Wet Brakes, Multi-Disc Brakes for the Construction Industry
Backhoes, bulldozers, front-end loaders, and excavators across the globe are supported by GMP Friction components in winches, torque limiters, wet wheel brakes, wet disc brakes, dry braking, transmission discs, parking brakes, and multi-disc brakes.
As for all our markets, GMP Friction has also produced niche products for the construction market. A case in point: a winch manufacturer needed a material that could absorb high energy per unit area, with a high coefficient of friction, for a winch brake used in a very compact environment and with a constant slip application generating tremendous heat. GMP Friction Products was able to develop the ideal high-energy friction material to meet all their requirements, and one that’s also free of friction fade as well.
