Brake Caliper Refurbishment In St Albans
Keeping your brake calipers well maintained is vital in ensuring the safety and performance of your braking system. Your brake calipers are an essential part of your vehicle’s disc brake system that contains hydraulic pistons and brake pads. When you press the brake pedal, pistons inside the brake caliper compress your brake pads against the disc brake rotors to create friction. This friction force then slows your vehicle down.
It is also this friction that converts the kinetic energy of the vehicle into heat. This will of course increase the temperature of your brake calipers swiftly if used constantly over long periods of time. After you’ve rested the brakes, the disc brake calipers quickly cool down. And it’s this constant process of heating up and cooling down that corrodes your brake calipers over time. The corrosion subsequently produces rough and worn calipers which results in:
- Excessive wear on the brake piston seals
- Seizing and brake sticking
- Unbalanced and dangerous braking performance
- Compromised road safety
Here at Czok our experts in St Albans are fully qualified in a range of processes to get your brake calipers performing like new again. We are happy to rebuild, re-manufacture, un-seize, and engineer your brake calipers to suit your designated vehicle.
