With nearly 20 years experience in the development and manufacture of superior brake pad friction material technologies for light rail passenger transportation applications, Carlisle is proud to maintain a successful track record throughout the industry.
Manufactured in two unique friction material formulations, Carlisle light rail brake pad compounds are designed to perform in both normal and high temperature applications. Each material is composed of a semi-metallic base, and have been thoroughly tested with excellent results. Both materials are offered in two pad configurations, both with – or without – grooves, and in a variety of popular thicknesses.
G180 is a high friction, molded lining material suitable for use in a wide range of speeds, contact pressures and temperatures. G180 was designed to provide reliable stopping power in low pressure to high energy light rail Transit applications.
SMD2 is a medium friction, molded lining material designed for use in low to medium duty light rail transit applications. Due to its lower nominal friction level, Carlisle’s SMD2 exhibits lower wear rates and noise-free braking characteristics.
