Clutch lining material is similar to brake pad lining material, and just like when using the brakes, you wear off some of the lining each time you slip the clutch. I consider both of these materials to be slow use consumables when operating the car. The secret to long clutch life is to minimize the amount you slip the clutch, the same as you get long brake life by minimizing the amount you use the brakes. When coasting or idling at a stop, I will usually keep the clutch pedal pressed down unless the coast or light is over a minute and then I will release the clutch pedal with the gears in neutral.
