A New Idea for Improving Heat Fade Performance of Organic Based Friction Materials
A new idea for improving heat fade performance of organic based friction materials was invented; the method is to dope high specific heat material to the matrix for increasing the specific heat capacity of matrix. In this paper, selecting mullite as additive, organic based friction samples doping mullite were prepared by thermoforming methods, the specific heat of samples were analyzed by TG-DSC, and its friction and wear were tested by GB/T 5764-1998 in China. The results show that doping mullite to matrix can dramatically improve the heat fade performance of organic based friction materials, the friction coefficient of samples can keep steady among 0.3-0.4 when the test temperature is from room temperature to 350°C,while the friction coefficient of the reference samples without mullite decline from 0.38 to 0.19.
