ETEK Technology

Friction Material Analysis (PDF) - The ETEK measures the Elastic Constants of Friction Materials including automotive brake pads.  This report uses ETEK technology to analyze the variability of automotive brake pads, showing the need for high-quality analysis of friction materials in design and manufacturing.

Reports generated by the ETEK

The ETEK gathers relevant Elastic Constant data.  The following sample reports demonstrate the type of data that the ETEK can provide

The ETEK can also report on Uniformity of samples. The following Uniformity Analysis articles show how the ETEK can be used to analyze the uniformity of as-manufactured intact brake pads

ETEK performance

The ETEK's measurement performance, quality and reproducibility were evaluated through a round-robin process.  The results are posted here:
