From liquid rubber to the bicycle: The manufacturing process of a bicycle brake pad.
Our rubber compounds are the foundation for our line of brake pads. Mixtures are developed by highly qualified technicians in a fully equipped laboratory. Before going into production compounds are tested for performance and durability using the most modern test equipment. This process of product development allows SwissStop to produce brake pads with very specific, high performance characteristics. Our modern laboratory is available to other firms wishing to test all types of elastic materials (thermoplastics and rubber).
Production machines are set up using the latest 2 and 3 dimensional CAD software. A direct connection to the production department or to the tool manufacturer allows us to operate quickly and precisely. Prototypes are produced in the shortest possible time.
