If you’re even slightly interested in cars, you’ll know just how important the braking system is, and have heard of carbon ceramic brakes. For the everyday driver, not much thought is given to the brakes: if they work, they work, right?
But it turns out that there are a plethora of braking options, and for performance-minded drivers, the braking system is one of the first to get upgraded when modding a car to safely go faster. When it comes to high-end performance cars, most manufacturers have moved away from traditional brake pads and rotor materials in favor of carbon ceramic pieces.
Carbon ceramic discs have proven that they offer better performance under strenuous driving conditions, but are carbon ceramic brakes really worth it? In this post, we’ll take a look at the different types of brake pads and delve into the inner workings of carbon ceramic brakes.
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.
