BRAKE FRICTION MATERIALS: TESTING, QUALITY AND SELECTION
This seminar will provide an introduction to brake lining
The choice of brake friction materials varies per application, but each must have the appropriate coe°cient of friction and be able to disperse large amounts of heat without adversely eecting braking performance. This seminar will provide an introduction to brake lining raw materials and formulation, manufacturing, quality control and testing. The course covers the critical elements that must be reviewed before arriving at a lining selection decision. Dierent classes of friction material and their use will be defined. LEARNING OBJECTIVES By attending this seminar, you will be able to: • Describe the principles of friction • Define the basic elements of friction material formulations • Identify the dierence between OE and after-market friction materials • Identify appropriate tests to distinguish the dierences between friction materials • Interpret friction material test results WHO SHOULD ATTEND Brake system designers, quality control auditors, product development engineers, application engineers, lab/bench/vehicle test technicians, managers/friction material sales and marketing will all gain valuable insight into this highly guarded industry. CONTENT HIGHLIGHTS • Principles of Friction Materials • Lining Coe°cient of Friction • Formulation/Compounding Friction Material • Manufacturing Friction Material • General Asbestos/Non-asbestos Friction Material Characteristics • Friction Material Testing • Edge Code • Bench & Vehicle Tests • Wheel Dust Test • Government Regulations • OE and After-market Friction Material Lining Selection • Issues Facing Friction Material Industries • Workshop INSTRUCTOR
