In rear wheel drive vehicles ranging from passenger cars to heavy duty trucks, transferring torque from the drive shaft to the rear wheels creates both mechanical and frictional challenges. The rear differential divides torque between the two tires equally at all times while allowing the
tires to rotate at different speeds.
AvCarb woven carbon friction material provides OEMs a valuable tool in managing the ‘slip’ between the rear wheels. The durability, low wear, and smooth frictional characteristics of AvCarb materials ensure stable performance over the life of the vehicle, even in difficult duty cycles such as those of heavy duty mining equipment.
