Improves mechanical and thermal strength, stabilizes wear and friction
- The titanates have outstanding properties such as high mechanical strength, thermal and chemical stability and wear resistance. For these qualities, they are widely used as reinforcing agents in plastics and composite materials for technological applications.
- In friction materials, titanates help to stabilize the coefficient of friction, reduce wear, give mechanical and thermal resistance. Furthermore, the potassium titanate acts in synergy with the fibrillated organic fibers favoring the stability and the resistance to the temperature of the tribo-film.
