DURACARB® carbon brake technology
Our advanced DURACARB® carbon disk technology provides a longer brake life,
providing overall cost savings. DURACARB is a heat sink material that offers
lighter weight without sacrificing durability. Because of this, the carbon brake
delivers more landings per overhaul (LPO). These brakes also operate cooler,
with lower brake fluid temperatures for safer operation and longer life cycle.
For example, save up to 700 lbs (318 kg) on Boeing 737NG
For example, significantly longer brake life compared to steel brakes and competing carbon materials
Higher energy absorption capability and faster cooling rates allow for shorter turnaround times
Reduced maintenance and operating costs due to brake life improvement and weight reduction
