What if I told you the brakes on your next car would never fade, improve gas mileage and last 150,000 miles? You might think I was full of it or on drugs. But, ceramic-composite or carbon-ceramic brake rotors and pads offer these advantages. But they might increase the price of a new vehicle $9,000-15,000.
Ceramic or carbon fiber 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.
