Riveting of Friction Materials

Riveting of Friction Materials

Many businesses use friction materials, often in ways that are unseen yet essential. Friction Services Ltd are specialists in friction materials. Whether you are looking for the manufacture, refurbishment or riveting of friction materials, they are the specialists of choice for many businesses. What are friction materials, why are they important, and why might your business need services like riveting of friction materials from Friction Services Ltd?
Friction materials are substances which are designed to create friction. Friction is a force that acts against an object to prevent it moving. Friction is a fundamental force of nature. Friction allows us to walk, for example. When you put your foot to the floor and push, instead of your foot sliding away, your body is moved forwards in a walking motion because friction prevents your foot from sliding. However, if the floor were to be wet and soapy, the friction would reduce and your foot would slide away, possibly resulting in you falling over.
Friction materials are used to deliberately create friction. This is common in many machines and vehicles that have moving parts. This is for two main purposes. Firstly, friction can be used to slow down an object. For example, think about riding a bike. If you are travelling too quickly, you squeeze the brake lever, which applies a brake pad to the wheel rim or disk. The resulting friction slows the bike. This is a principle for brake pads in modern cars as well as vintage and classic automotives, which allow the car to come to a controlled stop. This is also used in various industrial machinery, as well as cranes.
Another use of friction is to make something move, as in a clutch in a car. When one side of the clutch contacts with the other, the friction generated makes the clutch spin providing movement to the car. This is an essential principle for any vehicle with gears, including a commercial truck, trailer or bus.
Using friction materials requires being able to attach them to other objects or machine parts. There are different ways including adhesives, welding and riveting of friction materials. For services like the riveting of friction materials it is important to use a company that is experienced. Using the example of riveting of friction materials, if the job were to be poor quality, the friction materials could perhaps move or shake, which would affect the performance of the whole machinery. If the part was used for braking or transmitting power, the quality of the riveting of friction materials could significant impact on the performance or safety of the whole system.
