Carlisle Brake & Friction is recognized as the global leader in original equipment & aftermarket severe duty paper friction technology. We manufacture a variety of low to high density organic, graphitic, low met and carbon papers. These discs are specifically designed for power shift transmission, steering clutch, differential lock up and wet brake applications.
There is no substitute for Carlisle’s HDT graphite discs. This unique and proprietary friction technology is only available through VelveTouch aftermarket distributors, rebuilders and original equipment manufacturers. These discs are specifically designed for power shift transmission, forward and reverse clutch and wet brake applications. HDT graphite is a refractory, non-metallic friction material with high power absorption capability and smooth engagement characteristics.
Steel opposing plate quality is critical to the durability & performance of friction discs and motion control systems. VelveTouch steel opposing plates are manufactured with only the highest quality hot & cold rolled steel. Carlisle’s state of the art stamping presses and high speed laser cutting equipment produce both aftermarket and original equipment parts. All steel opposing plates go through additional secondary operations and quality inspections to ensure proper flatness, parallelism, surface conditioning, structural strength and fitment.
Carlisle Brake & Friction manufactures advanced technology, semi-metallic brake pads for some of the most severe applications on the planet. From motorsports to mining equipment, our semi-metallic materials provide superior performance under the most brutal braking conditions. Carlisle’s semi-metallics are available in a variety of application specific formulations. Each formulation is engineered to provide superior fade resistance, friction wear, opposing plate wear and coefficient of friction levels when used in hot or cold brake applications.
Carlisle Brake & Friction organic friction expertise spans a broad range of non-asbestos material technologies. Our organic friction materials are produced in various forms including cloth, composites, fabrics and cellulose paper, and are utilized in transmission, wet brake and industrial motion control systems.
As an original equipment supplier, Carlisle Brake & Friction understands the need for different friction material technologies for the heavy duty transmission market. We offer proper friction material technology for each application. The transmission disc materials we offer are graphitic, HDT, paper, sintered metallic (bronze and iron based), and steel.
Carlisle Brake & Friction develops and manufactures the most advanced wet friction materials in the world. Our extensive original equipment and aftermarket experience allows us to produce a variety of friction materials that have surpassed the rigors of any wet friction environment. Our wet friction materials last longer and provide more power transfer than any other aftermarket supplier. We offer an extensive line of wet friction parts engineered for specific applications.
Carlisle Brake & Friction’s semi-ceramic brake pads dramatically reduce annual maintenance costs and increase vehicle up-time with superior friction and opposing plate wear life. Also available are a variety of industrial equipment brake pads formulated with application specific friction materials. Carbon semi-metallic disc brake pads are designed specifically for the extreme performance requirements of police and ambulance fleets. Our pad’s maximum stopping power and brake reliability are two key features that provide officers and EMT professional with driving confidence.
