Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9850837A1] A rotor (10) for caliper disc brakes and the like has an outer friction portion including an annular support plate (32) having a friction ring section on both of the major surfaces thereof adapted to interface with an associated friction member, such as a brake pad. Each of the friction ring sections is formed of a plurality of circumferentially spaced apart fins (42, 44). Each of the fins, (42, 44) includes a substantially flat friction surface (42a), so that the plurality of such surfaces (42a) combine to define an annular, non-continuous friction surface on each face of the support plate (32). The rotor (10) of the invention combines the strength of a solid rotor with the desirable increased cooling characteristics of a vented rotor.
