EV Electric vehicle (EV) brake systems that use carbon fiber and ceramic materials in combination to produce a highly resilient and high-performance braking system are known as carbon-ceramic composites.
Carbon fibers and ceramic substances like silicon carbide or aluminum oxide are combined to create carbon-ceramic composites. As a result, a material that is exceptionally resistant to abrasion, corrosion, and high temperatures is produced, making it a great option for high-performance brake systems.
Carbon-ceramic composites are particularly helpful in the context of EVs since they can aid in weight reduction, which is crucial for extending the range and overall efficiency of electric vehicles.
Furthermore, they may deliver outstanding braking performance even during prolonged use without producing an excessive amount of heat or dust.
Overall, carbon-ceramic composites are a key technology for enhancing the effectiveness and performance of EVs, and as the demand for electric vehicles rises, they are likely to become even more common.
Global EV Carbon-ceramics composites market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Surface Transforms, a UK-based manufacturer and supplier of carbon-ceramic materials, has launched a new carbon-ceramic brake disc kit for the McLaren 765LT supercar.
The upgrade kit is 100% UK manufactured using Surface Transforms unique 3D matrix carbon-ceramic weave technology which produces a lighter, stronger and more durable product. The reduced weight is extremely beneficial to performance as it is fitted to a rotating, un-sprung area of the car.
The upgrade kit is supplied as complete disc assemblies with all the parts required for easy fitment, which is backed by a dedicated UK technical sales team providing comprehensive aftersales care and support.
In September the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo will be held in Novi, Michigan, and will include a number of solutions for electric vehicles from CoorsTek, the top producer of technical ceramics in the world New levels of performance are possible with CoorsTek ceramic components that were previously not possible with conventional metal and polymer materials.
The presentation by CoorsTek R&D Engineer Aaron Miller on the advantages of employing silicon nitride bearing balls for EV motor shaft bearings was one of the show’s high points. They provide the optimal fusion of electrical conductivity and mechanical strength.
