Production vehicles are typically fitted with brake discs. They work by pressing a pair of brake pads against either side of a disc (sometimes called a rotor). that sits inside each wheel, producing enough friction to slow the spin of the tires.
Carbon ceramic brakes work through the same mechanism as standard brake discs, but the discs themselves are made from a very different material, through a complex process. Rather than cast iron or steel, carbon ceramic brakes are made from a composite material.
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.
