Successful research programme allows high performance brake discs to be manufactured at lower cost from recycled carbon composite material   Print  
Prototype testing of the recycled carbon brakes involves extreme temperatures, shown by this white hot disc during dynamometer simulation of a high speed train emergency stop Tuesday, 5th January 2010

A specialist consortium, supported by government investment, is developing braking systems that solve a range of challenges across multiple industries. Federal-Mogul’s friction expertise will play a key role in delivering a durable and effective product, opening significant new opportunities for the company.

Carbon composite brake discs provide substantial improvements in both performance and weight compared with traditional iron discs, but the cost of such systems has so far made them largely unaffordable in the majority of applications (including commercial vehicles, trains, industrial equipment and all but the most exotic cars) where their performance characteristics could bring substantial benefits. A UK-based consortium of specialist companies is addressing this challenge by developing new techniques that will allow carbon discs to be made from manufacturing scrap, providing a lower cost, more environmentally friendly solution to very high braking performance.
