Metallic and Semi-Metallic Brake Linings
Two types of brake linings are available: semi-metallic/organic (abrasive) and metallic (adherent). The part number of the brake assembly as determined by the OEM dictates which type of lining is to be used.
The semi-metallic linings are made with Kevlar fibers integrated into the material, providing the greatest stopping power and long lining life. The optimal operating temperature of the semi-metallic linings is 600-900 deg F.
The main ingredient in the metallic linings is iron. In an adherent system, a thin layer of lining material transfers and adheres to the disc during break-in. The optimal operating temperature range of the metallic linings is 950-1200 deg F.
