FTL136 is one of the ICP range of non-asbestos friction materials. It is a rigid, moulded product and is manufactured from a variety of mineral fibres.
FTL136 is not suitable for operating in oil.
The frictional characteristics of FTL136 in both its initial flexible and heat treated states are virtually identical. It exhibits excellent temperature and wear resistance and is quiet in operation. This material is manufactured with a ground surface on both sides so may be bonded on either.
This material was specifically developed for attaching to brake-shoes by bonding and is unsuitable for rivetting.
