Safety being the cutting edge of these helmets, each one is equipped with MIPS Brain Protection System: a low friction layer separating the shell and the lining devised to reduce rotational motion on angled impact, providing the rider with superior protection.
Due to significantly different material properties of single components, the resulting friction layer established on the surface of friction composites is strongly heterogeneous and also its surface is rough with many asperities across it [1, 2].
Field Logic's secret is found in The Block's patented 'friction layer' design.
Recopac polypropylene products also include robust 244 litre folding box pallets, solid structure pallets and friction layer pads.
In addition, at the initial of the test, the disc and the brake pad are in the running-in period (grinding) and the friction layers in which the friction force is effective are not yet formed (Sugozu, 2016).
