When it comes to brake rotors, you do have a choice – Centric.
CENTRIC Premium Brake Rotors
Centric proudly presents the best premium brake rotor in the aftermarket!
Manufactured to OE specifications using the same processes as the factory, Centric's brake rotors start with Original Equipment castings and vane configuration. Centric also ensures that the metallurgy of their castings are strictly held to OE specifications. The rotors are then straddle cut guaranteeing the most accurate machining process followed by double disc grinding to provide a double disc ground finish that ensures parallelism and provides a non-directional finish for better pad-rotor break-in. Centric mill balances during its inspection process. See Centric Part's rotor manufacturing process for more details. For many applications, Centric then adds their own Black E-Coating that is electrostatically applied ensuring even and complete coverage. This provides better rust protection from the elements and ensures a cleaner appearance through your wheels. See Centric rotors electrocoating process for more details.
Centric's Premium Brake Rotors Features:
All Centric Premium Brake Rotors have a run-out tolerance of within .0015” and a DTV (Disc Thickness Variation) tolerance of within .0005” ensuring smoother stops with reduced pedal pulsation.
With a balance specification of within 5.00 gr/mm, Centric Premium Rotors spin truer resulting in less vibration being felt by the driver when braking from all speeds.
Application Specific Castings:
All Centric Premium Rotor castings are application specific. Their precision manufacturing process utilizes 7 grades of casting alloys and all vented rotors retain their O.E. vane design. Centric Premium Brake Rotors exactly match the look and feel of original equipment (OE).
Silver Rust-Proof Finish:
Centric Premium Brake Rotors are finished with a specialized GeoMet® coating — a reliable, proven, corrosion-resistant metal finishing that protects against corrosion even under the harshest conditions and is used extensively by OEMs.
All Centric Premium Brake Rotors receive a straddle cut finish of less than Ra 1.5. This promises proper contact with the brake pad, reducing noise and vibration.
SportStop Performance Brake Rotors, offered as Slotted, Cross-Drilled or Cross-Drilled & Slotted , deliver better heat and gas dissipation. They are specifically designed to run cooler and promote improved wet and dry braking performance.
CENTRIC's SportStop Performance Brake Rotors
(formerly CHP - Centric High Performance - Brake Rotors)
The natural enemy of braking performance is heat. When temperature levels reach critical levels, a thin layer of gasses actually prevent the brake pads from making complete contact with the rotor friction surface. The addition of slotting or cross-drilling to the friction surface of the brake rotor promotes the evacuation of these gasses and improves stopping performance and pedal feel.
Centric's SportStop Slotted Rotors have specially designed, directional slots that remove gasses from in between the brake pad and the friction surface of the rotor. By removing these gasses, temperatures drop and brake performance increases.
The addition of cross-drilling to their slotted rotor further increases performance by pulling more gas and heat away from the friction contact zone. Centric's SportStop Cross-Drilled & Slotted Rotors feature countersunk holes that reduce stress risers and fractures. This allows for more surface area than conventional cross-drilled rotors thereby offering better structural integrity of the brake rotor.
All SportStop Performance Brake Rotors are made to exacting standards. Each rotor is analyzed for its specific application and design so that Centric engineers can determine the optimal slotting or drilling pattern to maximize stopping power. Using today's most advanced CNC machines, these patterns are then cut into the rotor. This level of quality control ensures that each SportStop brake rotor will perform to the highest levels every time under all driving conditions.
SportStop Performance Brake Rotors, combined with Posi Quiet Brake Pads are a cost effective alternative to expensive aftermarket Big Brake Kits providing the most efficient bolt-on performance brake upgrade offered today. In addition to improved braking performance, cross-drilled and slotted rotors look great through aftermarket wheels. See SportStop Performance Brake Rotors for more details.
