Wollastonite in Phenolic Resins

Brake pads and linings must be able to withstand the application of emergency braking at 200 kmph as well as mountain descents during which they reach a temperature in excess of 500 °C. The pad/lining brakes the vehicle with the disk or drum by means of friction. Only through careful coordination of the individual components’ considerable wear and poor braking can be prevented. In recent years, the development of brake pads/brake linings has led to the use of environmentally friendly raw materials as a substitute for asbestos, which is critical to health.

Fundamentally, Friction Pads/Linings Fulfill Three Tasks Safety

Great importance is attributed to the good running-in properties of friction linings and constancy of the friction coefficient throughout the entire braking process, with hot or cold brakes, in the wet and cold, and with salt, grit, and dirt, or when decelerating from a high speed. The components used must be corrosion resistant, must have high strength, and must not be combustible.
