  Brake lining - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Brake linings are composed of a relatively soft but tough and heat-resistant material with a high coefficient of dynamic friction (and ideally an identical coefficient of static friction) typically mounted to a solid metal backing using high-temperature adhesives or rivets.
In this view of an automobile disc brake, the brake pad is the fl material held by the red metal component (the brake caliper).
Since the lining is the portion of the braking system which converts the vehicle's kinetic energy into heat, the lining must be capable of surviving high temperatures without excessive wear (leading to frequent replacement) or outgassing (which causes brake fade, a decrease in the stopping power of the brake).

 Disk brake lining with protective lip - Patent 6932199
Set of brake linings as in claim 2, wherein at least one of the brake linings of the set of brake linings incorporates at least one recess which is configured for receiving at least one friction lining protector of the brake lining of the set of brake linings.
The brake lining of claim 1, wherein said brake lining includes a complementary brake lining having an associated friction lining protector, wherein said friction lining protector of one of said brake linings is disposed toward said friction lining protector of the other of said brake linings in staggered arrangement.
This set of brake linings is characterized by the fact that at least one of the brake linings features at least one lip extending beyond the friction surface of the friction lining and overhanging the backing of the brake disk, which is gripped by the brake caliper.

 Hand brake - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The lever is traditionally and more commonly a hand-operated system (hence the hand brake name), the most common configuration being a handle on the floor between the driver and front passenger, and less commonly being a handle bar located on the lower portion of the dashboard somewhere close to the steering wheel column.
A parking brake cable which is unused for a long period of time may rust and seize, so that the brake will not be able to be actuated when it is eventually desired to do so.
Also, in cold climates, a parking brake which is applied when there is some amount of water in the cable housing or in the mechanism may freeze when left for several hours, particularly overnight when temperatures drop, immobilizing the car when it is desired to restart it.

 Resistive ceramic bushings for brake lining wear sensor - Patent 4606434
During brake operation, the pads 15 are squeezed against the opposite faces of the rotor 12 by a hydraulically operated caliper assembly 21.
The ensuing frictional engagement of the rotating rotor 12 and the nonrotating pads 15 causes gradual wear of the brake lining.
When the brake lining is worn to the wear limit, and the contact 36 engages the rotor 12, the comparator 54 is turned "off" while the comparator 52 is "on" so that only the red LED 64 is illuminated.

 Brakepro : Manufacturers of Heavy Duty Brake Friction Material
Selecting the perfect brake lining for a heavy-duty brake application is very important to insure that the vehicle and the load type can be stopped according to the requirements of FMVSS 121 law.
The perfect brake lining will need to have an appropriate coefficient of friction that will remain constant for the life of the vehicle under all operating conditions of speed, braking pressure, vehicle load, temperature, and humidity.
Lining fade is the inability of friction material to maintain its normal effectiveness when it is forced to work at elevated temperatures.

 Brake Tips
The issue of turning brake drums to greater diameters and compensating with oversize lining is a confusing one for mechanics who also work on hydraulic systems.
Brake Chambers: Each of the service chambers must be of the same size across the vehicle's axles and within each axle set.
With everything the same, such as chamber size, brake length, brake lining etc., the shortest push rod stroke will do more braking until it matches the next shortest, etc. This results in faster wear of the brake lining and higher temperatures on the wheel end with the shorter stroke.

There may be a leak in the brake system, air in the brake lines, or the need for a brake adjustment.

 1949 Wayfarer: BRAKE SYSTEM
An occasional adjustment to compensate for normal brake lining wear is the only maintenance required until you have driven many thousands of miles when it becomes necessary to reline the brakes.
BRAKE RELINING - At high mileages when the brake lining is worn beyond safe operating limits, it will be necessary to reline the brake shoes to provide maximum braking area and to avoid damage to brake drums.
Have the level of the brake fluid in the master cylinder checked periodically and whenever brake shoe adjustment is required.

A brake caliper houses the brake pads and the hydraulically operated pistons.
The main components of a disc brake are the brake pads, the caliper, and the rotor.

 Brake actuators
Brake actuators are the devices that convert the compressed air force within a truck or trailer's air reservoir into a mechanical force, which activates the brake.
As brake lining material wears, however, the lining-to-drum clearance increases, which means the push rod has to move a longer distance to rotate the slack adjuster to apply the brakes.
Beyond a certain distance, brakes are deemed to be out of adjustment, which means they can't provide the proper amount of braking force.
