Material with excellent heat and abraision resistance
Pursuit of functionality
Our subsidiary Toho Material Co., Ltd. manufactures potassium 6-titanate in various forms as its main product to be added to brake pads and other friction materials.
We also manufacture other titanates such as sodium 6-titanate and other high-performance products made by improving such titanates for specific applications and purposes of use.
These products are known as the TOFIX series and are used by many customers.
The chemical composition of TOFIX series is K2O・6TiO2, which has the highest heat resistance among potassium titanates.
High braking performance
TOFIX series has excellent abrasion resistance and stability of μ (coefficient of friction). TOFIX-SNR, in particular, is characterized by both high abrasion resistance and a high coefficient of friction.
While the general production process for potassium titanate is a wet process, we use a completely dry process to achieve a consecutive process for the TOFIX series.
Environmentally friendly process
The TOFIX series is a completely dry process that generates no waste or effluent.
