Abstract :

All over the world, Coal-fired power plants generate huge amounts of fly ash each year. Less than 40% of all fly ashes generated applications and rest have to be disposed off which is burden for the power generation industry. Fly ash particles possess certain characteristics that make them suitable for use in friction composites as a filler material. An attempt has been made through this research to incorporate more than 50% of fly ash particles in automotive brake lining friction composites. By this paper I  present the research carried out on development of friction composites, using fly ash.Ingredients such as phenolic resin, aramid pulp, glass fiber, potassium titanate, graphite,aluminum fiber and copper powder were used in the composite development phase, in addition to the fly ash. The developed brake lining composites have exhibited consistent coefficients of friction in the range of 0.35–0.4 and wear rates lower than 12%.The developed compositions are 50–60% lighter than current commercial brake linings for similar friction, wear and temperature performance under dry and wet conditions. Fly ash particles were found thermally resilient enough not to decompose at typical braking temperature.
