Production-related process temperatures and their sequence in the production of the linings require a high level of thermal energy for the manufacturing of the brake linings. The multiple heating- and cooling cycles of the linings in production, and especially the steel backing plates, require a lot of energy. Due to the low hardening and process temperatures, around 85% of the process energy currently required can be saved with phenolic bonded brake linings. In the case of sinter metallic linings, this value improves considerably, since the process temperatures are significantly higher.
We would be happy to show you which savings potential can be achieved with our LIQFRIC® process.
