Cellulose Paper

Friction Material by Type  /  Cellulose Paper

Although produced by the paper making process, these materials are in fact elaborate composite cotton structures with a variety of reinforcing fibers including aramid, graphite and carbon.

Paper’s stable friction co-efficient and strong abrasion resistance and porosity make it an ideal material for wet wheel brakes and clutches, power transmissions and static brakes.

The material is blanked from a sheet, bonded to a steel core plate and then grooved in any number of patterns to achieve the optimal flow of oil across the friction face.
