Skryté nebezpečí otěrových částic
Klíčová slova:brzdné destičky, frikční materiály, otěrové částice, analýzy
Intensifying the mobility and the increase of the number of vehicles give rise to a larger amount of particles released by the brake abrasion. The particles, containing various elements and substances hazardous for some organisms, get subsequently into the air and the environment along busy roads. The aim of this review article is to provide information on both the composition of friction composites and transport-related emissions. The article is focused mainly on the wear particles released from brakes, but also on methods used to identify the source of the polluting particles are discussed.
