Sintered metal technology

There are two types of braking materials : sintered materials and organic materials. Only sintered materials can answer to requirements such as powerful braking, heating, underwater, mud / dust use, and cold reactivity.

Sintered metal brake pads are made based on powders. The friction product contains at least ten ingredients (Bronze, ceramics, graphites...). Each of these ingredients makes the friction mixture, which is then compressed in a device that will give it its final shape. The obtained item is then positionned on its metal support and then heated in a 900+°C oven.
It's the sintering process : a constituent of the product melts, consolidates the material and makes it fuse with its support. The brake pad is then rectified, checked and packed.
