The new disc range joins the company’s existing Floating, Composite and Co-cast collections, to provide customers with a complete choice of two-piece replacement discs for a host of premium vehicles.
This new Brembo Dual Cast disc solution features the unique technical characteristics of Brembo’s two-piece portfolio, including use of a special cast iron process, lighter hats, pillar or directional venting, plus holes and/or grooves on the braking surface. Together these design solutions guarantee optimum braking performance in all conditions. In addition, the new disc allows more precise and stable vehicle dynamics, better pedal feel and a lighter braking system, along with added environmental benefits.
Specifically, Brembo’s new Dual Cast discs comprise 16 unique part numbers for the sportier models of some of the most important car brands on the market.
The patented design positions an aluminium hat alongside the cast-iron braking surface, to harness the “perfect performance” of iron with the advantages of lightweight aluminium that can handle high temperatures. The result is a disc that’s up to 30% lighter than an integral one of the same size, allowing a significant reduction in the vehicle’s fuel consumption and emissions.
Brembo’s Dual Cast disc is available to the aftermarket now at participating retailers, or at Bremboparts.com.
