The aim of this paper is to develop eco-friendly new natural asbestos free brake pad using bagasse. The use of asbestos natural fibre is being avoided due to its carcinogenic nature that might cause health risks. The bagasse were sieve into sieve grade of 625(micrometre) and three different formulations were prepared with varying resin from 80%, 85% and 90%. The bagasse and resin was used in production of brake pad in ratio of 20% bagasse and 80% resin, 15% bagasse and 85% resin and 10% bagasse and 90% resin using compression moulding. The different properties examined are physical, mechanical and wear rate of the brake pad were studied. The result shown that compressive strength, hardness of the produced samples were seen to be increasing with increased in % resin addition, while the oil and water absorption and wear rate decreased as % resin increased. The all result of this research indicates that bagasse particle can be effectively used as a replacement for asbestos in brake pad manufacture.
