ABOUT US

The chemical abbreviation for SiC is Silicon Carbide. SiC Brakes denotes this chemical compound as it is one of the primary chemicals that make up carbon ceramic brakes (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Silicon Carbide).

 

Being a technical company, we are able to provide custom solutions to various different industries including aerospace, trains, commercial vehicles, racing and performance applications.

We offer a variety of formulations including custom hybrid ceramics classified as Ultra High Temperature (UHT) Ceramics offering:

  • Proprietary Formulations

  • Substantial increase in temperature resistance

  • 20% Increase in material strength over traditional carbon fiber reinforced silicon carbide brakes

  • Better dry and wet performance

  • Customized Thermal Conductivity Properties allow for better brake pad compatibility and smaller annulus.

  • Patent Pending manufacturing process for very competitive pricing 

 
 

Benefits of Carbon Ceramic

Carbon Ceramic Brakes have many benefits over traditional cast iron brakes. From 50% or more in unsprung-weight reduction to faster stopping distances, this technology can be used in multiple industries from industrial transportation to high performance vehicles.

There are many differences between cast iron and carbon ceramic brakes. We like to categorize them into four primary advantages:

  1. Carbon ceramic brakes have almost no brake fade.

  2. More friction means better stopping power.

  3. There is roughly 50% in unsprung weight reduction for quicker turns and better gas mileage.

  4. Carbon ceramic brakes can last about four times longer than cast iron rotors.

Because the material of carbon ceramic is so much lighter than traditional iron discs, you actually have a small reduction in fuel costs every year. Not only is the weight reduction a key factor to reducing CO2 emissions, but the durability of the material increases the life of the rotor by 4 times, producing significantly less fine powders in the environment through wear and tear.
