Brembo has showcased its new PVT Plus system at the 26th Autopromotec trade show in Bologna – the latest addition to its family of pillar venting technologies.

The supplier says road car brakes can overheat, potentially generating thermal cracks and breakage at the disc surface. Vane venting technology has been used to overcome this problem historically.

Brembo maintains with its PVT Plus venting system, the pillars – 30 to 40 of them arranged on three bands depending on the disc diameter – have a more elongated form compared to previous models.

This increases thermal cracking resistance by up to 30% and ensures longer disc life.
