Preparation, Testing and Comparison of Friction Composites

Co-authors VACULIK Miroslav, KUKUTSCHOVA Jana, FILIP Peter

The article describes the preparation of the resin-based friction composite samples for the standard passenger car type, its mechanical testing and comparison with commercial brake pads. The composition with low content of metallic particles was designed. Using a matrix-heated laboratory press were prepared several samples of our composite. One of the components is also graphite with nanometrical particle size range. The matrix shape has been chosen considering the real brake pad shape for Skoda Octavia passenger car. Manufactured samples were subjected to brake dynamometer testing measurement using SAE J2522 testing procedure. Further, a comparison focused on efficiency and wear was made.
