FRICTION MATERIAL

MIOX® in Brake Pads and Linings


Minerals like Iron Oxides, Micas and Wollastonites are common ingredients in friction materials formulations. Wollastonite, Muscovite and Phlogopite provide best performance advantages when they have a high aspect ratio. MIOX® is mainly used as a mild abrasive in NAO or low metallic formulations due to its moderate hardness and excellent temperature stability. Its lamellar structure supports a stable coefficient of friction and is the biggest performance difference compared to commonly used granular iron oxide.

  • Stable, moderately high coefficient of friction
  • Increased heat transmission
  • Reduction of wear
  • Improved NVH behaviour
  • Optimum shear strength and compressibility
  • Cracking reduction
  • Reduction of water absorption
  • Good processability
