Abstract: Composite materials are the combination of two or more materials which are different in form and chemical compositions. These are gradually gaining more importance as structural materials in the present day engineering design and development activity; this is because they offer very attractive physico-mechanical properties. Hence composite materials can be used in automobile brake, aircraft and marine components, wind turbine blades, heat insulators, sporting equipment etc., Brake is a very important part of an automobile which causes safe emergency stop with certain predetermined distance and it was made of asbestos and continuous use of asbestos leads carcinogenic and lung disorders due to these causes use of asbestos was banned during 1990’s. Hence attempts are made to develop new eco-friendly brake friction materials for automotive applications using Glass-Epoxy FRP composites filled with Coconut Shell Powder (CSP) to estimate mechanical characteristics.
Keywords: Eco-friendly Brake Friction Material, Coconut Shell Powder, Mechanical Characteristics.
