    Carbon ceramic brake discs - refurbishment now possible (By Sicom).
    https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/...f=63&t=1506874

    Regarding the refurbishment, the process is something like this

    - Discs are weighed and depending on wear and wear pattern and rotors are x-rayed and examined for structural damage.
    - Brake pad residue or contaminates is chemically steamed off
    - Discs are machined until they are level
    - Napped are vacuum soaked in polymeric carbon
    - Pyrolyze the discs at 1100C
    - The last two steps are repeated three times
    - Discs are siliconized at 1500C
    - Top layer (ca. 1mm thick) is now restored, and trough the pyrolysis it is chemically and physically bonded with the structure
    - Final sanding of top layer
    - Disc is reassembled and weighed once more and precision-balanced
    - The disc now has gained about 30-50g and is at desired value once more

    I've copied and pasted this from the SICOM site as it's more elaborate than how I would have been able to explain it.

    Best used with RB sintered pads

    Testimonial from Camaro Z28 customer.

    Have you tried Racing Brakes Sintered Metal Pads? I've been running the Streetable Track Pad (XC-40 Compound) because I occasionally take my Z/28 out on the street. Mostly a track toy. I'm very happy with the pads. They have built a layer of metal on the rotor filling in most of the holes and have smoothed out the surface. Brake function is excellent. I run most of my track days on a high speed track (Watkins Glen) and pad wear is good. I will be swapping to the Track/Race Compound (XC-41) before my next track day to try. Pads are expensive but it appears rotors may never need replacement. I've got over 4000 miles on my original rotors with the majority of the miles on track.

    By Material & Finish:

    Brembo - Chopped (Short) Fiber


    Surface Transforms - Continuous (Long Fiver)



    RB - Continuous Fiber

    By Design:

    Traditional Straight Vane Design (Brembo & Surface Transforms): Rotor are non-directional (Left and right are the same, less efficient in cooling)




    RB's Angle Vane Design: Rotors are directional (More efficient in cooling air circulation and can keep braking temperature lower)
