IN THE PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE

BRAKING EXCELLENCE IN ANY DRIVING CONDITION

Every year, Textar invests more in braking expertise, innovation, testing, and quality. Aiming higher and acting responsibly globally to create environmentally friendly braking solutions and a more sustainable industry. Driving harder to raise the bar on performance and reliability for customers. Thinking bigger, and partnering with leading vehicle manufacturers, to develop the best braking solutions for the mobility of the future.

Doing everything possible in the pursuit of excellence. That’s what friction experts do.

IN THE PURSUIT OF eMISSION CONTROL

By optimizing our processes, we cut waste by 50% and recycled over 4,000 tonnes of abrasive material in 2022. We are committed to making our friction formulations free from any hazardous materials. And we are taking action to reduce CO2 emissions across our whole supply chain. Just three steps in our pursuit of better, cleaner braking. That’s what friction experts do.

Textar is continually refining brake technology in the pursuit of excellence.

Worldwide availability and compliance with maximum environmental and regulatory standards

  • 95% of Textar friction formulations are copper and antimony free

  • CO2 emissions reduced by 33% in 2020->2021
  • 50% waste reduction in 2022

  • 4,000 tons of abrasive material from production recycled in 2022

  • Every friction product is tested to exceed ECE-R90 requirement

  • We were the first to supply a copper free high performance friction material to the OE

  • Our engineers are part of the new EURO7 norm development team

  • TMD Friction developed the ECO table, an industry standard today

  • Locations in Europe, USA, Brazil, Mexico, China, Japan

IN THE PURSUIT OF SILENCE

The modern driving experience demands quieter braking – particularly for electric vehicles. Textar has a dedicated ‘Noise Vibration Harshness’ team, working with specially developed analytical and simulation tools in relentless pursuit of the ultimate braking comfort. Without compromise. That’s what friction experts do.
