Permanent Deflection of Two-Layered Clutch Plates - - How to Reduce the Deflection of Two-Layered Clutch Plates - 2004-01-0740

Two-layered clutch plates manufactured by a new process using BMC show a significant deflection. Two methods solving such deflection were alternatively developed in this study. Changing the composition of the clutch plate appeared to be useless while after-curing on deflected clutch plates was effective. Thermal cycles or high pressure for after-cure did not reduce the deflection. However, applying after-cure with a sloped mold reduce the deflection without increasing the disk density.
