I've made brake rotors out of Lead, Aluminium, and Copper.

In this video, I make Brake Rotors from scratch auto of Lead, Aluminium, and Copper alloy. I chose these metals because they are very different one to each other.
It was relatively easy to cast Lead and aluminum. The tricky part was to cast copper because of its height melting point ​(1084.62 °C, ​1984.32 °F).
I didn't know what to expect when I tested the brake disc made of copper alloy. I thought it would melt, but it didn't.
For the Rotor made from aluminum, I melted cans made from aluminum alloy Al 3004 / Al 5182 and some Grounding wire Al5052. I was not surprised that it is brittle and breaks into pieces subjected to massive forces.
Lead is very soft and highly malleable. It made a spectacular show in our video; because of the friction, the Disk started melting, spurting like a stream, and solidified instantly before falling to the ground.
Rotors Weigh:
- Original cast iron 3,9 kg/8.5lb
- Lead 8,2kg/18lb
- Aluminium 1,7kg/3.7lb
- Copper 5,6 kg/12.3lb
The moral of the story: Don't make brake Rotors out of Lead :)

This will ensure that the surface is as smooth as it can be. The parting powder the same, I used to keep mine in a hessian sack and pat it over the mould using my hand this gave a finer covering again it helps ensuring the surface stays as smooth as possible reducing machining to a minimum.

The failure on the lead rotor was amazing! The copper actually looked like it could be a viable option. I would be quite interested to see a video where you cast a full set of copper rotors (with some machining to insure they're properly sized and balanced) and test them for performance, reliability, and longevity against standard rotors.

These are pretty nice option when you are broken down on the side of the road in need of a new disk, but happen to have have access to the materials, a furnace, the stuff for the mold, and all the tools needed to make it work, possibly a lathe too, then this is absolutely a lifesaver solution so you can limp home and get a new disk.

@Avetho Жыл бұрын
@@inventor121 Well, Inconel is already used in top-end performance stainless steel rotors, it's stronger than other stainless alloys at high temperatures and has better corrosion resistance, but they tend to be weaker then other stainless alloys when cold so they should be given a warmup lap first on an intense track day. The drawback is that Inconel is very expensive. Roughly $58.95 per pound for Inconel-718 that's been annealed, and can be bought at a minimum size from what I can tell of 1 inch diameter and 12 inches long for 660 bucks. Its not cheap, and it also melts at 1430 degrees Celsius, so good luck melting that down to re-cast it. The better option would be to order a 12x12 plate of 0.375" annealed Inconel-718 for about 1300 bucks and turn it down to a 12 inch rotor. An old 90s Honda Civic has 9 inch rotors, the newer mid-'10s Ford Focus has 13 inch rotors up front, but these rotors are vented and over 10mm thick anyways, and 0.375" is 9.525mm thick so they're a bit skinny for brake rotors anyways. And even then you'd have to make it a 2-piece rotor and bolt it to the bell that holds it to the wheel hub. At least then he'd be free to test the rotor material to the -braking lol- breaking point and put a new rotor on the bell once the old one atomizes itself XD

Awesome video!! Very good idea! The shavings flying off the lead rotor was crazy!!! I was really surprised how long the copper one held up lol I figured once it for red hot the calliper would just squeeze it to thin to even grab the pads lol very interesting and entertaining!
