Brake discs are exposed to very high mechanical and thermal loads. Added to these are environmental factors such as spray water, road grime and spreading material. They are therefore subject to natural wear. The condition of the brake discs is checked during every vehicle inspection. If the wear limit has been reached, they must be replaced in order to safeguard the reliable functioning of the brake system.
Many manufacturers have started to offer coated brake discs for brake repairs. Brake discs of this type are coated with a special paint which protects the brake discs (not the friction surface) against corrosion. As they retain their attractive appearance over time, coated brake discs are a good choice for open wheel rims.
