Title: Friction unit

Abstract: The friction unit, in particular brake disc, has at least one friction face, with a friction element and with at least one molded unit, the friction element being made from carbon fiber-reinforced composite material and joined permanently to the molded unit. The friction unit is characterized in that the (minimum of one) molded unit (6, 13, 23, 23') is joined to the friction element (5) in such a way that at least part of it forms a region of the friction surface (7) and the molded unit (6, 13, 23, 23') has a higher thermal conductivity along the perpendiculars to the surfaces than the friction surface (7) itself.
