They are sintered and consist of special compounds agglomerated through an adhesive-free sintering process. Due to the compounds used, the friction coefficient is higher than 0.7 already at 50°C (122°F), and does not fall below this threshold until a temperature of 400°C (752°F) is reached.
The lubricants added to the initial compound ensure consistent, smooth braking even when disc temperatures are high. This makes brake fading, i.e. the loss of braking efficiency, less likely. Abrasives also help to keep friction levels high by keeping the discs clean and removing deposits on the braking band.
RIGIDITY COMES WITH AGILITY
One of the most important presences in the Brembo group is the Marchesini brand, a leader in the research, design and development of wheels for motorcycles both for top world championships and road use.
Working together with Brembo on technological innovation, research into materials and manufacturing processes has resulted in iconic products which are sought after by thousands of enthusiasts because of their unique characteristics.
