Influence of increasing amount of attapulgite on the performance properties of Cu-free brake-pads
It is always desirable to search for ingredients for Cu-free brake-pads, which will be beneficial for friction-related properties and especially fade resistance. Attapulgite, is a mineral which was proven to be excellent substitute for asbestos in brake-pads long back. However, hardly anything in details is reported on its exact role in controlling tribo-properties of friction materials (FMs). It was of interest, if it can be helpful in enhancing performance of Cu-free FMs.
The Effect of Wollastonite Silane-Treatment on Mechanical and Tribological Performance of Brake Pads
International Journal of Surface Science and Engineering
The current study aims to investigate the effect of silane-treatment of wollastonite on the mechanical, tribological performance of non-asbestos organic frictional brake pad material. Two main friction lining specimens in the shape of brake-pads containing treated wollastonite (Wt) and untreated wollastonite (Wu) were produced to carry on the experiments. All produced samples were characterised and examined for their mechanical, chemical and tribological properties.
