The bi-metalic clutch can be ok, as long as you do not "Burn it"...

They will hold a load, but once Burned, they become wickedly Grabby..

An "Organic" friction plate will do a very good job, if it has plenty Spring pressure in the Pressure-Plate...

Having driven Coast-to-Coast over 2 Million miles..I have seen and experienced good and bad clutches..
The "Feramic" clutches seemed to be OK until a driver would over-heat the Feramic clutch.
They will "hold" good power even after they have bee Burnt..But, they get real grabby..
Would about toss a driver right out the Window..!

Is there a difference between Organic and Feramic clutches ? Or are they the same thing as fiber clutches ? I only used fiber in past.

You have about the same variety to choose from as you will find in Brake Linings
Yes...organic uses natural materials and will last a very long time.. Ceramic Feramic "Bi-Metal" i would assume are all about the same...: the friction pads are a composite, made of Scintered Iron and Ceramic..
The Ceramic may be used more in very large equipment, such as pulling tractors or Racing.
Not the best choice for a Team-driven Semi..
