Re: Pad and Rotor suggestions
I'm doing some research on a few different Rotor Manufacturers, and the technology and processes used to treat, harden that make Rotors more resistant to heat wear and cracking. I found that some companies namely ART and Hawk both use molybdenum Disulfide in the metallurgy process of there Rotors. PowerSlot; Cryogenically treating Rotors, a process where cycling cold and heat in a controlled environment is used to improve residual stress points left over from the casting process.
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
Some info I learned when working with Schaeffers oil.
Here it is used as a steel additive. The more Moly you add to steel in the Metallurgical process the harder the steel will become, and it has a distinct ability to with-stand higher heat, as well as dissipate heat.
Molybdenum is an important alloying agent which contributes to the hardenability and toughness of quenched and tempered steels. It also improves the strength of steel at high temperatures. It is used in certain heat-resistant and corrosion-resistant nickel-based alloys.
Now throw in the Slotting on the Rotors and to me this sounds like a much better Product than the OE Ford rotors.
Also, If you put a quality Rotor and an OE Rotor side by side, the difference is very apparent. I can't speak for anyone else, but I will never go back to a Ford OE rotor. I can't find any Technical information on the Ford OE rotors, but I highly doubt they go thru any of these processes to build they're rotors.
