Ceramic Composite Material

February 2, 2010

Carbon fiber-reinforced ceramic composite

Brembo Ceramic Brake Systems manufactures advanced composite ceramic braking systems for automotive applications as well as general research and development for innovative materials. Developed originally for the aerospace field, a combination of chopped carbon fiber and silicon carbide matrix endows the Ceramic Composite Material (CCM) with exceptional physical characteristics. Since the carbon fibers are embedded in the SiC matrix, they provide elasticity and damage tolerance while the matrix provides wear and oxidation resistance.

The properties of extreme damage tolerance, low elastic modulus, and superior wear resistance make CCM an ideal brake disc material. CCM offers benefits with regard to weight, comfort, corrosion resistance, long life, and may be used in dry and wet conditions.
