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
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.
