Alumina-coated Brake Discs with Intent to Reduce Non-exhaust Emission & Increase EV Ride Comfort

Name: Prof. Dr. Xueyuan Nie

Presentation Title: Alumina-coated Brake Discs with Intention for Reduced Non-exhaust Emission and Increased Ride Comfort of Electrical Vehicles (EB2021-MDS-002)

Session: Advances in Rotor Technology, Friday 21st May 2021, 12:00 - 13:40 (Central European Summer Time - CEST)

What do you find most interesting about the topic of your presentation?

A cost-effective alumina coating on cast iron brake discs promising for reducing brake particular emission and corrosion, prolonging lifespan of discs without degrading the tribological performance and driving comfort.

When discussing this topic with industry peers, what question are you most frequently asked? How do you answer it?

Q: Can the PEA coating survive under high temperature during brake events?

A: According to the brake dynamometer tests, the PEA alumina-coating can survive up to 1100 °F .

Who do you think will be most interested in your presentation, and who would you most like to ask questions about it?

The people who are studying in reducing corrosion and brake emission and searching for low effective coating technology for EV with ADAS will be most interested in seeing our presentation.

What specific topics or technology are you hoping to see in other presentations or in the exhibition?

We are hoping to see technology and policy development which make NEE reduction possible and implemented for benefits of health, environment, and sustainability.
