Surface Transforms are experts in the development and production of carbon-ceramic materials and the UK’s only manufacturer of carbon-ceramic brakes for automotive use. The company's principle activity is exploiting proprietary technologies to create innovative, lightweight, high energy-dissipating braking system materials for high-performance applications. This includes automotive and aircraft brakes. Surface Transforms has extensive in-house engineering and manufacturing capabilities, including the facilities for manufacturing carbon-ceramic brake discs.

Whilst the carbon-ceramic brake discs you find on production road cars conventionally use discontinuous (chopped) carbon fibre, ST interweaves continuous carbon fibre to form a 3D multi-directional matrix, producing a stronger and more durable product with 3x the heat conductivity of standard production components; this reduces the brake system operating temperature, resulting in increased life of components and maintaining the brake performance.

Surface Transforms has developed unique patented Carbon-Ceramic technology that provides the ultimate braking performance for road and track that offer:

  • Weight savings of up to 70% (typically 20kg of unsprung weight) 
  • Improved handling and driveability
  • Improved NVH (less noise, vibration and harshness)
  • Improved performance (in both wet and dry conditions)
  • Reduced brake wear – giving increased life
  • Corrosion Free
  • Outstanding performance, even from cold
CCST Carbon ceramic brake discs

Surface Transforms has developed performance brake packages for some of the most demanding vehicles around, including:

Porsche GT2, GT3, Turbo and Cayman
Ferrari 430 and 458
Nissan GTR R35
Aston Martin V8 Vantage
