QUALITY FRICTION PRODUCTS. FOR QUALITY MARQUES.
THE FUTURE OF BRAKING.
Others may meet current needs, but with always one eye on the future, Textar continues to break new ground. That’s why Textar brake pads are fitted in future-oriented vehicles. Both the S model and the new X model of the high-tech TESLA Motors are brought to a safe stop with Textar. The new BMW models i3 and i8 are also equipped with Textar brake pads as standard. In this perfect partnership, the first of a new generation of vehicles meets the No.1 in brake technology. We are also one step ahead in terms of environmental sustainability. A large proportion of Textar brake pads have been copper-free for several years, well ahead of any legislative demands. And at TMD Friction we also played a major role in the development of the ECO classification standards for friction materials. Now, the TMD Friction Lightweight Technology program is focused on the development of lightweight, and consequently more environmentally-friendly friction. With this technology TMD Friction is paving the way for a new generation of aftermarket products. While others follow standards – we set them. This is “premium” taken to the next level…
NEVER THE CHEAPEST.
ALWAYS THE BEST.
While other manufacturers focus mainly on price, with Textar the focus is always on premium quality. At TMD Friction we spend up to three years developing, testing and releasing each new O.E. product. The knowledge gained from the development of the original equipment part is transferred across to our aftermarket program. So with Textar, you can be sure you’re getting the best.
