The effects of composition brake blocks on adhesion were investigated by the DB. The measurements were analyzed statistically and the results plotted in the form of curves. Generally, lower adhesion values were ascertained when braking with K blocks than when using cast-iron blocks. As such an effect is only acceptable if it is small, severe testing is, in this respect, considered to be necessary when submitting K blocks to acceptance tests.
