OGAB® Sustainable Braking

The patented Ogab® Sustainable Braking system offers increased safety levels, optimised brake performance and significantly reduces the damaging environmental impact caused during the product life cycle of disc brakes and pads.

Patented breakthrough technology that offers maximum braking performance and powered only be energy that would otherwise be lost. Excessive heat escalation in the brake discs and pads is prevented to offer optimised operational temperatures and improved safety levels.

The Ogab® Sustainable Braking system increases safety levels and optimises braking performance through improving the operational temperature of disc brakes.

This prolongs the life of the disc brake through preventing product degradation due to friction and heat.

This prolonged lifespan results in significantly reducing the damaging environmental impact caused by excessive manufacturing of both discs and pads, as well as the endless struggle that follows when the discs need to be recycled.

The toxic emissions that are released due to the burn up of the pads at high braking temperatures is also reduced. This reduction in particle emissions is beneficial for both the health of the environment and all members of society itself.

So what's the story with disc brakes?...Scroll down to get the facts.

Offering better safety for all, Ogab® Sustainable Braking gives the solution to a problem that affects us all in our day-to-day lives. Follow the timeline below to learn how Ogab® can help save us from further damage to the planet we all share.

We all rely on cars, trains and aeroplanes in our day-to-day lives, yet they all compromise our safety through inefficient disc braking systems which quickly degrade under extreme temperatures.

That means the risk of unpredictable stopping distances, potential brake failures and overall passenger safety levels reduces to the point where it becomes unacceptable.

Not just in transport but also on wind turbines, disc brakes operate at extreme temperatures causing fires that disrupt or even destroy the wind turbine itself. 

On our railways, the tracks are regularly damaged by the metal buckling that is caused by the brakes operating at high temperatures. This causes cancellations and delays as well as the serious risk of carriage derailment.

On planes, the operational braking temperatures are even higher, creating the very real potential of a major aviation disaster.

Every time we use our brakes, harmful toxins are released from the burn up of the pads, adding to the man-made damage causing harm to a world we all share.

The solution so far is simply to produce an endless number of inefficient disc brakes, consuming massive amounts of energy and adding to the world’s pollution.

This is followed by an endless struggle to recycle the discs, which due to the high temperatures required to melt them has a huge carbon footprint. In some cases the used discs never make it to a recycling facility and are simply left by the roadside.

Ogab® Sustainable Braking enables us to prolong the life of brake discs and significantly reduces the damaging impact they have on the environment.

By optimising the brake temperature for maximum performance and efficiency, Ogab® Sustainable Braking offers better safety for all.

Using state-of-the-art technology and by utilising energy that would otherwise be lost, Ogab® has developed the solution for safe and sustainable braking. Through road, rail and aerospace, Ogab® offers innovation for a brighter future.

THE FACTS

7 billion
The number of disc brakes on the 1.4 billion vehicles that currently populate our roads globally.
4000 kg
The amount of harmful C02 in kilograms that’s released into the environment for every 200 car disc brakes that are produced.
13960
The distance in miles you would need to drive a standard car to reach the same level of C02 emissions that are released when producing just 200 disc brakes.
1400
The number of family homes you could power for 24 hours with the amount of electricity that is consumed when producing the disc brakes for only 50 cars.
