INTELLIGENT DESIGN. Down to the last detail

Utilising cutting-edge brake technology, Textar brakes are precision engineered to offer maximum safety, performance and comfort. This uncompromising approach has been the very ethos of Textar for more than 100 years. And it’s the reason why Textar remains a trusted partner to the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers today.

The optimum braking result can only be achieved with brake discs precisely tailored to the brake pad. It is this philosophy that has also made us experts in terms of the right “friction partner” for our brake pads. The Textar brake disc range is manufactured in strict accordance to O.E. tolerances and meets the ECE R90-requirements.

TMD Friction has also supported the development of ceramic brake discs and developed brake pads that perfectly cater for this application. This is why TMD Friction is still the preferred supplier for high-performance vehicles equipped with this technology today.

The Textar brake disc range comprises over 1.650 references for the passenger vehicle sector and covers virtually 100% of the European motor vehicle parc.

TWO ELEMENTS. ONE UNIT. Brake discs with wheel bearing

Discs with an integrated wheel bearing is particularly popular with French automotive manufacturers.

Benefits:

  • Anti-corrosion coating *
  • Time-saving assembly
  • No need to replace the bearing
  • Avoids faulty assembly when pressing in the bearing
  • Nut and dust cap included

ALL THREE MADE EASY. Brake discs with wheel bearing and ABS sensor ring

This type of disc is available for ABS sensor systems with a gear or magnetic ring.

Benefits:

  • Anti-corrosion coating *
  • Time-saving assembly
  • No need to replace the bearing
  • Avoids faulty assembly when pressing in the bearing
  • Nut and dust cap included

A BETTER AESTHETIC. PRO. Coated brake discs

To prevent oxidation with oxygen and therefore maintain the highest level of braking performance and the visual appearance of the brake disc, Textar has improved the PRO series products using a special coating process.

Benefits:

  • Improved visual appearance of the brake discs, e.g. when used with alloy wheels
  • Corrosion protection
  • Maximum braking comfort thanks to the effective selection of materials
  • Reduced assembly time: No removal of protective oil necessary

MORE KNOW HOW. PRO+. Coated brake discs, high carbon

Characteristics of High Carbon:

  • Increased strength thanks to the greater proportion of carbon in the product
  • Optimised brake reaction: Brake judder is minimised due to reduced disc distortion
  • More even heat distribution due to better thermal conductivity
  • Higher thermal load capacity

Benefits:

  • Reduction in braking noise (less susceptible to screeching)
  • Corrosion protection
  • Improved visual appearance of the brake discs, e.g. when used with alloy wheels
  • Reduced assembly time: No removal of protective oil necessary
  • Time saving thanks to assembly aid, in future fixing screws included

CAST IRON MEETS ALUMINIUM. Two-piece composite brake discs

The two-piece Textar brake discs are another innovative product in the Light Technology range of TMD Friction. Each consist of a top hat and a friction ring, which are connected by means of rivets.

Benefits:

  • Optimisation of the driving properties by a reduction of the unsprung mass
  • Lowering of the fuel consumption and thus verifiable CO2 savings
  • Improved thermal conductivity leads to reduced thermal distortion and thus to minimised brake judder
  • Greater resistance to loading thanks to an optimisation of the brake dynamics
  • Improved visual appearance of the brake discs, e.g. when used with alloy wheels
  • Corrosion protection
  • Reduction in braking noise (less susceptive to screeching)
  • Time saving thanks to assembly aid, fixing screws in most cases included

SAFETY ASSURED. ECE R90 for brake discs and-drums

A further stage of the ECE R90 regulation is due to come into force from 1 November 2016. This sets out quality and performance criteria for brake discs and brake drums in the aftermarket. TMD Friction supports this decision. Although this regulation affects only products for passenger cars released to the market from 1 November onwards, we are also testing our existing product range.

These tests have been run for some time and are supervised by the TÜV (Technical Supervision Authority). Some of these tests are conducted on our own dynamometers.
