Through numerous investigations, in the European E-Brake project, revealed the potential use of High Pressure Cold Spray technology to produce a film of friction material on a low carbon steel substrate.
This is the result presented by CRdC Tecnologie Scarl in the study “High-Pressure Cold Spray Coatings for Aircraft Brakes Application” recently published in the journal Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, a pioneer in open access academic publishing since 1996. For further information
The study evaluated tribological (friction coefficient and wear rate) and thermal properties, as well as coating hardness and adhesion to the low-carbon steel substrate to produce high friction and wear resistance composite coatings, for aircraft brake surfaces.
