has this ever been tried before? based on my limited knowledge of plastics and polymers, it seems like it might have improved braking and wear when compared to regular ol' rubber. i'm thinking a skateboard wheel, when made of rubber, wears very quickly, is very "gummy," and doesn't hold traction as well as a urethane wheel...so, why not try something like that on a bike brake?

Works well on my Inline Skates for Skids and 'T'-Stops.
Durometer may be too high, and wind up 'sanding' the rims.
