Advantages of Gasar-Materials for Brake Shoes and Plates 2000-01-2756
The high thermal conductivity is one of the most important properties of materials used for brake shoes and plates manufacture. Besides these materials should have a high friction coefficient, toughness and endurance. The metalplastic compositions are widely represented among the materials used now, however they have low heat conductivity coursed in limitation of transport driving capabilities. For the solution of this problem, we offer to apply recently created porous materials - gasars with monolithic metal matrix and cylindrical (or ellipsoidal) pores charged with abrasive powder. The tests have shown, that Gasar brake components have higher thermal conductivity and combine properties of solid metal and frictional material.
