Making a meaningful difference.
Can innovation set the standard for sustainability? We’re driving down harmful emissions in pursuit of better, cleaner braking. We’ve taken action to reduce emissions, cut waste and recycle abrasive material from production. And we’re helping to set the course for a sustainable production cycle with stringent testing and standards development. That’s what we do in the pursuit of excellence.
CO2 emissions reduced by 33% in 2020/2021
50% waste reduction in 2022
Tested to exceed ECE-R90
Our engineers are on the Euro 7 norm development team
95% of Textar friction formulations are copper-free
We were first to supply copper-free high-performance friction material to the OE
TMD Friction developed the industry-standard ECO table
Locations in Europe, USA, Brazil, Mexico, China, Japan
Interview with a Friction Expert: Clément de Valon
“Brake pads are important for the safety of all road users and will still be a factor for car drivers in 2030 and 2040.”
Interview with a Friction Expert: Marco Loth
“In the future workshops will no longer replace a brake pad because it is worn down to a millimetre, but because of corrosion.”
