On November 14, 2022, Rebrake GmbH applied for a European patent for the unique and innovative coating application to carbon ceramic disk brakes. Pursuit of the expensive European patent indicates Rebrake’s confidence that the cutting edge Rebrake Friction Layer process is the best option for recovering carbon ceramic disc brakes to their OEM capability quickly and at a fraction of the cost.
The key advantages of the new Rebrake process are the high degree of surface hardness, the retention of the original target thickness of the disk brakes and the ability to fill in a completely missing friction layer from the surface of the disk brakes. Above all, the patented process shortens the bonding and polishing time to one week. Previously, it took in average 2 1/2 month to recreate the friction layer and the result was a reduced disk thickness.
The technology to bond a new friction layer to carbon ceramic disk brakes was developed in cooperation with the University of Bayreut. In addition to disk brakes, it can be used for other applications such as airplane landing gear and thermal coating. In the future, Rebrake plans to branch out from automotive applications to the aviation industries.
