Glass bead blasting as an additional finishing treatment for disc rotors
From now on you can get some of our brake discs including a finish treatment of bead blasted. The glass bead blasting is a mechanical surface treatment, which is perfectly suited for achieving an equal, uniform. Scale and initial colors of the pre-heat treatment are safely removed after this process. The surface is thereby not only cleaned, but also easily compacted, thereby increasing the resistance to stress corrosion cracking. The blasting material used is absolutely ferrite-free.
This method has the advantage that the braking time significantly decreases compared to conventional brake discs and thus the full braking force is available quicker.
In addition, another pleasant side effect is that the the brake discs now have sharp edges coming from production, and the whole aesthetics are improved. In the area where the brake pad rubs on the wheel, the normal grinding pattern is produced.
