AVERY DENNISON: Brake Shim Adhesive

A new brake shim adhesive can reportedly withstand the high heat and pressure challenges associated with electronic parking brakes (EPBs) while providing damping characteristics. The new adhesive is reportedly the automotive industry’s first brake shim pressure-sensitive adhesive solution engineered specifically to meet electronic parking brake performance challenges. The tape offers best-in-class damping at 100ºC/212ºF, and resists adhesive bleed at temperatures >150ºC/302ºF and pressures at >200 bars.

According to Gulsah Metinoz, global product manager, Avery Dennison Performance Tapes, the new EPB adhesive is engineered to reduce noise, vibration and harshness. “The new Avery Dennison EPB adhesive is the only product that can solve the problem of bonding an EPB shim onto the pad for long-term service and at the same time offer a noise reduction benefit,” she said. “Others can’t do that. Prior to this product introduction, design engineers had to settle for short service life or else compromise on the quality of the sound level.”

Metinoz said that design engineers throughout the supply chain will find the new adhesive of interest. “One auto manufacturer claims that in seven years all models will be equipped with EPB,” she said. “Obtaining a brake shim adhesive solution to meet that demand is the concern of all engineers through the supply chain.”
