Webb Wheel’s New LifeShield Technology Protects Rotors from Corrosion
March 11, 2014 - Products
Webb Wheel disc brake rotors are now available with an added barrier against corrosion to extend rotor life and replacement intervals. Webb’s new LifeShield technology creates an invisible protective layer across the entire rotor surface to resist corrosion beyond what traditional coatings offer.
Vehicle testing through an entire winter on roads treated with salt and other anti-icing compounds resulted in significantly less corrosion build up on rotors with the LifeShield protective barrier than standard treated rotors, according to the company.
LifeShield is a heat treatment process that not only adds increased corrosion protection but also provides better wear resistance.
