SETTING A NEW STANDARD

Bendix Sports and Performance Disc Rotors

Bendix says that behind every Bendix Ultimate Disc Brake Rotor is a company with vast experience as an original equipment manufacturer with “leading edge technology, precision engineering and unsurpassed quality standards.”
It says the Bendix Ultimate Sports and Performance Disc Rotors have evolved from this environment with improved heat dissipation, noise dampening characteristics and higher thermal conductivity to remove heat and reduce fade which all provides stronger, smoother and safer braking.
The new Bendix rotors are said to perfectly complement the existing Bendix range and incorporate innovative technologies such as High Carbon Metallurgy for increased braking performance and stopping power; Diamond Tip Slots and V-Shaped Dimples, each designed specifically to expel gasses, dirt and water; and SwiftFit Coating, a protective zinc coating which reportedly allows for faster and easier installation, unlimited shelf life, the elimination of corrosion and thus long term good looks.
Bendix Ultimate Sports and Performance Disc Rotors are said to have the highest level of precision engineering based on OEM specifications for size, diameter and hole spacing for the perfect fit. Diamond Tip Slots are specifically designed to be bi-directional to achieve efficiency in expelling water, grit and water quickly.
Bendix says this precision balanced pattern of the new Ultimate Rotors has evolved from racing experience, allowing the driver to feel absolute control in hard braking with even friction and instant response.
It states that the proven High Carbon Metallurgy in the Ultimate Discs provides improved thermal stability and conductivity, reducing the chance of warping under extreme heat conditions. The higher carbon formulation reportedly increases the rotor strength at elevated temperatures while the high wear resistance from this increased strength increases its durability whilst also providing improved noise suppression.
Further, Bendix explains that the SwiftFit coating, with its corrosion inhibitors, not only makes pre-cleaning unnecessary but also provides a great look that will not degrade over time. It says there is no longer a requirement to clean anti-rust oil or coating from the surface where uncoated rotors can succumb to corrosion that can result in vibration over time.
The Bendix ventilation system is engineered to evenly channel cool air into the rotor, expelling hot air faster thus increasing resistance to thermal cracks and minimising distortion, explains Bendix.
Vehicle applications for the new Bendix Ultimate Disc Brake Rotors are said to be extensive.
