Centric Parts Releases 7 New Technical Videos in Centric University Series
(Industry, Calif. - February 1, 2017) Centric Parts, North America’s leading manufacturer and supplier of OE and aftermarket brake and chassis components, announced today the release of seven new videos in the company’s Centric University technical series. This latest wave of videos covers brake friction, brake rotors and brake installation tips. They are available on the company’s website and YouTube channel.
Centric Premium High Carbon Alloy Rotors
Centric 125 Series High Carbon Alloy Brake Rotors contain an advanced metallurgy that greatly reduces the possibility of pad squeal especially with higher friction, European style brake pad compounds. Proprietary Molybdenum and Chromium alloys resist rotor cracking during high performance use or repeat stop situations. This alloy also increases the friction couple improving brake performance and stopping power. Increased Chromium and Carbon content is also more resistant to oxidation.
• Symmetric vane castings for Increased strength and stability
• Black E-Coat anti-corrosive coating protects the cooling vanes and mounting
surfaces from rusting prematurely
• Double disc ground friction surface finish
• Mill balancing ensures smooth operation at all speeds
Centric parts High Carbon Alloy Brake Rotors feature a double disc ground finish which virtually eliminates run out and any disc thickness variation issues. Double disc grinding also produces a non-directional finish for improved rotor and pad break-in. The surface Roughness production standard for Centric High Carbon Brake Rotors: RMS=64.3 or Ra=1.6 micro-meters (63 micro-inches).
Centric Parts High Carbon Alloy Brake Rotors feature our exclusive black E-Coating on all non-friction surfaces. E-Coating is an advanced electro-statically applied finish that has been engineered to withstand 400 hours of salt spray testing without corroding.
Centric Parts High Carbon Alloy Brake Rotors utilize the same symmetric vane molding process used by OE manufacturers. Rotors with symmetric vanes dissipate heat more efficiently and provide better stopping power especially in repeat stop situations.
Centric High Carbon Alloy Brake Rotors are mill balanced to a tolerance of less than 2oz.inch. This additional machining operation reduces feedback associated with rotor vibration and provides a smooth confident application of braking force.
