Automotive brake friction products consist of all the components that assist in either stopping or reducing the speed of the vehicle. Automotive brake friction products comprise various products, such as a brake pad, brake drum, brake shoe, disc and liner. Usually, a brake pad consists of an asbestos or a semi steel plated back facing the brake disc. They convert the kinetic energy of the vehicle into mechanical energy and assist the vehicle in stopping. Moreover, in disc brake systems, two brake pads are contained in a caliper that is mounted on the disc. In case of drum brakes, brake friction products, such as a brake shoe, push outward and stop the rotating motion of the brake drum.
Brake friction products are available in the market with different specifications depending upon the type of vehicle. During the braking process, brake friction products are subjected to wear. Attributing to this, many OEMs focus on manufacturing brake friction products that are capable of sustaining the generated heat. In order to improve the friction resistance properties, brake friction products are made of composite materials. Furthermore, various types of filler materials are also added while manufacturing brake friction products in order to improve their mechanical strength.
