EBC manufacture 90% of its rotor range in ISO and TÜV approved facilities in the UK or in Italy, all rotors including GD Sport Rotors are machined and finished in the UK and in the USA. Where castings or finished rotors have been bought in to complement the range, the strictest quality controls you can imagine ensure the safety and quality of the parts we sell. EBC adds value to its products by strictest quality controls and specifications and a 100% run out and dimensional check, plus all USA sport rotors are slotted at the Las Vegas facility of the USA operation. We employ 14 people in our USA rotor machining facility alone and have a bank of 8 HAAS and Feeler CNC machines using the latest CNC controls and tooling for superb accuracy.
EBC brakes now produces all of its GD series and USR discs with a new, long lasting corrosion resistant finish. The coating is either the world famous thermic or for less popular smaller batch items we use the new NITROTHERM™ process of anti corrosive paint applied using this revolutionary process that coats with warm Nitrogen producing a better finish.
EBC Brakes has 14 machining centres in these two countries to manufacture these precision parts. Rotors are made from high quality grey iron to exacting standards and undergo extensive testing and rigorous quality control and are then precision machined to your chosen slot or dimple pattern.
The dimple drilled rotor was invented by EBC back in the 90’s and has been imitated by many because of its ability to offer pad degassing without “Through Drilling” disc or rotor holes which has been shown to promote rotor cracks.
The wide aperture slots on the EBC units actually draw cool air under the brake pad and rotor interface and help cool the temperatures of the pad contact which can shoot up to well over 1000 degrees at the very heart of the brake pad during heavy braking and can cause brake fade or loss of brake effect.
These “Full sweep” slots on the EBC Sport Brake rotor also help remove dirt dust debris and water from the braking area but without doubt the main benefit of such sport rotors is their ability to maintain a flat and parallel pad surface throughout the lifetime of the brake pad set.
Direction of Rotation of EBC GD Disc Rotors
EBC GD Sport Rotors are directional “LEFT and RIGHT” which is nearside and offside of your vehicle. The sweeping grooves and spotted pattern should be pointing to the rear of the vehicle.
