Determination of Friction-Wear Performance and Properties of Eco-Friendly Brake Pads Reinforced with Hazelnut Shell and Boron Dusts

Brake pads are the most important component of an automobile braking system. In recent studies, brake pads have been produced by varying the constituents of existing compositions and by making new formulations with other friction materials. This study evaluated two sets of asbestos-free automotive brake pads produced from boron oxide (6%) and hazelnut shell (7%) dusts and seventeen other components. All ingredients were mixed and pressed to manufacture the sample eco-friendly brake pads in the same shape as commercial Clio pads. Hardness, porosity, compressibility, shear and wear tests were carried out on the samples, and the test results were compared with those of the commercial pad.
