Friction materials are the components of a mechanism that converts mechanical energy into heat upon sliding contact. This article discusses the selection criteria, manufacturing process, and applications of friction powder metallurgy materials. It provides information on the manufacturing process of powder metallurgy friction materials through a process of mixing/blending, compacting, and sintering. The final machining that they undergo, to ensure that they meet dimensional specifications, is also discussed.
