Authors Abstract
Abstract: The following presentation would like to draw the attention to alternative friction lining formulations based on inorganic binders which can result in new, future-proof friction lining materials. First characterizing tests of the new inorganic friction materials (IFM) can give an overview of the capabilities and potentials. Dyno-tests have been carried out on passenger cars as well as commercial vehicle brakes. The aspects of high-temperature stability in the fading tests of the AKM- and AMS tests and the incombustible nature of the binder, as well as the reduction in PM10 emissions compared to classic organic friction materials, make these materials particularly fascinating for applications in passenger car as well as in commercial vehicle applications. In the future, the energy-savings potential of this type of IFM lining will be of particular interest when sustainability considerations further influence our development activities in the friction material industry at large. Keywords: Inorganic friction materials, sustainability, friction tests, particle emissions, low-energy manufacturing and processes, LIQFRIC®.
