There is a growing push right now in the transport industry to go greener by reducing brake particle emissions. How can you effectively minimize brake system pollution? A newly enhanced nitrocarburizing technology by NITREX is able to reduce brake wear emissions while also improving brake performance.
Keep reading for more information about this innovative technology and to access articles, brochures, videos, and other resources.
Nitrex's Smart ONC® technology is a dual heat treatment method that combines nitrocarburizing with in-process post-oxidation to increase the corrosion and wear properties of brake rotors in a cost-effective manner. Treated brake rotors minimize brake dust and particulate matter, resulting in much lower particle emissions.
Download the technology brochure to learn more about Smart ONC®.
New standards like the Euro 7 are requiring the transport industry to reduce particle emissions from brake systems.
How can Nitrex help? Brake rotors treated with our enhanced nitrocarburizing technology exhibit negligible corrosion, which means that they produce less airborne particle emissions from vehicle brakes—a win-win for industry and the environment. Get to know the many ways this ferritic nitrocarburizing technology can help optimize brake rotors. Get the free white paper for more details.
