CERAMIC/ORGANIC PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY
Since SBS do not want to compromise on rider safety, NRS is used for all ceramic/organic friction materials made by SBS today including street, off-road and racing compounds.
Ceramic/organic materials are mainly used for smaller motorcycles and scooters, but was formerly the dominating brake material type.
The ceramic/organic friction material powder is fed into a hot cavity and pressure is applied together with the back plate featuring NRS retention technology. Due to a glue being included in the friction powder, it reacts and creates the friction material. After a certain time in the hot cavity the pad, including the back plate, is ejected and sent to a curing station, where the final curing of the friction material takes place.
SBS only uses coating materials and methods that protects the brake pads optimally against corrosion.
Powder coating with temperature stability up to 200-300°C
