Excessive heat can cause resins in your brake pad to vaporize or "outgas." As the brake pad wears, the used friction material turns into a fine dust. This boundary layer of heat, gas and dust builds up between the pad and rotor surfaces and inhibits performance. Here's where StopTech SportStop slotted brake rotors make a big difference. These types of rotors aren't always best suited for the performance oriented car, but more for the daily driver by offering more reliable braking in traffic and reducing the slip on rainy days.
The benefit of having the rotors drilled is to release gases caused by heating up the friction material on the pad which can cause brake fade. Another benefit is to reduce heat on the bad and rotor, this gives a better chance of cool air flowing through the veins out of the drilled holes.
The benefits of slotted rotors is to remove dust and gases keeping the pad to rotor surface area clean and fresh allowing for a stronger bite when braking.
