Oil on the clutch lining

Our development professionals were presented with the following challenge:


To protect valuable machinery, a friction lining  was to be developed, which would remain fully functional even if oil entered the system.

The PZ Friction solution

We developed a special friction material. The material already demonstrated exceptionally good results in normal, dry operation. In addition to this, its friction value demonstrated a very low level of variation when oil was added. The negative characteristics of leaking oil were compensated using the specially developed friction material. Therefore all machines can be shut down without damage even in the worst case.
