Wear and friction behavior of disc brakes are important properties of disc brake systems and are mainly addressed by appropriate selection and tuning of friction material. Disc material composition is often considered as “given”. The most common material used for brake discs is grey cast iron which can have carbon content between 2.5 to 4.2 percent. It is difficult to find in literature investigations related to the influence of cast iron material in combination with modern low-met friction material on wear and friction performance of disc brakes. In this work, the author will try to analyze impact of brake disc material properties on wear and friction performance.
