Brake lining meaning

Brake lining definition

A heat-resistant friction material (usually asbestos ) that is attached to the brake shoe . When the shoe is pressed against the brake drum , the lining grabs the inside of the drum, which stops the car and also prevents the drum and the shoe from wearing each other away. Also see bonded brake lining .
