The key to the superior performance of the SL6 comes from the extremely durable, efficient and lightweight body design. Starting at 5.06, pounds it is the product of computer generated solid modeling and FEA stress analysis technology. Full length stiffening ribs and a reinforced radial transition from the piston bore housings to the closed end bridges have produced the strongest Superlite caliper bodies ever built. When compared to open bridge calipers that use tube or stand spacers between the body halves, the closed end bridge design is measurably stronger with less separation or deflection under load. Additional strength and resistance to deflection comes from the four high-strength steel end bridge bolts. A fifth center bridge bolt provides even more overall strength and easy access to the pads without the need to remove the caliper from the mount.
A unique six-piston differential bore configuration provides balanced loading for even pad wear in sustained high heat environments. The standard SL6 calipers feature one-piece stainless steel pistons. Stainless is used for its slow heat transfer properties and high resistance to corrosion. The SL6/ST models feature Wilwood's exclusive Thermlock® pistons. This multi-part piston design creates a highly efficient thermal barrier to further reduce heat transfer from the pads to the caliper body, seals, and fluid. Cooler temperatures translate to longer service life and less chance for heat induced pedal fade.
In addition, each SL6 is equipped with SRS bridge plates. SRS plates eliminate all bridge wear caused by pad gouging and extend the service life of the caliper. The spring-loaded action of the SRS plates also eliminates pad rattle and dampens the harmonic vibrations that contribute to pad squeal. Two piece bleed screws and dampened fluid tubes are recess mounted to shield them from track debris and other potential damage sources. High temperature, square faced bore seals provide the largest possible sealing area and controlled piston retraction on release. The full range of Wilwood pad compounds is available to match the brake response and heat range of any competition or sports driving application.
Calipers in this group feature a full width reinforced rib outboard body for maximum strength when caliper to hub or caliper to wheel clearance is not an issue. These calipers are primarily used for asphalt stock cars, road racing, and other competition applications with small 5 on 5 or other OE type lug patterns. The caliper bridge radius will clear rotors from 11.75" to 13.00" in overall diameter. Each caliper in this group uses 7420 type 20mm thick pads.383.27Brand: Wilwood Part Number: 120-7228-RS
Wilwood Engineering designs and manufactures high-performance disc brake systems. Since founding in 1977, we have developed a substantial matrix of brake components and engineering techniques that allow us to quickly and reliably create brake systems for almost any application. Their core ability is the rapid development of custom engineered brake systems using a combination of off-the-shelf and custom components. In addition to designing and manufacturing brakes for all types of competitive motor sports, Wilwood also manufactures brake systems and components for agricultural equipment, industrial applications, utility vehicles, snowmobiles, quads, motorcycles and military vehicles.
