To reduce weight, the number of brakes per axle, as well as provide stable friction at very high speeds and all temperatures, a ceramic composite is now used in various forms for automotive, railway, and aircraft brake applications. Ceramic brake discs are lighter than metal brake discs. As a result, they can reduce the overall weight of the car. The ceramic brake disc ensures very high and, in particular, consistent frictional values throughout the entire deceleration process. The overall car braking system is designed to match a car´s layout and take advantage of the ceramic brake disk material´s properties. A ceramic composite takes advantage of material with an outstanding hardness and an ability to retain its strength and shape at temperatures that would melt conventional iron disc brake materials. 

Major Advantages of Ceramic Disk

  • Improved brake response and fading data
  • High thermal stableness
  • No hot judder
  • Excellent pedal feel
  • Improved steering behavior
  • High abrasion resistance 
  • Longer lifetime  
  • The advantage of avoiding almost completely brake dust. 

The main disadvantage of ceramic brake discs is their high initial cost. Initially, the ceramic matrix composite brake discs will be more expensive than the current technology metal ones due to the low manufacturing volumes and the high cost of production. Ceramic-composite disc materials are a big step in the right direction, costing only about one-fourth as much as carbon-carbon.
