Military Rotors

Performance Friction has an unrivaled commitment to design, materials, and process capability that sets them apart from the competition. 

BUILT TO PERFORM
Performance Friction disc designs are engineered to exceed the performance needs of the vehicle. We have taken the improvement of disc brake technology vs. drum brakes a step further than anyone else in the industry. The major problems with competitors’ best military disc-brake rotors—brake drag, thermal judder, and vibration—have been eliminated. 

Performance Friction disc mounting designs minimize thermal deformation out-of-plane, reducing drag and other related phenomena. Low disc distortion designs with PFC’s Zero Drag technology leads to significant reductions in fuel usage. 

NO COMPROMISES
Performance Friction’s commitment to the quality and use of materials is unique in the brake industry. PFC rotors are built using high strength materials to improve the temperature strength of the brake rotors. Using the best materials delivers maximum performance at high temperatures. 

SECOND TO NONE
Performance Friction’s custom designed machining centers are the most capable in the world. Lateral run-out and thickness variation adhere to the strictest specifications, and are measured down to the single micron.
