Friction composite is an important part of braking system for all types of vehicles especially as brake pad. Asbestos was widely used in pads for its heat resistance, but due to health risks, it has now been replaced by a mix of alternative fibers such as mineral fibers, cellulose, aramid, PAN, chopped glass, steel and other metal fibers. UniMAP WF Brake Pad is a novel brake pad produced by using industrial waste filler such as palm ash, slag, waste metal filler, waste PCB and mineral filler together with the phenolic or geopolymer resin as a binder. The properties such as wear and mechanical are comparable with the existing brake pads in the market.
1. Safe alternative materials to replace asbestos based brake pad.
2. Recycled the PCB and palm ash or rice husk ash waste.
3. Comparable physical and mechanical properties with commercial brake pad.
4. Using low cost material.
This novel product provides the significant benefit by the usage of waste materials especially industrial wastes.
