A Look Into the History and Advantages of Carbon Ceramic Brake Discs

Out of all the different components and systems that make up a modern car, brakes are not as flashy as a turbocharged W16 engine or a “gas guzzling” V12. However, all that power is completely useless if you can not bring your car to a stop in a safe, controlled manner. Brakes work by converting the kinetic energy of a moving car to heat energy by means of friction. In this article, we will look at some of the advantages of modern day carbon ceramic brakes.

 

Surface Transforms (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. ST utilises our proprietary next-generation carbon-ceramic material – CCST – to create lightweight brake discs for high-performance applications, including automotive and aircraft brakes. Surface Transforms has extensive in-house engineering and manufacturing capabilities, including the facilities for manufacturing carbon-ceramic brake discs.
