What are the benefits of using stainless steel in disc brakes?

The material for a brake disc of a two-wheeled vehicle, etc., is required to have properties such as abrasion resistance, rusting resistance, and toughness. Hardness is an important factor for disc brakes and stainless steel 410DB grade plays an important role in achieving the desired hardness for disc brake application. It is available in various thicknesses which makes it the most suitable product for different-capacity engine vehicles.

It, therefore, exhibits a superior combination of high strength, ductility, formability, and toughness compared to other metals and alloys, and the intrinsic weight of the vehicle decreases, making stainless steel a perfect fit for disc brakes.

Role of disc brakes in the automotive industry

The automotive and transport industry is one of the largest industries in the world and India provides a good percentage of consumers to it. Over the last decade, the need to travel has increased owing to numerous reasons. This has led to the growth and expansion of the automotive and transport industry manifolds.

While there are various kinds of vehicles today, a common product that binds most of them is the brake. Brakes are the most important safety system in any vehicle as they provide the ability for a vehicle to slow down or stop in an instant, thereby avoiding an accident.

Disc brakes, a type of brake, is used for instant braking and locking of the vehicle. The disc brakes were developed in England in the 1890s and were adopted in nearly every vehicle by the late 1920s. They are a critical part of auto safety systems as they offer better-stopping performance in vehicles as compared to drum brakes. Disc brakes cool rapidly and have longer life as compared to drum brakes.

Over the years, different materials have been used to make disc brakes. However, after countless experimentations, stainless steel has emerged as the clear winner as an ideal fit. Stainless steel is a very good option for making disc brakes as it can be used to form a disc brake rotor which has several excellent properties even when the steel is hardened with a cooling speed slower than air cooling.
