Bedding-in: this is a particularly important process for all compounds and crucial for the RC compound. The pads are bedded in by applying the brakes lightly several times and ending with a firm bite leaving a pause between one squeeze and the next. This will produce the correct heating and cooling cycle needed to prepare the system. The duration of the bedding-in period depends on the compound: generally longer for organic compounds than for sintered.
