Default Kodiak Brake Question

Are to Dacromet rotors and calipers the same as the Silver-Cadmium? I don't see the Silver-Cads on the Kodiak website any longer. Are they the same material with a new name or something entirely different? If they are new, anyone know how they compare as far as corrosion resistance?

Dacromet is a 'new age' coating, supposedly better than the cadmium. Neither hold a candle to Kodiak stainless ...

I was told to avoid the stainless rotors as they warp. I went with dacromet rotors and stainless calipers and have been very happy so far.

Yes, they warp and they're 5x the cost of the Dacromets. The rotor is a wear item and the stainless will not last 5x longer than the Dacromet. So from a cost basis, the Dacromet rotor is the way to go along with the stainless calipers.
