Brake Pad Temperature Tribology

A brake pad is a composite material made up of multiple ingredients, that must be able to satisfy a large number of safety requirements. Ideal brake pads have high coefficient of friction (COF), low wear rate, minimal noise, and remain reliable under varying environments. To ensure the quality of brake pads are able to satisfy their requirements, tribology testing can be used to identify critical specifications. The importance on the reliability of brake pads are placed very high; safety of passengers should never be neglected. Therefore, it is key to replicate operating conditions and identify possible points of failure. With the Nanovea Tribometer, a constant load is applied between a pin, ball, or flat and a constantly moving counter material. The friction between the two material is collected with a stiff load cell, allowing collection of material properties at different loads and speeds and tested in high temperature, corrosive, or liquid environments.
