Brake discs

The brake disc is essential for the safety of the passengers and driver, given that it is exposed to extremely high loads in everyday use of the vehicle, it is important to be checked during all service checks and when changing brake pads. It should be replaced immediately if scratches, uneven wear, cracks or stains appear.

Brake discs must be replaced if the thickness is below safety limits specified by the manufacturer, as this may result in extended stopping distances or destruction of the discs themselves. Changing the disc is mandatory in pairs, because changing only one disc can cause uneven braking on both wheels.

 
VeGa offers to its customers brake discs with high quality and wide range, made of premium quality materials. VeGa brake discs are made from high-carbon alloys that provide optimal heat control - as a result VeGa brake discs have:
 
Higher strength
Higher durability
Longer lifetime
Noise free stopping
 
 
 
The disc brake is a wheel brake which slows rotation of the wheel by the friction caused by pushing brake pads against a brake disc with a set of calipers. The brake disc is usually made of cast iron, but may in some cases be made of composites such as reinforced carbon–carbon or ceramic matrix composites. This is connected to the wheel and/or the axle. To stop the wheel, friction material in the form of brake pads, mounted on a device called a brake caliper, is forced mechanically, hydraulically, pneumatically or electromagnetically against both sides of the disc. 
 
 
 
Save money on brake repairs and parts with these tips:
 
Use Your Eyes & Ears to Inspect Your Brakes
 
Visually inspect your brakes' condition at least every six months. Here are some things to look for:
 
1. A grinding noise coming from any of the wheels could be a sign of wearing pads or rotors. Squeaking or squealing brakes, however, don't necessarily mean your brakes aren't in optimal working order; some systems are simply noisier than others due to materials used and design (if, however, there's a major change in the noise you usually hear, that could be cause for concern). 
2. If you notice an unusual accumulation of dark dust on your hubcaps/rims, especially on the rear wheels, it may be a sign that your brakes and/or rotors need attention. Most vehicles have a front brake bias, meaning that the front brakes play a larger part than the back brakes, so it's common to see some dust on the front. If, however, you see brake dust accumulating on the rear wheels, or an unusual amount of it on the front wheels, you're wise to take your vehicle in for a check-up.
3. Brake Rotors (disc brakes) should be inspected all the way around the surface and on both sides for any concentric scoring (grooves) or obvious defects. If defects are found, replace your rotors immediately. Any rotor discoloration may be a sign of overheating and an inspection by a brake repair professional is needed.
