SURFACE TRANSFORMS – THE HOME OF CARBON CERAMIC BRAKES
Surface Transforms is a highly innovative company, with its own patented materials technology and a team of PhD-qualified scientists and degree-qualified engineers who are continually developing new processes for the production of carbon-ceramic materials and new products for various applications. ST is a manufacturer of next-generation carbon-ceramic brake discs for automotive and aircraft applications and has been certified to IS9001-2000 since 2008 and was certified to TS16949 automotive quality accreditation and AS9100C aerospace quality accreditation in 2015.
Surface Transforms is a Public Limited Company listed on the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange Plc. For further information see our Investor Information section.
Surface Transforms’ material is a next-generation Carbon Fibre Reinforced Ceramic (CFRC) which is produced by Surface Transforms’ proprietary processes, transforming Carbon-Carbon into our Carbon-Silicon Carbide (CSiC) ceramic.
Whilst the carbon-ceramic discs you find on production road cars conventionally use discontinuous (chopped) carbon fibre, ST interweaves continuous carbon fibre to form a 3D multi-directional matrix, producing a stronger and more durable product with 3x the heat conductivity of standard production components, this keeps the brake system temperature down and the brake performance consistent.
Surface Transforms has developed unique patented next-generation Carbon-Ceramic Technology that provides the ultimate braking performance for road and track. Here’s seven reasons why you need this technology on your vehicle:
- Weight savings of up to 70% compared to iron brakes (typically 20kg of unsprung weight)
- Improved handling and driveability
- Improved NVH (less noise, vibration and harshness)
- Improved performance (in both wet and dry conditions)
- Reduced brake wear – giving increased life
- Corrosion Free
- Outstanding performance, even from cold
