Magnetite (Fe3O4) is one of the friction materials used in new product formulations of braking and clutch systems in vehicles. It is used as an abrasive friction modifier. Acting as an abrasive helps the initial bite in stopping as well as cleaning the mating surfaces. It also acts as a heat sink for friction materials such as brake shoes. Industries in which the use of friction materials are prevalent include aircraft/aerospace, automotive, construction, mining, agriculture industries where they range from small to massive braking applications. As an environmentally friendly mineral, Reiss Viking magnetite has been well received by the friction industry.
