Know your brake pads
The European aftermarket has dozens and dozens of brake pad brands, ranging from premium to low cost. When you buy this safety critical component, how can you be sure that the price you pay is for a product that justifies it, not just a brand and marketing?
Textar brake pads are manufactured by TMD Friction, one of the world’s biggest manufacturers of brake friction, with over one million individual pieces rolling off their production lines every single day.
The success of TMD Friction is built on technical excellence, innovation and expertise in materials science. The company has a history of bringing new technology and ideas to the market, and has been responsible for many of the major advances in braking over the past 100 years, including carbon ceramic disc brakes in 2000, and continues to lead the way with technologies like regenerative braking and KERS.
Working closely with many of the biggest automotive brands, TMD are supplying brakes to cars from Opel Corsa, to Mercedes C-Class, to the new Porsche Panamera and even the Bugatti Veyron.
TMD Friction is developing braking solutions to meet the environmental and performance challenges of tomorrow; as original equipment engineered for a new era of super-efficient passenger cars, for the vehicle aftermarket through trusted brand names like Textar and Mintex.
