Comparative Study on Thermal, Compressive, and Wear Properties of Palm Slag Brake Pad Composite with other Fillers
The attractive performance-to-cost ratio associated with the incorporation of waste material in composite formulations used to produce brake pads has stimulated the idea of exploring the possible incorporation of additional waste materials in such formulations. Thus, the viability of adding palm slag to the composite formulation used in brake pads was investigated, and the results are reported in this paper. In addition, other fillers, such as calcium carbonate and dolomite, were used for comparative purposes. The properties examined included thermal properties, compressive strength, and wear behavior. The results showed that palm slag has significant potential for use as an alternative to the existing fillers in the composite formulations used to produce brake pads.
