Abstract: In present study, it has been understood that the life of Disc Brakes can be increased by improving the Wear and Thermal resistance of Disc Brake rotors. Thus, a specimen of TVS 200 mm Disc Brake rotor was chosen to conduct the tests to show the improvements in wear and thermal resistance using Titanium Aluminium Nitride coating on the material. The specimen is tested for finding out its properties and the coating that is already being used. Then, standard tests for Wear resistance and Thermal resistance are conducted for before and after coating criterions to show the improvement in the properties after coating the brake rotors with Titanium Aluminium Nitride.
