Friction material or brake material or clutch materials are mainly used to apply friction in the conditions where there is requirement of slow or decreased movement. In systems that require particular contact interactions between two or more components, friction materials are used. Elastomeric, graphitic, paper, and sintered metals are some of the common substances which ae used in the production of the friction material. They are used as brakes in cars and other vehicles. They usually convert the kinetic energy into heat so they can slow or stop a vehicle. Brake pads, clutch plates, friction bands, brake shoes, bonded assembles and other are some of the common products in which friction materials are used. They are widely used in industries such as railway, construction, aerospace & marine and automotive as well.
