Abstract

A brake element 1, such as a brake pad for engagement with the flat surface of a disc or like moving element of a brake system, has a lining comprising a relatively soft layer 4 of elastomeric material and a relatively hard layer 3 of friction material and a backing plate 2 to which the lining is secured. The elastomeric layer is preferably not less than 3mm in thickness, and the thicknesses of the layers 4 and 3 are preferably in a ratio which is not less than 1:10. Hot-spotting and thermal damage to the moving element are thus reduced, and so is wear of the lining itself.
