New Brake Materials Are Now Available

Advanced Non-Stick Friction Material

For cold room and outdoor environments: Altra engineers have developed a proprietary friction material specifically designed for cold room and outdoor environments with high moisture levels and wide temperature differentials.

Most standard friction materials tend to get sticky and loose their effectiveness in these cold, harsh conditions.

Altra’s new friction material has proven to retain stable torque in between static parking and high energy service and emergency stopping during rigorous climate chamber and endurance testing, as well as extensive field testing.

The new material is available on all PK Series motor brakes.

High-Speed High Energy Friction Material

High Speed High Energy Friction Material

For high-capacity braking requirements: The new W134 friction material has been designed to equip the CBTB series. This non-stick material can also be fitted on other brake series in certain conditions. Previously, the standard material was able to handle 57kJ at 900rpm, however, the new W134 is able to handle up to 190kJ at 1300rpm.
