Detail is everything.
In the pursuit of precision, there’s no such thing as ‘one size fits all’. That’s why every Textar friction product is developed for a specific vehicle, brake system, and purpose. Our experts redefine quality standards, to deliver exactly the right braking for every challenge. In the last 3 decades we have developed 50,000 friction formulations and our experts have evaluated 797 ingredients to achieve best-in-class performance for any vehicle – because that’s what friction experts do.
2,000 hours dyno-testing and 300,000km road testing
Tested to exceed the ECE-R90 requirement
38,000 hours of on-road testing per year
We collect 11 terabytes of data through extensive testing each year
We’ve developed 50,000 friction formulations in the last 3 decades
Each friction formulation contains up to 43 raw materials
We’ve worked with almost 800 different raw materials
Each product is designed for specific brake systems in specific vehicles
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.”
