Pometon S.p.A., headquartered in Maerne, Venice, Italy, will showcase its range of iron-based alloy powders for brake applications at the EuroBrake 2022 event taking place online May 17–19. Organised by Fisita, the event includes over ninety technical presentations, panel discussions and keynote addresses that are impacting and shaping the future of braking technology.

Pometon’s Brakealloy iron-based alloy powders were developed after a multi-year R&D programme in collaboration with brake pad producers and research centres. The range of materials is designed for Cu-free brake pads and shares a common basic concept but different thermomechanical properties. This translates into distinct behaviours during braking action, reportedly enabling more optimised performance and comfort.

The water atomised iron powders are currently available in three compositions. Brakealloy Z is an alloy of iron and zinc, Brakeally S is an alloy of iron and tin and Brakealloy SB is an iron, tin and bismuth (Sn/Bi) alloy. All are suited to both organic and sintered brake applications.
