90th Years

Frenos Sauleda are celebrating their 90th year producing friction material with an animated poster. This represents the wide range of differents fields where it's products are present.



To be able to deliver a more complete service for our clients, we have aquired a dynamometer machine, which allows us to carry out (Kraus, ATE and Inertial Tests) and personalise tests required by our clients on friction material .

This lets us simulate in our laboratory the real conditions to work and to compare results with our costumers. We simulate velocity from 0.1 to 30 m/s, presure of 1 to 200 bars and temperatures of up to 600ºC .

New facilities

Thanks to the growth in our company over the last few years, we have acquired new warehouse space at our factory in Sant Cebrià de Vallalta and at a short distance from our actual factory.

We are hoping to better production, as now having more storage space. Also we hope to improve efficiency in managing our stocks. Our total warehouse space stands presently at around 5000 m2.

Also we acquired two CNC machines, that help to produce more accurate parts.


Welcome to Frenos Sauleda, S.A.

In the year 1927, the Sauleda family was pioneer in the production of brake belts for the automation industry. Since then this innovative spirit has never ceased.

Over time, the company has well adapted to the highest demands for the market and has been an international reference in the world of friction materials.

It is our pleasure to be your partner in the projects of friction materials for industrial brakes, clutches and in the future challenges that the industry may bring.
