Brake lining in roll
It is manufactured and used mainly for the manufacture and regeneration of brake shoes in cars, machines and various industrial applications. Most often, it is glued directly to the shoe by means of resin-based adhesives, and then cured, which means that during the bonding it must remain at the temperature of 180 degrees for at least 30 minutes. We offer two types of bands in regard to the material. The first is FR - very high quality and GR - standard material. Since the manufacture of FR bands has ceased, it is being gradually withdrawn from sale. On the other hand, GR is manufactured in many versions and for example, there is a version with a reinforcing steel mesh, which allows it to be riveted directly onto the shoes (even large ones), and also makes it possible to use it in areas that bend during the operation. One of the unusual applications we have had the opportunity to produce, was a brake for an anchor, the job of which was to brake and slow down the anchor during lowering. It is also used in bands for the hand brake in agricultural tractors and in bands for automatic transmissions. This material is very resistant to shearing after riveting , but retains its flexibility. Another type of band offered by us is a woven band, which is made of glass fibres impregnated with friction materials, and more precisely speaking, the friction material is pressed on. It is a band used in equipment such as elevators. Our brake rolls are used for the manufacture or regeneration of brake shoes for cars and trucks as well as in construction and agricultural machines and other industrial applications. We offer three types of brake bands:
- GR brake rolls made from rolled material. It is used in the automotive sector and in industry due to the high quality - friction parameters and high flexibility. It is designed primarily for bonding.
- GR brake rolls made from rolled material reinforced with a steel wire. It has the same properties as the standard band but has a higher shear strength - it can be riveted.
- Woven rolls. It has excellent friction properties and can be used in band brakes - friction bands. In operation, it can bend and does not cause cracking of the material. We have all the popular sizes of bands. We are able to manufacture missing sizes. We recommend Plastilock - an adhesive for friction materials.
