BRAKE FRICTION MATERIALS: A MARKET SURVEY

A composition material developed by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) may be useful as an improved vehicle brake friction material. To assist NASA in identifying a potential market for this material, the SRI Technology Applications Team has conducted a survey of the market for vehicle brake friction materials in the United States. The purpose of this market survey is to outline the technical and economic requirements that a candidate composition friction material must meet before it can be considered a viable product. In addition the properties of composition brake friction materials currently on the market have been reviewed to identify those properties that, if improved, would be a useful advance to the product.
