What if I told you they would never fade, would improve gas mileage and maybe need a change every 180,000 miles? Ceramic composite or carbon ceramic brake rotors and pads offer these advantages – and more.
While it may seem like these systems are untouchable like some supermodels, this expensive option on some high performance vehicles could be the brake of the future – if the cost comes down.
Ceramic composite rotors are extremely durable. In fact, manufacturers claim that they’ll never need replacement – at least with “normal” driving. They’re also resistant to the kind of distortions and wear that lead to pedal pulsation – merely an annoyance in the “real world,” but a noticeable performance issue on the track.
Surface Transforms plc (LON:SCE) are experts in the development and production of carbon-ceramic materials and the UK’s only manufacturer of carbon-ceramic brakes for automotive use.
