Would you spend $8,000 to $12,000 for an optional brake package on your next vehicle? What if I told you they would never fade, improve gas mileage and maybe need a change every 180,000 miles? Ceramic-composite or carbon-ceramic brake rotors and pads offer these advantages and more.
While it may seem like these systems are untouchable like some supermodels, this expensive option on some high-performance vehicles could be the brake of the future if they manage to bring the costs down. Ceramic-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 leads 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.
