Surface Transforms are experts in the development and production of carbon-ceramic materials and the UK’s only manufacturer of carbon-ceramic brakes for automotive use. Surface Transforms utilises our proprietary next-generation carbon-ceramic material – CCST – to create lightweight brake discs for high-performance applications, including automotive and aircraft brakes. Surface Transforms has extensive in-house engineering and manufacturing capabilities, including the facilities for manufacturing carbon-ceramic brake discs.


Our material is a next-generation Carbon Fiber Reinforced Ceramic (CFRC) which is produced by Surface Transforms’ proprietary processes, transforming Carbon-Carbon into our Carbon-Silicon Carbide (CSiC) ceramic.

Whilst the carbon-ceramic discs you find on production road cars conventionally use discontinuous (chopped) carbon fiber, Surface Transforms interweaves continuous carbon fiber to form a 3D multi-directional matrix, producing a stronger and more durable product with 3x the heat conductivity of standard production components, this keeps the brake system temperature down and the brake performance consistent.

Surface Transforms has developed unique patented next-generation Carbon-Ceramic Technology that provides the ultimate braking performance for road and track. Here’s seven reasons why you need this technology on your vehicle:

  • Weight savings of up to 70% compared to iron brakes (typically 20kg of unsprung weight)

  • Improved handling and driveability

  • Improved NVH (less noise, vibration and harshness)

  • Improved performance (in both wet and dry conditions)

  • Reduced brake wear – giving increased life

  • Corrosion Free

  • Outstanding performance, even from cold


Surface Transforms works with a number of automotive manufacturers including mainstream OEMs and niche market/low volume car builders, designing and supplying carbon-ceramic brakes for a wide range of application. Surface Transforms is able to manufacture and supply brake disc assemblies to your specific requirements.

Our next-generation brake technology uses continuous-carbon fibers rather than chopped-fibers found in traditional carbon-ceramic brakes giving significant benefits over our competitors products:

  • Better heat management – allows for lightweight design and /or improved performance

  • Lower wear rate and oxidation rate – increased life

  • Consistent performance at all operating temperatures

  • Reduced brake disc and pad wear – giving increased life

  • Competitively priced and without tooling costs

  • Product can be refurbished – extending product life

This is in addition to the standard benefits of carbon-ceramic brakes over traditional iron construction:

  • Weight savings of up to 70% (20kg approximately) – improving handling and driveability whilst reducing CO2

  • Improved performance (in both wet and dry conditions)

  • Corrosion Free – less brake dust


Surface Transforms next-generation carbon-ceramic material is ideal for many motorsport applications due to it’s lightweight construction, high level of performance and durability. Although Carbon-Carbon brakes (as used in F1) are often cited as the ultimate in motorsport brake performance, Carbon-Ceramic brakes may be more suitable for your specific vehicle, providing most of the performance at a significantly lower cost.
