Has anyone here ever worked with Cryogenic Treated, Drilled and Slotted Brake Rotors?

Asked by Jun 02, 2013 at 05:11 AM about the 2011 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've dealt with them for the past 2 years but haven't come across anyone (outside my shop or the Manufacturer) that has dealt
with them.
We use some double treated deep-frozen (Cryogenic) rotors and specific pads.
They take forever to break in although they don't seem to warp under repeated extreme use.
Anyone else?

I havent heard of them. Are they high dollar?

Yes. www.metal-wear.com. We buy them a pallet at a time for our cruisers. Approximately $140 Each. 3 times the life of a stock rotor in extreme service situations. I was hoping to find someone that has experience with them too.

Yes, I put them on my 2004 Impala that does a lot hills and highways in new england in all kinds of weather. I got so tired of the so-called quality rotors that would still warp so easily, even from the dealer. My frustration led me to research it and I decided to try the Centric cryo-treated rotors. They were double the price but it's been almost 3 years now and 35K+ miles and I have to say they really are still like brand new. I stayed away from the drilled rotors since a friend mentioned that putting sand on the winter roads can result in pebbles getting stuck in the drilled holes. Frankly, the slotted and drilled were also more money. The real difference to me was the cryogenic treatment.
