  • Shop at PartsGeek any time you require high quality automobile parts like a Centric brake rotor. Keeping your car safe for the highway and in compliance with traffic laws is easy when the right safety options have been placed correctly. Mishaps are sometimes a part of operating a car, but you can reduce the risk of falling prey to a collision simply by purchasing and repairing the safety equipment such as turning lights or brake components. A small investment in safety for your car now may very well prevent big expense in the future. An investment in devices that improve mechanical operation also improves performance in stormy conditions. Many styles of brake rotor have ventilation slots to provide heat dissipation, to increase the assembly's lifespan. An automobile's brake rotors are strong metal discs attached to the car's wheels that stop the vehicle as the brakes squeeze against them. To halt damage to the brake rotor it is important to regularly inspect and take care of the condition of your rotors and brake shoes, for these parts protect the brake rotors from warping. A serviceable brake rotor is designed to provide friction between the shoes and brake caliper, allowing the car or truck to slow. When brake pads are swapped, brake rotors must be checked at the same time because a faulty rotor may lead to a lack of control or steering power. Many times the most frustrating thing about restoring your car or truck is searching for a top-rated source for outstanding parts like a Centric brake rotor.

    Centric Premium brake rotors feature O.E. style vane designs. This attention to detail ensures each Centric Premium rotor will function just like the original part.

    CENTRIC PREMIUM BRAKE ROTORS

  • Center Split Castings:

     

    Centric premium brake rotors are cast with the correct center split vane design. This is how the OEM and all quality replacement brake rotors are made. Cast parts with a cavity and core require parting lines and draft angles which are the small angles you see on vertical surfaces such as on the vanes in the rotor. In order to maximize thermal efficiancy we will place that parting line in the center of the vane where the least heat transfer occurs and it's FARTHEST from the heat source.

    If you look carefully at the picture the cross section of the Centric Premium rotor vane is hourglass shaped whereas the generic rotor has a tapered from bottom to top. The reason that the center split geometry is there is such that heat transfer from the friction plates into the vanes is as even as possible from one side of the rotor to the other and not choked on one side like the generic rotor. Also, we want the thickness of the friction plates to be the same side to side.

    In the case of the other rotor - the thinnest part of the vane is right where it connects to the upper friction plate. This thinner section will let less heat past it into the cooling vane than the other side with the thicker connection. Additionally, while not readily visible in this photo many generic rotors have thinner plates on one side than the other. These issues can only lead to unbalnced temperatures across the rotor. This can unbalance pad wear, increase rotor or pad wear or create other heat related issues. It may take time to manifest itself but you'll likely be doing your next brake job sooner.
