The brake pad is located between the back plate (backing plate) and the rotating element (brake disc or drum). During the braking process, the brake lining (friction lining) is pressed mechanically or hydraulically against the (usually) metallic friction surface. A modern brake pad has a multi-layer structure (backing plate, "underlayer" and composite friction material).
A brake pad must have the following properties:
- constant coefficient of friction
- temperature stable
- mechanically resilient
The IAG systems ensure the smooth production process in a fully automatic state, produce coverings from powder to polymerized coverings
