FERODO-branded friction products are known to ensure reliable stops. Founded in Chapel-en-le-Frith (UK) in 1897,
FERODO Railway was the first company to supply the London Underground (1907) with blocks and the first company to
manufacture brake pads for railways.
High-grade organic LCC and high-temperature brake pads
FERODO offers extremely high-grade organic LCC and high-temperature brake pads. The pads feature excellent friction
stability and higher friction material flexibility, which helps to reduce the formation of hotspots on the brake discs. All of these characteristics ensure that the friction surface combinations improve the durability of the brake pads and brake discs. In cooperation with railway operators, brake system suppliers and rail vehicle manufacturers, the Federal-Mogul team develops on optimised organic friction surface combinations for cast iron and steel brake discs, while taking into consideration customer technical specifications.
Optimised block wheel friction combinations
FERODO also offers optimised block wheel friction combinations. A wide range of asbestos-free organic L, LL blocks for direct cast iron replacement are available. K-blocks, which are suitable for train, metro, locomotive and freight applications are available in many different shapes.
