The Differences Between Drum and Disk Brakes

The more you know about your car, the easier it is to notice issues, perform maintenance, and keep your vehicle in good shape. That’s why it’s important to learn what kind of brakes your car has and how they function. The earliest automobiles used a hand brake to create friction against the tires and stop the vehicle. At the start of the 20th century, manufacturers moved on to in-tire braking systems. This started with the drum back and later evolved into modern disk brakes, but both are still in use today.

Better Coating for your Brake Rotors

DuraGo has created new brake rotors that provide an unprecedented level of corrosion resistance. These rotors are especially useful your vehicle utilizes an open-wheel or if you drive in harsh wintery conditions where your rotor may be susceptible to corrosion from salts or brines. By using an electrophoretic coating process, the rotor is thoroughly coated including the inner vanes. Unlike sprayed on paint, the rotor is fully immersed in a tank and coated by the process of deposition. During the process, resin particles are suspended within a liquid medium and have a charge placed upon them. Under a charged current, the coating particles […]
