Brake Lining Industry Resins

The high-performance phenolic lining resins produced by Çukurova Kimya show a character that increases the braking performance and extends the service life for the automotive sector and rail systems.

Linings are one of the most important parts of the brake system in vehicles. These phenolic resins are preferred in the production of linings thanks to contributing the high thermal stability, flexibility, high mechanical strength and good friction properties of the linings.

It is used in the production of brake pads, clutch linings, brake shoes for trains and system equipment that requires braking in industry. Resins compatible with these processes can be produced in powder form with the addition of performance additives and hexamethylenetetramine (HMTA). These resins can be modified with Cashew Nut Shell Liquid (CNSL) and Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) or with anti-dust additives.
