Brake drums

  • 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.
