Effect of temperature on moulded friction materials

Experimental investigation of dependence on temperature of dynamic coefficient of friction of commercially available materials transmitting friction force in clutches and brakes is described; it was found that coefficient of friction starts decreasing at some elevated temperature and then, at some still higher temperature, assumes lower stable value; study shows that temperature causes breakdown of deposited intersurface film; breakdown is cause of decrease or fade in coefficient of friction; recovery time is shorter for higher loads and speeds.
