Brake Pad 52

for YAW Brake Application

Main Features

  • Slip-stick free running
  • No adhesive friction
  • Emergency operation qualities (brake disks remain undamaged when brake pads are worn)
  • No corrosion prevention needed
  • Saving in weight of 75 % (against conventional brake pads)
  • In combination with JSF-grease largely insensitive against leaking oils and greases
  • Noiseless Sliding
  • Low Wear Rate

Chemical Resistance

Brake Pad 52 has a high resistance to corrosive media. The material is resistant against different media. Suitability for other chemicals and media should be determined experimentally according to for example DIN 50905 or ASTM D543 

Applications

Brake Pad 52 is a composite material for yaw brakes. The supporting layer consists of glass-fibre reinforced epoxy resin, the sliding layer composed of a compound of epoxy resin, filled with a combination of different solid lubrications and brake additives. The glass-fibre reinforced supporting layer in combination with the sliding layer, which has been applied by a specific casting process, leads to very high stability characteristics and high load capacity and offers very good tribological characteristics with low wear and very good temperature resistance
