Brake rotors crack and warp. They also cause vibrations as a result of internal stresses and uneven (hard and soft spots) in the rotor’s areas. When exposed to thermal or mechanical from the over-tightened or unevenly lug nuts, the brake rotors tend to crack or warp. Truing or turning the brake rotors can alleviate the existing warps when the rotors are cold.
However, you can’t solve the problems when the rotors are hot, because the uneven tempers and stresses will be still present within the substrate. The only long term and sustainable solution is to either completely replace the rotor or have it cryogenically treated. The cryogenic treatment of brake rotors is the most cost-effective way of increasing the brake rotor’s safety and life.
What are the benefits of the cryogenically treated brake rotors?
- Stress free.
- Elimination of vibrations.
- Dissipating of heat evenly and quickly.
- Reduced brake rotor wear and warping.
- Reduced brake rotor cracking and pad wear.
- 300% increased lifespan.
- The strength is increased.
- The material’s hardness is unaffected.
- Elimination of chipping, heat cracks, and breaking.
- 30% decrease of the energy output.
Why is cryogenic processing of brake rotors environmentally friendly?
- Worn out brake rotors end up in landfills.
- Extended life of brake rotors decreases the overall pollution.
- Cryogenically treated brake rotors and pads are less likely to shed metal along sewer systems and roadways. As a result, aquatic
- life and waterways are protected.
- Copper pollution represents a major problem for rivers, oceans, and lakes. Brake pads contain copper that can be worn off and get
- in touch with the sewer systems.
