Ceramic

Ceramic Transmission Discs


Ceramic materials are more commonly known for their use as clutch buttons which are fitted to a number of clutches for applications such as performance automotives, heavy duty trucks & agricultural tractors etc. The ceramic friction material acts as an insulator by reflecting heat away from its surface. The following are properties that are associated with this type of material:

> High durability
> Good wear resistance
> Long life
