STEZZANO, Italy – Brembo has launched Greentive®, the new brake disc which features a layer of coating applied to its ring, using High-Velocity-Oxy-Fuel (HVOF) technology. The design contributes to reduced brake dust and increased corrosion resistance.
Decades of experience in the field of braking system has allowed Brembo to introduce a new disc with high technological characteristics. Designed to meet the demands of premium and luxury cars, the new disc is at the forefront of the latest automotive trends.
Brembo Begins Its Journey as a Solution Provider
The name Greentive® is a fusion of the words “GREEN” and “DISTINCTIVE”, with the former emphasizing the disc’s environmentally friendly features and the latter highlighting its elegance and recognizability.
Thanks to its braking surface, Greentive® ensures very low wear, significantly extending the disc life cycle. A reduction of brake dust contributes to a decrease in brake emissions as well as cleaner rims.
Moreover, the coating offers a high level of corrosion resistance, a feature particularly appreciated in the new generation of electric cars, where the braking system is used differently.
In regard to style, Greentive® stands out thanks to a mirroring effect that exudes elegance and personality. This is further emphasised by the Brembo logo featured on the brake ring surface, which not only enhances its Brembo identity but also signals when the disc needs to be replaced.
Greentive® embodies the most advanced technological solutions in terms of sustainability, while also providing consistently high levels of performance and a special attention to style.
The new coating technology can be applicable on the brake ring of all Brembo disc concepts: solid, Lightweight, Dual Cast and two-piece floating discs.
