Castings Or Finished Rotors

Where castings or finished rotors have been bought in to complement the range, the strictest quality controls you can imagine ensure the safety and quality of the parts we sell. EBC adds value to its products by strictest quality controls and specifications and a 100% run out and dimensional check, plus all USA sport rotors are slotted at the Las Vegas facility of the USA operation. We employ 14 people in our USA rotor machining facility alone and have a bank of 8 HAAS and Feeler CNC machines using the latest CNC controls and tooling for superb accuracy.

EBC Brakes produces all of its GD series and USR discs with a long lasting corrosion resistant finish. The coating is either the world famous thermic or for less popular smaller batch items we use the new NITROTHERM™ process of anti corrosive paint applied using this revolutionary process that coats with warm Nitrogen producing a better finish.

Thermic Black & Nitrotherm™

EBC Brakes produces all of its GD series and USR discs with a long lasting corrosion resistant finish. The coating is either the world famous thermic or for less popular smaller batch items we use the new NITROTHERM™ process of anti corrosive paint applied using this revolutionary process that coats with warm Nitrogen producing a better finish. Choose from EBC plain non drilled rotors or sport rotors in two choices – wide aperture GD Sport Rotors series for cooler running or new super silent Ultimax USR slotted series. On a global scale Most EBC rotors are made from high quality G3000 castings and 100% of these are precision machined in either the UK or the USA.

EBC Brakes has 14 machining centres in these two countries to manufacture these precision parts. Rotors are made from high quality grey iron to exacting standards and undergo extensive testing and rigorous quality control and are then precision machined to your chosen slot or dimple pattern.

Dimple Drilled Rotor

The dimple drilled rotor was invented by EBC back in the 90’s and has been imitated by many because of its ability to offer pad degassing without “Through Drilling” disc or rotor holes which has been shown to promote rotor cracks.

The wide aperture slots on the EBC units actually draw cool air under the brake pad and rotor interface and help cool the temperatures of the pad contact which can shoot up to well over 1000 degrees at the very heart of the brake pad during heavy braking and can cause brake fade or loss of brake effect.

Full Sweep

Apollo Series brake calipers are cast in UK, machined in the UK, painted in the UK and then assembled in the UK. Reinforcing the EBC philosophy of providing quality British made braking products yet at affordable prices.

With so many callipers in this segment of the market being bought in from far East, surely this is the ultimate testament to EBC’s devotion to quality. EBC are, and will always be a true champion of Great British engineering.

Statement Of Quality

EBC manufacture the vast majority of its automotive rotors including
Premium brake rotors in the UK or Europe.

Geometry Issues

One in seven cars suffers geometry problems during its life that can affect steering and cause brake vibration. These are NOT a product quality issue! These can happen by simply nudging a kerb or by driving over a pothole. EBC is not alone in recognising this problem but is the only brake supplier on the planet prepared to offer diagnosis and a solutions.

Installation or hub run-out issues

These cause what is known as DTV. The videos below show how to correct for brake vibration caused by DTV (Disc thickness variation). DTV develops in a car after 3000-4000 miles caused by runout built in to the car or due to incorrect alignment of the rotors at install. This is quite a common fault on modern cars and many cars require this at every rotor change. drivers also confuse hub distortion with a rotor quality issue but in 99% of cases the dtv is a car problem, not a rotor quality problem. you can replace the rotors as many times as you like trying to solve vibration and the problem will only go away for a few thousand miles and then return. this means you have purchased new rotors in good faith but the problem is not solved and will not go away permanently until you perform this procedure. after this skimming of the rotor surface you will have smooth brakes , more effective brakes and zero vibration. it is even a very worthwhile practice when fitting new rotors to have all four rotors skimmed into perfect alignment on your car with this inexpensive procedure.

Rotor Distortion

Rotor distortion due to DTV is very common, in fact one in seven cars has a steering geometry problem either when it is built new or after nudging a kerb or hitting a large pothole. Uneducated people still say “My rotors are warped”. Well the engineering facts are rotors do not warp, they are made of cast iron, they are very tough and can be run to red heat and cooled time after time and they will not distort, we do this day in day out on our dynos in the EBC lab. Thats why the whole world still uses cast iron as a vehicle brake rotor material, there has never been anything to beat it and probably never will be. Pro Cut machines Work on both plain rotors and even better on slotted and drilled rotors of all types.

Who are Pro-Cut?

Pro Cut are a USA based multi national and extremely professional Corporation. Their machines are used and approved by many major car manufacturers and used all over the world to do exactly what they do best, correct for rotor mis-alignment no matter how it arises on a car. You cannot achieve this with any other device.
