CRITICAL DESIGN FEATURES:

 
RAYBESTOS VS. “LIGHTWEIGHT” ROTORS

Raybestos rotors match the original plate mass, air gaps and vane size. Many competitors sacrifice mass, which changes the rotor’s heat resistance and can lead to premature failure.


Raybestos Rotor

1) PLATE MATCHES ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT (OE)
Maximum rotor life; can be machined; resistant to premature “warping”

2) AIR GAP MATCHES OE
Properly dissipates and absorbs the heat

3) VANE SIZE MATCHES OE
Maximized cooling and proper harmonic design reduces brake noise

4) MATERIAL
Matches OE specifications

 

Competitive “Lightweight” Rotor

5) THINNER PLATE
Increases the likelihood of heat checking and can lead to premature failure

6) AIR GAP INCREASED
Leads to “warped” rotors

7) VANE SIZE CHANGES
Reduced vane size can lead to early product failure

8) COST SAVING MATERIAL CHANGES
Inhibits noise reduction capabilities and causes brittleness
