It goes without saying that brakes are extremely important to any car, no matter how slow or fast it may be. And they’re not only about being able to slow it down or bring it to a halt – they also need to provide a good, consistent feeling to the pedal as well as the best stopping power, as even a few feet can make a difference between avoiding or engaging in an accident.
In recent years, technology has advanced quite a bit, with even low-end models featuring discs all-around and carbon-ceramics being optional in many sports cars, and standard in high-end ones. However, braking isn’t just about brakes, as the car’s weight and tires also play a huge part in the process.
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.
