Alumatrix Brakes

Lightweight metal matrix composite brake discs that provide a highly uniform, aluminum silicon carbide composite located only on the friction surface.

overview

Benefits

Metal Matrix Innovation’s selective enhancement technology provides  numerous advantages over traditional cast iron brake discs, including:

WEIGHT SAVINGS

Our composite brake discs are up to 60% lighter than typical cast iron brakes. This weight reduction provides significant improvements in fuel and energy efficiency, ride quality, handling and acceleration. Alumatrix brakes can save approximately 14 kg (30 lbs) of unsprung and rotational weight on a midsized sedan.

Durability & Longevity

A selectively placed aluminum silicon carbide metal matrix composite at the braking surface significantly increases wear resistance.

Brake Rotor Testing

Our rotors are rigorously tested to SAE standards to ensure stable friction and durability.

  • SAE J2928 - Brake Rotor Thermal Cracking Procedure for Vehicles Below 4540 kg GVWR
  • SAE J2522 - Dynamometer Global Brake Effectiveness (AK Master)
  • SAE J2784 – FMVSS 135 Inertia Dynamometer Test Procedure
