The woven “A-Block” material is a premium non-asbestos brake lining developed especially for oil field use on draw-works, well servicing and drilling rigs. Extensive field evaluations confirm that this product provides outstanding performance in this demanding application area. It exhibits smooth, long lasting trouble-free service with excellent burnishing or bedding-in properties with reduced abrasion for increased rim life. This premium performance material is available in the form of custom sized slabs or rolls.

Notes

For Normal and Hot Coefficient of Friction (SAE J661):
Friction values shown are for guide purposes only since values deviate with changes in temperature, pressure and speed. Practical design should include a 25 to 50 percent safety factor.

For Maximum Operating Rubbing Speed and Pressure Limits:
Rubbing speed, drum temperature, and pressure are directly related. Changing any one value will change the others. The values shown represent typical conditions, but are not the ultimate limits of the material.

For Drum Temperature for Constant Operation:
Rubbing speed, drum temperature, and pressure are directly related. Changing any one value will change the others. The values shown represent typical conditions, but are not the ultimate limits of the material.
