Emergency Brake Test performed at Technische Universität Berlin on KUMA Sintered Brake Pads. View video.
Under high temperature condition during emergency braking, it was found that the B.B.Group KUMA brake had a 12% dynamic friction factor change while other brake pads gave dynamic friction twice that value. This means the brake load on the rotor disc is subjected to braking loads less than existing brake pad during emergency braking.
