COVID-19 UPDATE FROM OUR CEO
Centric Premium Brake Rotors are built to original equipment specifications, using OE production processes, and are manufactured to meet QS and ISO Quality System Standards.
Centric premium rotors utilize an electrocoating finish that provides long-lasting corrosion protection. E-coating is a superior, electro-statically applied finish designed to withstand 400 hours of salt water exposure without rusting. Phosphate finishes utilized by other manufacturers provide only minimal protection from the elements; these finishes are generally only effective for the shipping and storage portion of a rotor’s life. The addition of heat and moisture eliminates the effectiveness of phosphate finishes, resulting in immediate corrosion once installed in the vehicle.
Centric Parts also offers 125 Series High Carbon Brake Rotors for certain vehicle applications. High Carbon Rotors feature advanced metallurgy that greatly reduces the possibility of pad squeal, especially with higher friction, European-style brake pad compounds. Proprietary Molybdenum and Chromium alloys resist cracking in high-heat situations and increase friction couple for improved braking power and stopping performance.
Centric premium rotors feature a double disc ground, taper free finish. Double disc grinding ensures parallelism, eliminates run out and provides near perfect disc thickness variation (DTV). Double disc grinding leaves a non-directional finish on the friction surface area for more effective pad-rotor break in. This special finish also provides quieter and smoother stops. The surface Roughness production standard for Centric Premium Brake Rotors: RMS=64.3 or Ra=1.6 micro-meters (63 micro-inches).
Centric premium rotors feature 100% fully machined finishes including rotor hats. This extra process provides better rotor balance and creates a cleaner, more finished looking component. In addition, Centric Premium rotors are inspected for balance and mill-corrected to a tolerance of less than 2 oz. inch. This additional machining operation reduces feedback associated with rotor vibration and provides a smooth, confident application of braking force.
Symmetric vane castings provide proper heat transfer and thermal efficiency, resulting in superior braking power and safety. Centric Premium brake rotors feature O.E. style vane designs. This attention to detail ensures each rotor will function just like the original part
Centric Premium brake drums feature Original Equipment specifications and production processes guaranteeing proper fitment and superior performance and quality. Centric premium drums utilize either an Electrocoating finish or O.E. style painted finish for protection from the elements. Original Equipment style castings ensure superior performance and extended service life. Machined finishes provide cleaner appearance through wheels. Precision machined friction surfaces ensure smooth operation and reduced noise under braking. O.E. specification mill balancing eliminates vibrations.
GCX Elemental Protection Disc Brake Rotors are specially engineered to restore OE performance and provide superior protection from rust and corrosion, even in extreme conditions. They feature Centric’s advanced RS200 Brake Rotor Coating on the non-friction mating surfaces, leaving the friction swept area clean, which results in 20% faster pad bed-in and eliminates pad fouling and corrosion rings. A full coating on all non-mating surfaces inhibits rust formation and helps provide long-lasting corrosion resistance. With over 560 SKUs, and growing, you are covered for more than 80% of the vehicles on the road today.
