Characterization of Brake Pads by Variation in Composition of Teak Wood Powder and Rice Husk Ash
Keywords:brake pads, teak wood powder, rice husk ash, motorcycle
AbstractMotorcycles in Indonesia have increased. So, part of the motorcycle increases, especially for brake pads. Asbestos brake pads are prohibited because they have the potential to cause lung cancer. Therefore, alternative brake pads material is needed that are more environmentally friendly. Teak wood powder and rice husk ash are underutilized waste to be used as alternative materials for making brake pads. This research is to determine the characteristics of the mechanical properties of composite materials made from rice husk ash and teak wood powder. The research method used is experimental. The manufacture of brake pads includes mixing materials, pressing, and heating processes. Brake pads are subjected to hardness testing, heat resistance testing, density testing, wear testing, and braking distance testing. The results of this study get the highest hardness test value of 5.821 HV, the highest density of 1.32 gr/cm3, the results of the braking distance test are 4.12 m with a retarding value of 3.67 m/s2, and the wear test results are 2.22 X 10 -6 mm2/kg. Special heat resistance test that meets the SAE J7661 standard with a heat resistance of 3600C for 1 hour.
