Goonvean Fibres offers a wide range of Natural and Synthetic Fibres for Brakes

Brake Pads

Fibres & Flocks

Goonvean Fibres offer a range of short cut aramid, acrylonitrile, cotton and hemp fibres and flocks for use in friction plates. These fibres and flocks are widely used as reinforcement and process aids (pre-form production) in friction products, high temperature/pressure hoses, gaskets and seals. They are used in the production of two wheel and four wheel light and heavy use brake pads and in some rail products.

Short cut aramid fibres and flocks are widely used as reinforcement and process aids (pre-form production) in friction products where high temperature and wear resistance are important. Aramid fibres are also used by gasket and seal manufacturers for use in aggressive environments.

Acrylic fibre flock is used in fire resistant paints for safety reasons and improved coverage. Under high temperatures the fibre expands into a foam like material without burning, this expanded foam bridges gaps and cracks that resist the spread of fire and also helps to prevent smoke transfer. Addition of fibre depends on gap to be covered and burn time requirement e.g. 5% for 30 minutes and 10% for 60 minutes depending on the other materials in close proximity i.e. untreated wooden doors will be breached faster than sealed frames etc

Acrylic fibre flock is a polyacrylonitrile fibre used as an alternative to asbestos for the manufacture of brake pads and clutch plates. The fire resistant properties of the material also make it an ideal choice in intumescent applications such as paints and sealants.

Natural fibres and fibre flocks such as cotton, hemp and other cellulosic-based fibres are increasingly used to reinforce products in a growing number of applications. Many global companies looking for less reliance on oil based synthetic flocks where precision cut lengths are less critical are investigating the use of an environmentally acceptable alternative.

Composites are made up of individual materials such as fibres to provide a combined reinforcement solution for weight, strength or cost reduction. The different fibres impart their special mechanical and physical properties to enhance matrix properties and produce material properties unavailable from the individual constituent materials. An example of where fibre composites have proven to be successful is in the manufacture of brake pads where a more expensive fibre has been partially replaced by a less expensive material without a significant reduction in performance.

Capable of milling various materials from 250 micron up to 12,000 micron. If you have a requirement for commissioned milling please contact enquiry@goonveanfibres.co.uk

Goonvean Fibres can offer precision cut fibres (in continuous filament form) using rotary and guillotine cutters. Capable of cutting from 0.25mm up to 50mm. For further information please contact enquiry@goonveanfibres.co.uk
