HHR Performance » TK Brakes
The TK record comes from the passion for mechanics and the elegance of Made in Italy. The TK self-ventilating disc has been designed to fulfill the most demanding commitments of the competitions. The processing of every single piece is carried out with machines with CNC from solid. The braking part is composed of a chrome silicon alloy which acquires a unique friction coefficient through thermal processes in a controlled atmosphere. For the connection parts to the wheel hub, an Ergal alloy is used, always obtained from solid. To check for any defects in the material, use penetrating liquids and magnetic flux, which gives a unique safety. The effectiveness of the disc can already be guessed at the first visual impact - the particular conical perforation exploits the Venturi principle This translates into the following advantages: excellent cooling (Tests have resulted in a 20% reduction in temperature compared to conventional discs) significant reduction of fading from overheating, consequently more safety less weight with consequent reduction of the gyroscopic effect excellent cleaning of the pads greater modulation of braking even in the presence of damp environments (rain and atmospheric agents such as mud, dust, etc.)

More About TK Brakes
1. MATERIALS: The materials we use for production are the result of years of on-going research and development on race tracks. The quality of these materials combined with the particular shape of the disc also ensures less wear of the disc. The materials are all certified and the disc production process is via a chain allowing full traceability of the finished product; 2. WEIGHT: the particular drilling increases the removed material with the same diameter of the hole and the consequent reduction of the gyroscopic effect (-250g disc for the SBK version); 3. PAD CLEANING: the equidistant holes make the heat distribution even (tests carried out have shown a reduction in temperature compared to conventional discs of approximately 20%) significantly reducing “fading from overheating” while inclined drilling allows fast discharge of any impurities such as: friction material, mud, water, etc.. 4. MODULATION: the distribution of the holes modulates the braking action while keeping the pad clean and increasing safety on wet or slippery conditions. 5. RESIDUAL TORQUE: a significant reduction in residual torque due to the pads being clean, greater cooling and constant thermal distribution (better sliding action in a straight line and in the middle of a bend). The particular drilling helps keep the pads efficient and constantly revive.
