An enquiry was made to member organizations to gather information on the interest in and experience with the use of non-metallic brake blocks for railway brakes. Information was also sought from the literature on this subject. The interest in non-metallic brake blocks is very great, and it seems that there introduction may result in economical advantages, no steps of any importance have so far been taken for the drawing-up, on an international level, of specifications for these brake blocks. Only a few organizations have gained sufficient experience of many years standing or have introduced these brake blocks on any appreciable scale.
