One of the innate properties of C/C composite technology is its porous structure within the carbon matrix. Years of research have produced a technology able to control the number and size of these pores as well as the allowance of metal to be placed within, thus creating C/CMC (Carbon/Carbon Metal Composite). By placing metals such as silicon, aluminum,bronze and titanium, Carbonetic has been able to produce certain composites with unique characteristics. Inherent benefits include rigidity, heat resistance and lightness. Creative applications are consequently realized.
The twin disc carbon clutches are the high power capacity clutch that will handle between 500HP to 800HP (1,350kg pressure plate) at the crank. Much smoother operation while driving on slopes or in traffic than metallic multiplate clutches.
This clutch is also available with the Type-R carbon discs. With the Type-R discs, the delivered torque increases sharply at or above a certain disc temperature. When severe operation like a racing start is repeated, causing the disc to heat above a certain temperature, the shuddering becomes noticeable and half clutching becomes less frequent. When discs cools, the smooth operation is restored. The Type R disc is suitable for drag racing.
Note-“Regular” is designed with 20% more clamping force than “Street”. Some applications are special ordered from Japan. Call for availability.
Includes clutch pressure plate, carbon discs, flywheel, and throw out bearing
