To ensure that we maintain our standards as per the ISO9001:2015 procedures, we adopt quality assurance techniques throughout the production process.
Kapablock houses its own testing equipment that is used to ensure all batches match consistently to our quality standards.
Rigorous testing is involved of our own and our competitors' products.
Component parts and batches are tested in our laboratory.
Test Rig Side Angle
We have built our own test rig to match actual braking conditions. The test rig assist us to measure stopping times, assess heat build up and determine wearing and weight loss of the lining. We can also check on bonding strength and basic ease of fitment of a lining.
 We have tested against major brands and Kapabrake shows great performance!
Sheer-Testing
We conduct sheer strength tests on our bonded lining.
We conduct burn out tests on the lining to determine consistency of resin application. We are also able to check for flexibility of the lining after it has been subjected to extreme heat conditions.
Furnace
Tensile-strength-measurement
All yarns are subjected to a variety of quality checks including tensile strength testing.
Microscope inspection
We inspect the lining after testing to assess for any weak spots.
