A Study of the Interactions Between Phenolic Resin and Metal Sulphides and their Contribution to PAD Performance and Wear

2020-10-02
In order to keep the coefficient of friction stable, some additives such as metal sulphides, are included in the brake pads formulation. Previous work from RIMSA has shown that oxidation temperature range of the metal sulphides can be one of the key properties to explain their contribution to the performance and wear of a PAD. This new work is a step forward in the interpretation of the mechanism of sulphides as chemically active additives in the brake pads. Phenolic resin is the matrix of the brake pads and starts to decompose around 300 ?C in presence of oxygen and temperature. In order to establish a connection on between sulphide oxidation and phenolic resin degradation, several studies based on heat treatment of blends of different metal sulphides (Iron sulphide, Tin sulphide and Composite sulphide) with phenolic resin have been done. Then the material evolution was studied with techniques such as TGA - DSC, XRD, IR and SEM - EDS.

Impact of Microstructure of Coated and Non-Coated Grey Cast Iron Rotors on their Thermal Properties

2020-10-02
Friction interaction between brake materials see a rise in temperatures of over 1000 oC contributing to thermal fade of brakes and deterioration/cracking of rotors. Various microstructural features like alloying, graphite morphology and size, morphology and contents of pearlite and ferrite could influence the thermal properties and related friction performance of the brake materials. Even more relevant impact on thermal properties of rotors can be expected after their coating by ceramics. The primary purpose of this research is to identify the impact of microstructure on thermal diffusivity of a commercially available ASTM A48 Class 30 gray cast iron brake rotor and an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of Ford F150 combined with effects of ceramic coatings. Thermal diffusivity is a relevant property controlling the speed at which is heat dissipated from friction surfaces.

Impact of Ceramic Coatings on Grey Cast Iron Rotors on Friction Performance of Automotive Brakes

2020-10-02
Increasing concerns towards non-exhaust emissions from friction brake engagements has led researchers to explore coatings for brake rotors with the aim of improving their corrosion and wear resistance. The development of regenerative braking systems also adds to the thrive towards a better environment through increasing power conservation and decreasing friction interactions by ~ 5-20% reduction in the friction brake engagements compared with traditional friction braking systems. This research focuses on friction performance of a typical ASTM A48 Class 30 gray cast iron brake rotor and an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Ford F150 brake rotor, both coated with a newly patented ceramic coating, tested against commercially available low metallic (LM) aftermarket brake pads. The friction performance was evaluated according to ISO/SAE J2522 test procedure carried out using a scaled down bench top wear tester (Bruker Tribolab).

Performance of Particle Oxidation Catalyst and Particle Formation Studies with Sulphur Containing Fuels

2012-06-18
The aim of this paper is to analyse the quantitative impact of fuel sulphur content on particulate oxidation catalyst (POC) functionality, focusing on soot emission reduction and the ability to regenerate. Studies were conducted on fuels containing three different levels of sulphur, covering the range of 6 to 340 parts per million, for a light-duty application. The data presented in this paper provide further insights into the specific issues associated with usage of a POC with fuels of higher sulphur content. A 48-hour loading phase was performed for each fuel, during which filter smoke number, temperature and back-pressure were all observed to vary depending on the fuel sulphur level. The Fuel Sulphur Content (FSC) affected also soot particle size distributions (particle number and size) so that with FSC 6 ppm the soot particle concentration was lower than with FSC 65 and 340, both upstream and downstream of the POC.
