Experimental Analysis and Fabrication of Coir Fiber Disk Brake Rotor

JASEM Front Page

This study presents fabrication of composite disk brake plate using coir fibre composite and also experimental testing of coir composite disk brake. The Disk brake of material we are making vehicle Brake Disc using Bi-directional glass fiber with epoxy resin along with coir fiber as reinforcement material with catalyst as silicon carbide .After the fabrication Three point bending (Flexural test),Impact Test ,Ultimate Tensile Strength, Wear Tests are conducting on the composite disk brake.

Keywords:Disk brake, coir fiber, Hardness testing
