- In a drum brake, the friction material is glued or riveted to the brake shoe, which consists of a bent pressure plate and a perpendicular reinforcement plate. During braking, the brake shoe is pushed towards the inside of the drum, creating friction between the coating and the drum.
- The quality of the friction material is crucial.
- High temperatures can cause damage to both the drum and the coating material, resulting in permanent loss of friction.
