Friction materials—also known as brake materials and clutch materials—are used to induce friction in situations where slow or decreased movement is necessary. Friction is the resistance to relative motion that opposes an object’s direction of movement. Friction is created when a solid object comes into contact with a diverging surface. Friction can be used anywhere from slowing or stopping an object to accelerating it to a certain speed. Read More…
