Hybrid materials collected from organic and inorganic sources, which are traditionally used as brake lining mate- rials, generally include fly ash, cashew shell powder, phenolic resins, aluminium wool, barites, lime powder, car- bon powder and copper powder. The present research focuses on the specific effects produced by fly ash and aims to provide useful indications for the replacement of asbestos due to the health hazards caused by the related fibers. Furthermore, the financial implications related to the use of large-volume use of fly ash, lime stone and cashew shell powder, readily available in most countries in the world, are also discussed. It is shown that many manu- facturing and automotive industries, which are currently experiencing difficulties in meeting the increasing demand for brake lining material, may take advantage from the proposed solution.
