|GOLD SPONSOR:||Brembo SGL Carbon Ceramic Brakes SpA was formed in 2009 as a joint venture by Brembo S.p.A. and SGL Technologies GmbH and is active in the field of designing, developing, manufacturing and selling braking systems in general and specifically brake discs made in carbon ceramic material and installed on high performance cars; the Company is also active in the research and development of new materials and applications.|
The joint venture has two manufacturing plants, one located in Stezzano (Italy) and one in Meitingen (Germany).
As the world leading producer of carbon ceramic brake discs, the BSCCB product portfolio currently includes 2 types of carbon-ceramic discs:
Carbon Ceramic Brakes (CCB) Produced in Meitingen
CCB is a disc made up by a core of ceramic material, reinforced with carbon fiber and covered by an additional ceramic friction layer on both breaking surfaces.
Volkswagen, Porsche, Audi, Bentley, Lamborghini, Bugatti, AMG.
Ceramic Composite Material (CCM) Produced in Stezzano
CCM disc is a floating disc made up by a core of ceramic material, reinforced with carbon fiber. In comparison to CCB, CCM disc braking surfaces are not covered by an additional ceramic friction layer.
Ferrari, Aston Martin, Corvette, Chevrolet, Lexus, Nissan, Pagani, Maserati, Jaguar, Alfa Romeo, Mc Laren;
A special feature of the carbon ceramic brake discs is represented by the ceramic composite material. This material is obtained through a particular process, which gives the possibility to add or deposit a layer of material to improve the friction coefficient on both the braking surfaces.
The core and the additional friction layer are made by a composite material, which is composed by carbon fibers (reinforcement), silicon carbide and metallic silicon (matrix).
Silicon carbide, the main matrix component, assures great hardness for the composite material while carbon fibers guarantee high mechanical strength resistence, providing the fracture toughness required in this kind of applications.
The resulting quasiductile properties of the ceramic composite material combine the useful properties of carbon fiber-reinforced carbon (C/C) and polychrystalline silicon carbide ceramics. The deformation at breaking point of C/SiC materials ranges from 0.1 to 0.3 %. This is an exceptionally high value for ceramics.
The entire characteristic profile makes fiber-reinforced silicon carbide to a first-choice material for high-performance brake systems: in particular the low weight, the hardness, the stable characteristics also at high pressure and temperature, the resistance to thermal shock and the quasiductility provide long life time of the brake disc and avoid all issues, which are typical for cast iron brake discs.
