COMPOSITION BRAKE BLOCKS-METALLIC INCLUSIONS IN THE COMPOSITION BRAKE BLOCKS
Metallic inclusions is given types of composition brake blocks lead to excessively severe wear of the tires and of the blocks. Recent experience has shown that not all composition brake blocks are affected by metallic inclusions. A list indicates those composition brake blocks which, according to data collected up to mid-1969, are unaffected or are affected only in certain isolated instances by metallic inclusions, and which therefore behave favourably with respect to undue wear of the wheel-tire. The list also shows which organizations obtained these favorable results, with which type of vehicles and in which kind of service.
