What Causes Brake Rotors To Warp?

What Causes Brake Rotors To Warp?

Brake rotors are necessary because they spin with the wheels and stop them when the brake pads press against them. The brake rotors generate a lot of heat during the braking process, which needs to dissipate quickly so that the brake pads can be pressed down again. This intense heat can cause the surface of the brake rotors to warp over time, a phenomenon known as warping. This can cause your vehicle's brakes to become less effective and jittery. Why Do Brake Rotors Warp? Brake rotor warping is not as bad as it sounds. Actually, warping is an uneven surface caused primarily by heat. Warping of brake rotors can occur in the following ways: The brake pad material has the potential to glaze the brake rotors. This occurs when the brake pads become extremely hot, allowing material to fall onto the brake rotors. As a result, the surface of the brake rotor becomes uneven, reducing the overall effectiveness of the brakes. Furthermore, the surface of the rotor can deteriorate, and certa ... read more
