APS BlackSteel Brake Discs and Linings
Improve braking performance
BlackSteel Brake Discs
The high quality APS BlackSteel brake discs are one piece forgings, eliminating weld failures. BlackSteel forged discs are machined and then put through a proprietary heat treating process that strengthens the steel by bonding the carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen in the top layer of the metal. The process is not a coating, but a transformation of the top layer of the metal, providing corrosion resistance. The reduction of corrosion, pitting, rusting and longer service life result in enhanced safety, durability and value, while providing optimum braking performance and strength.
Metallic and Semi-Metallic Brake Linings
APS semi-metallic brake linings are impregnated with Kevlar fibers for optimum performance. APS metallic brake linings are constructed from an innovative design and durable materials, providing longer wear and superior stopping power for greater safety.
Eligibility depends on the wheel, brake, and aircraft make, model, and serial number. Please see the APS catalog information or click "View Eligible Aircraft" and read any applicable comments to verify and/or determine eligibility.
