WELCOME TO THE
HOME OF CARBON CERAMIC BRAKES
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
