Development of Organic Reinforcement Composite Materials for Brake Pads 2023-28-0069

Commercial brake pads are being wind down because of asbestos fibre which causes carcinogenic effect. By observing it is obligatory to analyse about the alternate materials for brake pads additionally there are heaps of alternatives for asbestos furthermore to develop an organic composite material for brake pads using organic fibers including grind orange peel and banana peel as the reinforcement material. Disparate alternatives for filler materials and different binders such as epoxy resin, phenolic resin and distinctive organic materials used to alter the material for asbestos fiber and studied miscellaneous possible formulations and their effect on the performance of the brake pads by varying the reinforcement composition from 20% - 30%, binding material from 30% - 40%, filler materials as 17.5%, friction modifiers as 22.5%, and fabricated the material for brake pads using grinded orange peel and banana peel as reinforcement further performed hardness test and wear test to compare results among samples. The hardness is greater for the composition R 25% + EP 35%. And the same composition has less wear. The optimum content of reinforcement is 25% and for epoxy resin is 35%. In comparison between composite materials made with orange peel powder and banana peel powder as reinforcement, the samples made with banana peel powder has better braking performance than samples made with orange peel powder.
