MOV´IT® CCF™ Crossed Continuous Fibre
Producing ceramic brake rotors is usually done in a cost-effective way. Friction layers of approx. 0,5 mm thickness are bond to a silicon carbid core which is reinforced by short carbon fibbers. This way to design a ceramic brake rotor entails some disadvantages, e.g. low thermal conductivity, little thermal capacity and poor material integrity. The result is a poor fading stability, high temperatures, excessive wear and high mechanical damage sensitivity.
In years of intensive research MOV´IT® succeeded in developing the highly sophisticated production technique CCF™ (Crossed Continuous Fibre) that allows overcoming those disadvantages ceramic brakes show in comparison to brakes made of cast iron and – at the same time – combines the advantages of both materials. Polyacrylonitrile fiber sheets are needeled together and generate a perform. The future rotors are then cut out of this perform and experience various treatments. After the final treatment, a complex high rate silicon infiltration, the MOV´IT®-CER rotor is finished. The CCF™ system guarantees high thermal conductivity, superior thermal capacity and a homogeneous material structure combined with the low weight of the carbon-silicon-carbid material.
