Comparison

WP Pro Brakes emphasizes their strengths into the design, manufacturing, and quality of all our braking products.  It is important for us to analyze our competitors to ensure we are producing top level products for one of the most important vehicle functions.

WP Pro Brakes

  • 6061 T6 aluminum alloy
  • 2000 Ton forging process
    • Forging Aluminum the load density is +300% greater than die casting.
    • Forging Aluminum has highly reduced chance of breaking, even with extreme impact.
    • Forging Aluminum production costs are about 100% higher than the Die-Casting.
  • CNC (billet)
    • CNC Machining process is more complex than with die-casting
  • Any color (anodize)
  • Powder coating
  • 6/8 pistons (SS304)
    • Machining process between 4/6/8 pistons per caliper
    • Cost comparison – (x1) stainless steel Piston = approx (x2.5) aluminum pistons
  • Radial mounting
  • Stainless steel bleed screw
    • 1 Stainless Steel Bleeder can buy 3 Normal Steel Bleeder
  • (x3) piston seals
  • 6.3mm transfer pipe
    • SS transfer piper and fittings
    • Transfer pipe manufactured in Japan
  • FC26-28 (Cast Iron)
    • Hand made production – More expensive process expensive than mass production
  • Cured vent (Fan)
  • 336mm x 30mm
  • Multi step 800C procedure
    • Expensive heat treatment. (HRB 94-98 degree)
    • Treatment undertaken before CNC rotor machining
    • CNC machining of cross drilling/slotting and 6061T6 rotor hat.
    • Zinc anodize for rust protection of iron rotor ring
