of Friction Material will have a significant effect on drivability. We work very hard to match the right material with the intended use of the vehicle to best serve our customers.

The Best Option

When choosing a clutch you should always select the friction material that fits your needs based on power levels, type of driving and future goals. Our organic material will handle a wide variety of uses, including daily street driving and with limited racing. Cerametallic is the most durable option for the serious builds that require the best clutch without upgrading to a full race style system. If your running a supercharger, heads & cams, single/twin turbo or even the fun loving nitrous, we suggest running the cerametallic material.
