Metal chips & fibres
Since 1985 we are world leader manufacturers of all type of metal chips with OE quality for the global friction industry
Our innovative products includes Cu-free alterantives, like ecoCast

We have mastered the art of offering hassle-free recycled products and lead-free alternatives. The combination of a deep knowledge on metallurgy and the industry needs, has made RIMSA’s products a standard on the industry

 

Metallic fibres aid in the formation of load carrying plateaus which contributes to the formation of a transfer layer

 

Their heat conductivity provides also heat dissipation capacity, contributing to the tribochemistry in the PAD/rotor interface. They contribute to the stabilization of the coefficient of friction and reducing wear. Copper, brass and bronze are common additives used to improve wet friction and recovery.

However, recycled chips and swarfs contain a significative lead content, and lead restrictions got stricter along last years on industry. Engineered products like ecoChip and ecoBronze are their seamless replacement to lead-containing brass chips, with OE quality

 

With the copper-free trend, life extension of the counterparts with higher safety requirements has become a prevailing challenge for the Heavy Duty industry, specially with copper-free formulations. Engineered ecoCast grades (Cu-free cast iron chips) contains self-lubricating phases that provides excellent noise and vibration damping properties and can replace brass
