Kevlar® aramid fiber contributes strength and wear resistance to asbestos free friction materials. The efficient strengthening provided by Kevlar® aramid makes it possible to select inert fillers on the basis of thermal and wear characteristics with less concern about other physical characteristics of the filler.
The resulting asbestos free friction materials can thus outperform the incumbent asbestos materials in critical applications.
