Emcor® 66 friction modifier is a finely ground attapulgite which exhibits excellent reinforcing properties. Emcor® 66 is primarily used as an additive to a variety of friction compounds. Its ultra-short fiber contributes strength and toughness due to many overlapping and interconnected particles. This increases the reinforcing and frictional benefits of a performance friction surface, such as automotive and motorcycle brake pads, transmission clutch surfaces, railroad brake pads and shoes, and other similar products. Because of the unique nature of the short attapulgite fibers, Emcor® 66 has succesfully replaced asbestos fiber in some applications, while reducing environmental and safety concerns.
