Friction Material Testing

Brake pads are the most important component of an automobile braking system. It help in smooth retardation of a vehicle and finally bringing it to halt. Brake pads convert the vehicle’s kinetic energy into thermal energy by friction. The effectiveness of the brakes depends completely on frictional material used, which in turn affect the performance of the brake pads. Manufactured brake pads can be tested for coefficient of friction, wear, shear strength, compressibility etc. We offer products for various friction material charecterisation
