Material Types - Paper Friction Material

Paper as a friction material

Although produced by the paper making process these materials are in fact elaborate composite structures.
We now have many formulations available, which offer different characteristics, energy levels and co-efficients of friction.

The material is blanked from a sheet and bonded to the steel core plate, final sizing and of the material is done during bonding. The extremely important groove pattern would be the last operation before final inspection.
Porosity can be as high as 70%.

There is a close relationship between the dynamic and static coefficient of friction which is a distinct advantage for the designer.
