Abstract:

The study consisted of a comparison of Sintered Iron Pistons versus Aluminum Pistons in hydraulic brake cylinders under conditions encountered in packaging, standby storage, stroking tests and vehicle operation. While corrosion, staining and gumming are experienced with Aluminum Pistons, corrosion and staining are eliminated and gumming greatly reduced by Sintered Iron Pistons. Operational characteristics are improved with Sintered Iron Pistons as evidenced by reduced metal wear and almost total elimination of sediment in the Hydraulic Brake Fluid.
