Extreme operational demands often occur in drive and lifting technology as well as mechanical engineering. This is why the best materials are needed. STS4590 has a high coefficient of friction and is thus suitable for use in disc brake linings, for example in crane brakes and rotor brakes in wind turbines. It can also be used in the field of sintered friction linings.
