Woven sheets
WS300 is a high-quality woven brake lining, specially developed for applications such as brake plates and industrial clutches.

Characteristics of lining WS300:
WS300 is a densely-woven, semi-flexible friction material/brake lining. It is based on a yarn spun from a mixture of glass and synthetic fibres, combined with a fine copper wire to improve the strength and heat dissipation characteristics. This impregnate was specially developed to combine excellent friction characteristics with a high degree of flexibility. The high friction coefficient performs excellently in wet, oily and damp environments; these facts make this product particularly suitable for maritime applications.

Characteristics of woven brake lining (brake lining):

  • Very high friction coefficient
  • Resistant to high temperatures
  • Very strong
  • Oil resistant
  • Seawater resistant
  • Flexible
  • Custom-made

There are different possible installation methods for the brake lining. The most commonly used method is the vulcanisation (gluing) of the brake lining on the brake/friction strips and/or brake shoe. During this process the brake shoes are placed in a high-temperature oven. For bolts and rivets, the head must be countersunk into the brake lining. This requires the use of a special countersink drill bit.

Brake lining WS300 is supplied as standard on a roll (see below: roll dimensions). It is also possible for us to supply the dimensions you require, cut to size.

Roll dimensions:

Width: 400 mm maximum     Thickness: 2 to 5 mm  Length: 1 meter maximum

Uses of brake lining:

  • Brake plates
  • Brake shoes
  • Industrial clutches (Cone clutches)
  • Offshore applications
  • Crane building
  • Mechanical engineering
