Brake pads are formed by a combination of materials with different contents. Brake pads generally consist of binders, friction modifiers, lubricants and fillers materials. The particle size, chemical and structural properties of the brake pad materials affect the braking performance. In this study, usability of nano borax which is one of boron minerals as brake pad material was investigated. 3%, 6% and 9% nano borax was added to the composition to produce three different pads. The experiments were carried out using a pin-on disc. The tribological and physical characteristics of the pad were investigated. As a result; it is seen that the use of nano borax in brake pad composites has an important and beneficial effect on brake performance.
