DESCRIPTION AND APPLICATION
Thanks to the revolutionary formula used for its construction, this material features excellent friction properties, minimum wear, and optimum stability for use at high temperatures.
SWR is an asbestos-free composite woven from finely carded yarns containing brass wire. It’s a dense, tough material that exhibits resistance to heat and compression under load.
Very low noise emission during perforation (rotary and sliding) and movement.
Capacity to dissipate heat also beyond 250 °C, thereby preventing cracking and hardening of the brake liner.
The result is a better mechanical grip and life duration two or three times longer than that of classic fabric brake linings or similar products available on the market.
Greater braking coefficient, resulting in softer stops and fewer jerks.
No wear around the bolt, hence no play between the brake liner and drum, and consequently the usual vibrations are eliminated.
OVERALL ECONOMIC ADVANTAGES
Low noise emissions allow low-cost soundproofing of the probe table and the possibility of having a small area depending on the noise emissions. Longer life prevents one or two costly plant shutdowns necessary for replacing worn brake liners.
Reduced vibrations and greater mechanical grip make it possible to reduce band wear and avoid sudden kickback on the winch.
