Overview

ACT Clutch Kit with ACT Heavy Duty Pressure Plate and ACT Performance Organic Street Disc

ACT Heavy Duty Pressure Plates provide increased torque capacity, durability, and extended clutch life. What makes ACT Pressure Plates the highest standard in the industry? First, ACT manufacturing always begins with new units. ACT Pressure Plates are not rebuilt from worn out parts. Second, pressure is increased the right way. Altering the geometry alone is not enough.

Instead, ACT engineers a stronger diaphragm. ACT diaphragms are heat-treated using an exclusive 3-stage process and the release bearing contact area is hardened to reduce wear. Third, ACT designs the pressure and release travel of the unit to be in the optimum working range. Finally, ACT assures consistency and precision by using proven assembly procedures.

Every unit ACT produces is accurately balanced and tested. Most ACT pressure plates are also available in ductile iron, offering strength and safety for high RPM racing. ACT Street Discs are designed for smooth engagement, quiet operation and improved durability using only the best organic, spring center designs.

When a special ACT Performance Organic Street Disc is available, the suffix "SS" will appear. These discs use special steel backed performance linings designed to withstand high heat and abuse. Most of these "SS" discs are also modified for quicker shifting.

What is all the hype about different lining materials available? ACT still contends that nothing can beat a good quality organic disc for street use. Virtually all the premium sport car manufacturers use organic discs. Actual product may vary slightly from image.

About ACT Parts & Accessories

ACT's mission is to serve our customers in an extraordinary way with business excellence, outstanding product quality, and exceptional value which meets even the most challenging needs of our customers. ACT leads the industry in performance clutches and flywheels by manufacturing an extensive product line, including single disc clutches, twin disc clutches, carbon clutches and flywheels. Our Mission is to advance a family of people committed to innovation, measurable results and well developed systems of operation which provide adventure, quality and efficiency. Each ACT product is unparalleled in strength, durability and materials. ACT products combine all the features needed in a performance clutch or flywheel with many different combinations to choose from. Materials used from design to production provide the platform for a solid engineered part. ACT provides quality that lasts, materials that work and processes that perform to ensure calculated results. Simple yet advanced. Finite Element Analysis: ACT uses powerful Finite Element Analysis (FEA) computer software to test and evaluate products in a virtual environment. The FEA software accompanies the latest CAD and 3D solid modeling software used by ACT's research and development department so that numerous design alternatives can be considered long before coming to market with a new product. ACT's FEA software mechanical stress, heat transfer, thermal stress, vibration and buckling analysis under virtually any load condition which can help identify potential problems in a particular design. Custom Data Recording Press: ACT uses a computer operated data recording press to cycle, test and record pressure plate clamp load, working range, release load and release travel. Each pressure plate is load tested and cycled to ensure parts meet ACT's strict quality standards. This special equipment makes testing accurate, efficient, and thorough so both existing parts and prototype designs can be quickly evaluated. This equipment also allows ACT to create custom setups for customers and give them a dyno sheet for that exact assembly. Laboratory Testing: Utilizing the latest in laboratory testing, ACT continues to experiment with different friction materials and design alternatives for future product development. Friction material tests help ACT to evaluate coefficient of friction, fade, wear, and recovery under different load, speed and temperature conditions. Laboratory burst testing and material testing is performed on parts for SFI certification on a scheduled basis and regularly performed on new parts.
