FRICTION DUST (Friction Particles) are specialty products used as additives in Manufacturing of Friction Material (Automotive & Industrial) like Brake Linings, Disc Brake Pads, Railway Brake Blocks and Clutch Facings etc to stabilize the Friction level. Cashew Friction Particles is cross linked Phenolic Polymers derived from Cashew Nut Shell Liquid (A Natural Phenol) by using an exclusive process to give the desired Friction properties.
Liquid C.N.S.L Resin
LIQUID C.N.S.L. RESINS are speciality resins manufactured from specially refined Cashew Nut Shell Liquid to be used as a liquid binder in wet process to manufacture Friction Materials like Brake Linings, Disc Brake Pads, Railway Brake Blocks, Clutch Facings and Roll Linings etc for economical Processing, better flexibility and soft matrix. These are lower to very high molecular weight product, derived after a long research, keeping in mind the requirement of Friction Material manufacturers, in different viscosities. These resins can be supplied in 100% solid or special solvent cut to serve different requirements.
For Friction Industry Sona Meta Chem, with the well equipped R&D laboratory compounds; produces disc pads in flush and/or positive moulds and tests the friction behavior either by “chase” or by “full scale” friction test machines. By this way the best compatible raw materials are being developed and produced for the friction industry.
Sona Meta Chem is in a constant R&D process in order to increase the number of the engineered raw materials used in friction industry.
A natural mineral in silicate form –Silvery white to Golden brown in colour .
Adhesive premix is compounded by using the very special Resin/Polymer combination of Sona Meta Chem, With the structure of binders and the high fibrous matrix of the adhesive premix the holding capacity of the back plate and friction material is considerably higher in heavy operating condition (such as higher temperatures, higher shear forces) than traditional glues.
Cashew Phenol (Cardanol)
A Distillate product of Cashew Nut Shell Liquid ( A Natural Phenol ).
A finely ground, white powder of Barium Sulphate.
