Title: REMOVAL OF GLAZE FROM VEHICLE BRAKES
Abstract:
The performance of a brake within a vehicle's braking system is maintained within a safe operating range by a glaze removal procedure which uses abrasion to convert glaze into particulates which can be removed from the working surfaces of said brake by gravity or by airflow. The abrasion is generated by the instantaneous application of high brake-line pressure when the wheel containing said brake is mounted on a roller brake tester and the glaze is at a temperature below its softening point. A controller may be used to output instructions for the glaze removal process, to monitor the process and to log brake performance.
