In Germany a fleet puts 10,000 tons of dry powder every year. Specialists call a material that distinguishes between wear and braking covers.
The German company MANN + HUMMEL has solved a problem that has developed a new type of directly mounted braking discs. Volkswagen is already testing the development, which must be installed in the series for two years.
The device weighs about 500 grams and catches up to 80% of the brake pads. The new filter definitely does not suspect the engineers that develop while increasing the weight of each wheel. In the opinion of experts, however, the introduction of these technologies is indispensable, as braking causes lung and heart disease.
