How does the restoration of ceramic brake discs work?

The process of restoring brake discs is very innovative.

News has spread that worn, even well-used ceramic brake discs can be restored by the unique procedure. The results can be seen- all the properties of refurbished ceramic brake discs are at least as good as those of new brake discs. The initial inspection is decisive for the restoration. Every worn brake disc delivered to us must pass this test. Clear exclusion criteria for our close inspection are damage affecting the core of the brake disc. If the x-ray examination reveals hairline cracks, the disc cannot be refurbished because only the surface of the disc can be restored.

Once the upper layer has been milled off, the refurbishment procedure is carried out. Material is added to the ceramic brake disc at 1100 degrees Celsius until it has reached its target weight. The new surface is extremely hard and gives the brake discs the properties of a brand new disc. The refurbishment of ceramic brake discs does not depend on the car make or model. Experts are certain that now it is possible to restore ceramic brake discs, they will become increasingly prevalent. In 2001, Porsche first fitted carbon ceramic brake discs in the sports car model 911 GT2 of model series 996.

the much better steering and responsive behaviour, toughness, corrosion-resistance, extreme durability and much lower weight of ceramic brakes in comparison with normal grey cast iron brake discs means that more and more manufacturers are following suit and fitting the innovative brake system in their cars. The secret to the success of ceramic brake discs is their special material properties. The brake discs comprise a core, the so-called disc body and friction layers that are applied to both sides. Silicon carbide is the main component of brake discs. It is responsible for the material“s particular hardness. Carbon fibres provide the necessary toughness and fracture resistance.

Unique worldwide: Restoration of worn brake discs

Unique worldwide: Restoration of worn brake discs

It’s innovative to restore ceramic brake discs.

The internationally unique service from REBRAKE – cost-efficient restoration of worn ceramic brake discs – is the reason why the innovative brake system is gaining increasing popularity. Restored ceramic brake discs fulfil all the properties of new brake discs. They are often even better than brand new ceramic brake discs. Ceramic brake discs are highly effective, biting, extremely stable and expensive. It is primarily super sports cars and limousines that use ceramic brakes. The innovative brake system is gaining increasing popularity. Experts say that mid-range cars will soon be fitted with ceramic brake discs. And there are good reasons why:

– the considerably lower weight of ceramic brakes in comparison with normal grey cast iron brake discs is noticeable during usage. They can achieve a weight saving of up to 40kg.
– Ceramic brakes are not only light, but also particularly hard and stable. They are reliable in extreme situations and particularly long-lasting.

None of the deficits of grey cast iron brake discs under heavy load apply to ceramic brake discs. The secret lies in their composition: polymer composite material strengthened with carbon fibres. The only thing against ceramic brake discs is their high purchase price.

Ceramic brake discs are reliable and particularly long-lasting.

Manufacturers calculate the average lifespan of ceramic brake discs as approximately 300,000km. Depending on usage, brake discs can also wear sooner. Wear is evident from grooves that form on the surface of the brake discs. Before the existence of REBRAKE restoration service from FOXX Automotive, brake discs had to be replaced. Replacing a worn brake disc would cost 5000 Euros or more. The refurbishment service does not depend on the brand or type of the ceramic brake disc. Already refurbished brake discs are usually available, so that customers don“t have to be without their car for long.
