Brake Rotors

By using cryogenics on rotors, braking mechanisms last longer and provide better quality, saving money and time.

  • Reduced Wear and Distortion
  • Increased relief and stability
  • Significantly increased useful life

Brake Rotor Tests

The following are brake tests being conducted on vehicles using brake rotors that have been Cryogenic treated.  Each test has already been successful even though the pads and the treated rotors continued to operate and had much more life remaining in them.  The tests involve vehicles used in motor sports, ambulances, busses, and police cars. These gave us a very good cross section to show the advantages of the Cryogenic treatment and it’s results.


Before using Cryogenic treated brake rotors, the Decatur “In Town” ambulance service had been replacing brake pads every 5000 miles or every two months.  They had been replacing the brake rotors every 18,000 miles due to warpage and cracking.  After Cryogenic treatment of the brake rotors they were able to run them for ten months, a 400%increase in pad life and a 140% gain in rotor life with both still in operation. 


Before using treated rotors on specially constructed FORD E-350 vans (ordered from FORD with 7.3 diesel engines and 4 wheel drive by the bus manufacturer. The rear drive shaft removed and the bus operated as a front wheel drive so that a large body is mounted very low for wheel chair access.) the brake pads on these special built buses had to be replaced at 2500 miles.  After the Cryogenic treatment to a new set of rotors with new pads installed, the bus now has 9000 miles with the same rotors and pads.


At a police training school where police are professionally trained for high speed pursuit on road courses, speeds reached and the abuse involved caused performance tires and brake rotors to be replaced at 400 miles.  The rotors would warp and crack causing brake fade.  New brake pads and cryogenically treated rotors were installed on the squad cars. After 1200 miles, the rotors are still running with no signs of warpage or cracking.  The officers continue to remark that the brakes feel better and don’t fade like in the past.


A stock production race car running at the Portland International Raceway road course had a very good aggressive driver that continually wore out his brake pads before the race was over.  Treated rotors were installed for the next race and after the race was over there was still 40% of the pads left.  Now this allows them to use race pads for the next practice and qualifying session and then install new pads for the race.  They can then continue to use the same rotors each race.
