WE GO TO THE LIMIT.
SO THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO.
Brake pads are exposed to extreme conditions and loads, none more so than those fitted to commercial vehicles. A secure bonding of the friction material to the backing plate is therefore imperative. Depending on the application and thermal load, TMD Friction uses a range of different mechanical processes on its commercial vehicle brake pads to provide the strength that each application demands:
- steel plate with brass pins (TMD patent)
- cast plate with brass pins (TMD patent)
- cast plate with cast-on pins (integral cast plate)
- steel plate with weld mesh
- Lightweight plate with pins (patented by TMD)
The benefits: Even with the most extreme thermal loads, our processes
guarantee permanent bonding of the friction material to the backing plate. In other words: optimum safety and comfort.

Lighter vehicle components help to reduce vehicle weight – which in turn leads to fuel savings and lower CO2 emissions. TMD Friction is the trailblazer in this sector and Textar brake pads manufactured with the new lightweight backing plate from TMD Friction’s Lightweight Technology Program are lighter than conventional commercial vehicle brake pads whithout compromising safety. The advantage for fleet operators: Textar’s lightweight brake pads utilize the same geometry as standard brake pads, so they’re a direct replacement fit. Making this simple change to lightweight brake pads can contribute to an overall reduction in vehicle weight and an improvement in fuel consumption that can realise noticeable fuel savings over the service life of a commercial vehicle.
