The steel fine blanking onto which the friction material is bonded to make disk brake pads for the motorcycle market.
The prime criterion is to have an electroplated coating which offers a good key onto which the friction material can be bonded. The interface between the friction material and the copper plating is crucial to ensure the bond will withstand the lateral force that occurs when the breaks are applied and does not sheer off.
Particular attention is given to the pre-treatment of the backplates making sure that the electroplating is fully adherent and uniform. The deposit thickness of the copper is controlled to meet the customer’s requirements and after plating the parts are carefully packed to keep the surfaces clean and ready to have the friction material bonded to them.
