OEM technology is getting better and better every year. At DFC, we endeavor to match the latest technologies as applied by the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
Each rotor is engineered to match the OE vane configuration, including the OE split-core technology to ensure proper and maximum heat dissipation. Additionally, all cores are dipped with a specifically formulated paint in order to provide a smoother finish inside the vane structure. The smooth finish will improve air flow as well as reduce the amount of machining required in order to properly balance the finished rotor during the mill-balancing process.
Next, the castings are sent to our state of the art machining facilities, where each rotor is machined to the tightest tolerances available in the market today. We can guarantee specifications of .010mm disc thickness variation (DTV) and .050mm maximum lateral runout. Though in practice, we regularly achieve .007mm DTV and .025mm maximum lateral runout. Then, the rotors are fine-turned to a maximum of 1.6 RMS. The objective of these strict tolerances is to create the smoothest possible finish, which improves initial break-in due to the increased contact between the pad and the rotor.
After all of the machining processes are completed, each rotor passes a 100% electronic inspection station that measures over 20 attributes to ensure that each rotor meets OE specifications. This further guarantees that each and every rotor delivered to you is trouble free. Coupled with our application-specific DFC brake pads, these rotors provide the best possible braking right out of the box compared to anything else in the market!
Finally, we apply a genuine GEOMET® Finish throughout the entire part, which promises to deliver superior corrosion protection. The GEOMET® coating is processed dry, shipped dry, and ready to install without any additional preparation. An average brake job takes 1.25-2.5 hours per axle. Without the need to clean an oil covered rotor, this saves a tremendous amount of time and money during the installation process. The GEOMET® Finish is simply and safely swept away by the friction material with no harmful effects.
Manufactured for european and heavy vehicles, our High Carbon iron formulations (Molybdenum, Chromium, and Carbon) enhances noise dampening characteristics, while providing high strength, and increased thermal conductivity compared to standard discs, which increases durability.
Engineered with High Carbon castings to enhance noise dampening characteristics, while providing strength, stability, durability, and performance.
