Brake shoe friction materials are critical elements of every vehicle. The advent of hybrid and electric cars, regenerative braking and modern safety regulations are key motivations to develop brake friction materials. Brake materials are typically evaluated by standard protocols such as SAE J2522 on a full-blown dynamometer. The test involves evaluating behavior of a friction material at varying pressures, speeds, temperatures and deceleration conditions.
