REBRAKE announces a new facility!

Starting January 2023, REBRAKE will operate a new factory located in Bayreuth/Bavaria. The new location is the former laboratories of the University of Bayreuth. The new facility means a quicker turnaround, getting you, our valued customer, back on the road quicker and with better discs.

Effective immediately, REBRAKE is using a new process to restore carbon-ceramic brake discs. Using an innovative patent pending approach developed in cooperation with the University of Bayreuth Chair of Ceramic Materials, the new process shortens the processing time considerably and represents a comprehensive improvement in quality compared to the previous process. The brake discs get a new friction layer that is significantly more durable, fills and fixes chipping and breakage, and restores the brake disc to the original required thickness and weight. REBRAKE is currently adapting the friction layer and bonding methods for use in aviation and other industries.

Refurbishment service for carbon ceramic brake disks

Many late model sports cars are equipped from the factory with expensive carbon ceramic brake (CCB) systems. When CCBs are worn or damaged they must be replaced with expensive OEM CCB parts. The replacement of one carbon ceramic brake disk often costs $5,000 or more. However, what gets damaged or worn is not the rotor itself, but the friction layer between the brake pads and the rotor. This friction layer can be rebuilt instead of replacing the whole disk. The new REBRAKE Friction Layer (RFL) restores the thickness and the braking capability of the CCB to OEM specification at a fraction of the cost.

A proprietary service by REBRAKE

The idea is simple and ingenious, the implementation technically perfect. This proprietary process was developed in Germany in cooperation with the world’s leading expert for ceramic compound materials.

REBRAKE not only rebuilds the friction layer, but also fills and repairs the small imperfections of the worn brake rotors. During the reconditioning phase, a new friction layer is made from the combination of liquid silicification and a high-temperature oven. The process bonds the friction layer to the brake rotor support structure, ensuring excellent adhesion. The process is fast, so you get back your brakes quickly.

Worn ceramic brake disks are no longer thrown out

First, the ceramic brake disks are cleaned, weighed, disassembled and checked for cracks to ensure structural integrity. While some cracks in the original friction layer are normal cracks that compromise the structural integrity of the rotor structure can disqualify the used rotor. Luckily, cracks to the base rotor are rare.  Typically, the base rotor is in excellent shape and can be reused.

Minor repair to edge damage

The edge of the rotor is vulnerable to chipping from being dropped or being hit by hard objects such as a wheel during wheel mounting or mechanics’ tools being used around the rotor. Minor chips in the rotor edge are filled with material and bonded to the rotor during the baking process. This prevents further deterioration of the expensive rotor. This service is provided at extra cost but in total, the process is still cost-effective compared to purchasing a new OEM rotor. REBRAKE process results are OEM quality.
