Cost-effective restoration of worn ceramic brake discs

Experts count on the REBRAKE restoration service from FOXX Automotive

Cost-effective restoration of worn ceramic brake discs

Carbon-ceramic brake discs are the result of a highly complex production process that can take 20 days until the product is finally ready. All steps of the production process are monitored and documented to ensure the high standards of the car industry are observed up to the final inspection. The first step forms the green body of the ceramic brake disc ring. The successive high temperature production steps first product carbonisation, and then siliconization in a a high vacuum. The complex production process comes at a price. It“s no wonder that ceramic brakes are not only highly effective, but also very expensive. Sports car owners often have to pay at least 12,000 Euros for their brake systems if they choose the ceramic variant.

Ceramic brake discs are the result of a complex production process

The advantages of ceramic breaks are compelling and far surpass normal brakes with grey cast iron brake discs:

– quick response even in wet and extreme conditions,
– corrosion-resistant,
– low weight,
– heat-resistant,
– long-lasting.

If the garage found wear on the ceramic brake discs, there would be a nasty surprise. Under heavy loads, grooves and severe abrasion can occur. Replacing a worn disc with a new one could easily cost 5000 Euros or more. But now there is another solution. The REBRAKE restoration service has made FOXX Automotive an international sensation that has given ceramic brakes a further boost.

The REBRAKE restoration service has made FOXX Automotive a sensation throughout the world.

The benefits offered by ceramic brake systems have long been enjoyed by not only racing drivers and owners of super sports cars or high horsepower top range limousines. Ceramic brake discs are gradually becoming part of the mid-range too. Experts say that ceramic brakes will continue to gain ground. The advantages are clear. And finally of course because prematurely worn ceramic brake discs can now be effectively, quickly and cost-effectively restored.

Simply restore particularly heavily used ceramic brake discs

The main component silicon carbide gives the ceramic brake discs their extreme hardness

Simply restore particularly heavily used ceramic brake discs

Ceramic brakes are very stable.

The main component of the ceramic brake disc is the chemical compound silicon carbide (SiC), also known as carbon. Silicon carbide makes the brake disc particularly hard and resistant. It gives the discs their special properties. The carbon fibres give the material extra strength and reinforcement, as well as the necessary fracture toughness. Ceramic brakes are also characterised by a low weight, extreme hardness and stability. And even under maximum stress. It“s no wonder that ceramic brake discs were first used in racing cars and then spread to series production sports cars and top-range limousines. Ceramic brake discs are very long-lasting and can last up to 300,000km, depending on usage.

Carbon-ceramic brake discs have many advantages

A car“s brake system is its most important safety system. They are always adapted to the model, specific to the car. Particularly if the brakes are subjected to high thermal loads, the higher fading stability of ceramic brakes makes them superior. Normal brake systems that use grey cast iron brake discs lose braking power under high loads. Further advantages of ceramic brakes:

– better steering behaviour,
– better brake responsiveness,
– much better resistance to corrosion.

Finally it“s possible to refurbish ceramic brake discs

According to usage and age, the friction layer of a brake disc can become prematurely worn. Before the REBRAKE restoration service from FOXX Automotive existed, worn brake discs had to be replaced with new ones. It was expensive, costing at least 5000 Euros per brake disc. Thanks to the REBRAKE service, the refurbishment costs only a fraction of that. Using a highly complex and proven procedure, the worn surface of the ceramic brake discs, irrespective of the brand or diameter, is milled off after an initial inspection. The newly applied extremely hard surface provides properties that match or surpass those of new brake discs. After the final grinding, the brake disc is weighed again and all the individual process steps are comprehensibly documented so that every step can be traced.

How does the restoration of ceramic brake discs work?

Restored brake discs are at least as good as brand new ones

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.

The initial inspection of the ceramic brake disc is decisive for the restoration

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.

Porsche first used carbon ceramic brake discs in 2001

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

All the properties of restored carbon ceramic brake discs are at least as good as new ones

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.
