Paper Friction Bonding
Paper friction bonding is just like it sounds, bonding with a thin type of friction material, from .020 to 1/16 of an inch and is often found in oil clutch and brake applications such as transmissions, steering clutches, and high torque and heavy-duty machinary applications. It can also be found in industrial applications as well, such as the automotive and agricultural industries. Paper friction bonding is usually oil-based to keep materials cool, but can also be used in certain dry applications. Several types of materials can be used, such as standard brake material, cork, or Kevlar, depending on the particular performance needs of the application.
