Surface analysis on a brake rotor of automotive tire

A brake rotor is an important component of an automotive brake system. X-ray fluorescence analysis is widely used to understand elemental information of a brake rotor surface.

For example, elemental analysis on a brake rotor after brake dynamometer testing provides insights on the friction properties and friction mechanism. The information also provides feedback to reduce brake friction debris which is one of the negative by-products of automotive brake systems from an environmental point of view.

The XGT-9000SL’s large chamber capacity allows you to put whole a brake rotor and carry out spectrum analysis and elemental distribution imaging on the rotor surface, non-destructively. Of course, it can accommodate other components of a brake system, such as brake pads.
