Ceramic Disc Refurbish Service

We can offer a Ceramic PCCB disc refurb service. It will take approximately 30 days to refurb your discs, or if they are in stock, can be sold on an exchange basis (subject to your discs being of a refurbishable condition).

The discs will be refurbished using the following process;

The Refurb process in detail:

  • The discs are weighed and depending on wear, the rotors are x-rayed and examined for structural damage.
  • After that any brake pad residue or contaminates is chemically steamed off.
  • The rotors are machined until they are level
  • The rotors are vacuum soaked in polymeric carbon – 2 – 3 times.
  • The next step is to pyrolyze the rotors at 1100°C.
  • Now the discs are siliconized at 1500°C (only CCB rotors – Porsche PCCB, AMG-Mercedes, AUDI)
  • Now follows the final resurfacing of the top layer by using a 2 ton sanding machine.

The disc now has gained about up to 180g weight and is at desired value once more.

Each disc receives a documentation of the processing steps, weights and other data.

In most cases, used ceramic brake discs sent to us have only surface wear and are excellent starting material for restoration. After milling off the surface, the core is then strengthened by infiltration with a special polymer material. Layer by layer is rebuilt in several stages. The disc must be heated repeatedly to 1100 degrees Celsius in the high temperature oven. The brake disc is then siliconized at 1800 degrees Celsius to make the new surface as hard as possible. After the highly complex restoration, the brake disc is clearly heavier and has often regained its target weight. The restoration service gives refurbished discs the best properties, making them equal to new ceramic brake discs. The new surface’s high level of hardness makes the refurbished ceramic brake discs equal and sometimes better than new brake discs in terms of brake performance and durability.

A lot of customers believe, that the new layer, that is applied onto the worn rotor, could brake away under high stress. Due to the pyrolysis infiltration, which creates a strong structural bond between the two materials, this is not possible. This is the reason why we grant you warranty of 12 month for the structural durability of our work.
