Today’s engineers and designers rely on the properties of ceramics to an ever greater extent. As well as established applications such as rotary seals and pump bearings, new applications are being explored all the time. One such development is ceramic friction materials for clutches. Ceramics offer unbeatable combinations of properties, from wear and corrosion resistance, dimensional stability through to light weight and high temperature capabilities.
