ROLLOFACE performance brake pad compounds make more noise than others. Proper anti-squeal shims attached to the pads aid in noise reduction. The customer is responsible for any noise problems due to pad selection.
BRAKE ROTOR “WARPING”
The term warped rotors is often incorrectly used in reference to steering wheel vibration or judder when the vehicle brakes are applied. The cause of this condition is not a permanent distortion (warping) of the rotor, however, but rather a previous unsuccessful machining of the rotor by a service provider or the non-uniform transfer of adherent pad friction material. Thickness variation, brake pad material buildup and other wear-related conditions that may occur during normal or improper use of the product are expressly excluded from warranty.
CHANGES TO TERMS AND CONDITIONS
ROLLOFACE reserves the right to change these Terms and Conditions at any time without prior notice, and purchaser’s continued purchase of parts constitutes acceptance of those changes.

All Rolloface brake components come with a one year limited warranty for defects. Rolloface is not responsible for improper care or maintenance of brake components after sale.
All brake pads must be bedded-in with the rotor they will be used against to maximize brake performance. The bedding-in process involves a gradual build up of heat in the rotors and pad compound. This process will lay down a thin layer of transfer film on to the rotor surface. Following the bed-in procedures provided by the manufacturer will assure a smooth, even layer of transfer film on the rotor and will minimize brake judder. Here are a few things to keep in mind when installing new rotors and pads:
When installing new pads, the rotors should be new or at least resurfaced to remove any transfer film from the previous set of brake pads.
It is critical that the installer clean any rust, scale, or debris from the hub mounting surface thoroughly and check it for excessive run-out with a dial indicator gauge before installing the rotor.
The new rotor should also be checked for excessive run-out using a dial indicator gauge before the caliper and pads are installed. If a rotor has excessive run-out of over .004″ (.10mm) it should be replaced.
If your new rotor has excessive run-out, please contact our customer service department for a replacement rotor. Do not install and drive using the rotor! Rotor manufacturers will not warranty a used rotor for excessive run-out. Running with excessive run-out on the hub or rotor will cause vibration issues.
Failure to follow these procedures may result in brake judder, excessive noise, or other difficulties in bedding-in the new brake pads. The pads need a fresh surface to lay down an even transfer film. Residue from the previous pad compound on the surface or an irregular surface on a used rotor will cause the pads to grip-slip-grip-slip as they pass over the rotor surface under pressure. The resulting vibration will cause noise and telegraph vibrations through the suspension and steering wheel. This vibration is known as brake judder or brake shimmy. This is typically caused by an uneven transfer film on the rotor surface or an uneven surface on the rotor not allowing that transfer film to develop evenly.
Bedding-in new pads and rotors should be done carefully and slowly. Rapid heat build up in the brake system can lead to warped rotors and or glazed brake pads. Most brake pad compounds will take up to 300-400 miles to fully develop an even transfer film on the rotors. Following in the recommended bed-in procedures from Rolloface Performance:
400 to 500 miles of moderate driving is recommended. Consumer should avoid heavy braking during this period.
After installing new pads make 6 to 10 stops from approximately 35 mph with moderate pressure. Make an additional two to three hard stops from approximately 40 to 45 mph. Do not allow the vehicle to come to a complete stop. When completed with this process, park the vehicle and allow the brakes to cool completely before driving on them again. Do not engage the parking brake until after this cooling process is compete.
Brake fluid will damage both the finish of brake caliper and the paint of car, please use clean water to rinse caliper immediately after brake flush and bleed! And it may causing color damage by using strong cleaner (i.e. wheel cleaner) on a caliper, use at your own risk.
After installation of big brake kits, your steering may have a little bit shaking during heavy braking, the shaking problems might comes from your suspension or control arms, since the car is still using factory chassis(not racing chassis) and with a big brake system set up(too much stoping power for the stock chassis, suspension system, control arms), so you might wanna check if the rotors angle is straight or calipers installed correctly, or your control arms, that’ll help you reduce the shaking or noise problem together. But there is no need to worry about if you can’t stop or drive your car safely, this is normal and common.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Please note that big brake kits and components should only be installed by experienced mechanics with a good understanding of big brake systems.

Powder coating knowledge base
Q: I’ve heard that many fluorescent or neon colors aren’t UV stable. Is this true?
A: Yes, fluorescent colors have limited UV stability even when a clear top coat is introduced. The color may eventually fade or discolor over time.
Q: Can you give me an approximate range of time before a fluorescent color “may discolor” or fade?
A: It is difficult to reference a specific time in which the color will begin to fade or discolor as there are so many variables that can affect the outcome. By adding a clear, the fluorescent color’s UV stability is extended, however, the color will still fade with prolonged light exposure.illustrates what can happen when chemical cleaners are used on powder coating. Even cleaners that claim to be “non-acidic” and “pH neutral” can have solvents or petroleum based chemicals that could harm some powder coated finishes. Metallic finishes that have not been clear coated are especially at risk of staining because the chemicals in the cleaners can cause the metallic to oxidize. Always follow the directions listed on cleaners but be aware that some cleaners that claim to be safe on powder coating can actually damage the finish.
*To reduce the risk of damaging the finish, we only recommend cleaning powder coating with a mild detergent soap and warm water. A soft bristled brush can be used for more stubborn stains such as brake dust on calipers & rotor center hats.*
How To Care For Powder Coating
We ONLY recommend using:
Mild detergent soap and warm water to clean powder coating
Harsh chemicals and other cleaners can harm the finish
Powder coating is an incredibly durable finish, however, it isn’t bullet proof or completely impervious to damage. Much like the paint on your car, powder coating should be maintained to ensure the longest lasting finish possible. Powder coated items should be routinely cleaned of pollutants that can settle on the finish and begin to degrade the coating.
Leaking Hydraulic Lines
The brake fluid lines that run from the master cylinder to the wheels are incredibly thin and fragile for a number of reasons. First off, moisture that’s accumulated in the fluid can potentially freeze and rupture thin walls. Furthermore, corroding lines can slowly leak and eventually lead to catastrophic brake failure while driving. Terrible winter road conditions often push iffy lines over the edge in many cases.
Damaged Internal Seals
If you don’t change your brake fluid on schedule, it’ll eventually develop a dangerously high moisture content. Freezing and thawing could wear down internal seals to such an extent that braking performance is seriously impacted. A bigger danger is the tendency of automotive fluids to thicken as the mercury drops. Thick fluid is harder on seals within the braking system and damages components without creating an obvious leak.
Seized Calipers and Shoes
As grime builds up on calipers, it will eventually work its way into important internal components. That can lead to calipers that either under-perform or seize up entirely. The same thing can happen with older rear drum brake setups given enough contamination. Seized calipers or shoes will wear out brake pads quickly and cause a lot of damage if the situation isn’t rectified in short order.
Stuck Emergency Brakes
Road dirt and gunk can eventually build up to a point where it messes with mechanical parts like emergency brake cables. If you don’t use your parking brake very often, it can result in a seized cable that locks up during sub-zero conditions. Electronic automatic parking brake systems are especially prone to locking up when it’s extremely cold out.
Corroded Brake Rotors
All of the salt, sand and ice that eventually builds up on rotors can seriously affect your braking performance if left unattended. While your rotors are made of polished iron, they’re still vulnerable to the same environmental conditions that make any metal part rust. Ultimately, corroded rotors lead to uneven wear and “pulsating” brakes that feel dangerous and fail to stop your car adequately when it matters.
Protecting Brakes from Winters
When you’re staring a few month winter in the face, you’re often more concerned with your car starting every day than brake problems. Before the snow flies, have a local automotive repair shop give your car a full brake bill of health to ensure that no surprises crop up before spring.
