Compression Molding Material

05/08/2011 2:30 PM

Dear Friends, I am looking for a material formulation (that includes steel wool, powder metal, graphite, fillers) to produce brake pads without the curing step. Basically this type of product (to my understanding) needs to be cured to attain its full potential this step requires molds additional machinery and labor. I am looking for a means of making brake pads without that second step. A material that once compressed retains its shape and achieves its full functional potential without a second processing step. Can anyone suggest a starting point and sources to get help

Compression molding always requires post mold finishing. Think about it. You do understand how the materials and process of compression molding work?
Please let me know what your level of understanding/experience is before we proceed.

Please also let me know that you know hot these pads get in service.

maybe I should have said pressing only (as in a punch press ) working applying pressure for a short instant as opposed to compression molding (which in my mind by definition would involve heat and time) pressing in a punch press type machine would involve a part of a second. This is really what I want and what I should have written it is a quick and inexpensive action

Sorry for the confusion

If you don't know what you want, I can't help you. You don't know what you want.

Good bye.

Based on the material composition, are you sure you mean 'brake pads' and not perhaps 'brushes'?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brush_(electric)

A description of the application would help. What type of brake is this and what environment is it being used in?

You can start your research here, if some has already researched your idea, you should find it there or here. DJ

In all seriousness..............yes. I have a patent pending, trademark protection for the name in place, and a product that I know people will buy.

I'm in the process of looking for the funding/ help to bring the product to fruition.

If you're serious, PM me.

rufusgiftson,

Are you employed by technical quiz?????????? Are you on commission????????

Every one of your posts here has been to advertise another web site.

I think it's rude of you to never add anything to a discussion except a commercial plug for another forum.

Why not sit on your hands the next time you feel like wasting our time advertising another web site.

I was going to call you a jerk, but it would just get me moderated. So, I'll just keep that thought to myslef.
