High carbon rotors improve temperature stability and heat transfer - Power Stop uses the finest blanks featuring G3000 grade castings from the best foundries in the world. Most foundries lower carbon to increase tensile strength and hardness. Power Stop rotors have a carbon content that is 3% more than competitive brands while maintaining 210 Brinell hardness and 250 MPa tensile strength. The microstructure is an ideal homogenous matrix of perlitic and graphite flakes. Castings are made from primary scrap and charcoal pig-iron without residual contamination from secondary scrap metalsmapques. Almost all off-shore foundries dump scrap in the material with residual elements such as Niobium, Vanadium, Molybdenum, Titanium and Tungsten. These residual materials cause the formation of uncontrolled carbides in the microstructure that weaken the casting. Precise machining - Our rotors are carefully machined to prevent stress risers, and they are guaranteed not to crack for 3 years when combined with our brake pads. All products conform to OE dimensions for a perfect fit every time. Fade resistant friction - Our brake pads are specifically engineered to hold a high coefficient of friction above 1000 degrees. Where other pads show brake fade, Power Stop consistently delivers superior brake power. How do we know? We provide independent test results to compare brake performance with other leading brands (see technical FAQ page). Power Stop pads up to 35% more pad bite and longer pad life. Posi-mold brake pads Power Stop brake pads use positive mold technology. Posi-mold pads enable consistent density as the material is hot pressed at over 6,000 psi. The result is consistent performance and low noise. All pads are asbestos free. Zinc-dichromate plating Power Stops plating resists rust and keeps the rotors looking new behind those alloy wheels. Some competitors use cadmium plating that is highly toxic, and a significant cancer risk. Cadmium is banned in Europe and with all major vehicle manufacturers.
Power Stop Extreme Performance Brake Systems has a brake system for any application. There is the Z36 Extreme Truck & Tow brake pads. Then there is the Z26 Extreme Street Performance Brake Pads for your daily driver. Power Stop also makes performance drilled and slotted Evolution Rotors. Each of these lines offers the highest in performance brake quality without the high price. Power Stop uses third party testing to certify that select brake pads offer 20% more stopping power than other leading aftermarket pads. So you get performance with peace of mind. Power Stop brake pads are manufactured with the company's own innovations such as positive molding technology to insure more consistent material density during fabrication. This gives you consistent, fade-free braking. Shop Power Stop Now
