Terra Dura™ – 100% Sealed Dry Disc Brakes; Helping to Create a Sustainable Braking Future

Name: Mr Anthony Van Litsenborgh

Presentation Title: Terra Dura™ – 100% Sealed Dry Disc Brakes; Helping to Create a Sustainable Braking Future (EB2020-IBC-015)

Session: Poster Session, Monday 17th May 2021, 17:30 - 19:30 (Central European Summer Time - CEST)

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

As far as I am aware we are one of the few companies specialising in sealed dry disk brake solutions. In my opinion this is an area of braking technology that is somewhat unexplored.

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

Question: Can you really enclose and seal disc brakes without them over heating?

Answer: Yes we have successfully been doing it for more than three years.

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

Hopefully everyone!

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

I am most interested in seeing what innovate directions others have exploded when attempting to solve the problem around braking emissions.
