The new disc range – exclusive to Brembo – represents another significant step in Brembo’s mission to become a solution provider. The introduction 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 disc solution features the unique technical characteristics of Brembo’s two-piece portfolio, including use of a special iron casting 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 reduced weight, 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 common car brands on the market.
The patented design positions an aluminum hat alongside the cast-iron braking surface to harness the perfect performance of iron with the advantages of lightweight aluminum that can handle high temperatures.
The result is a disc that’s up to 30 percent lighter than an integral one of the same size, allowing a significant reduction in the vehicle’s fuel consumption, emissions, with the added benefit of reducing unsprung weight.
The Dual Cast design also delivers up to 70 percent better resistance to thermal deformations, ensuring less residual torque and reducing the possibility of vibration.
This new application also benefits from Brembo’s extensive experience as a manufacturer of top-quality Original Equipment brake components. Like all the exclusive designs in the company’s two-piece disc family, every Dual Cast component is subjected to the same rigorous specifications and quality controls that Brembo applies to its OE solutions.
Brembo’s Dual Cast disc is available to the Aftermarket from February 2022 at participating retailers, auto service shops, or at Bremboparts.com.
