... brings things to a halt - but safely
There is hardly any way around it
In the field of brake technology, there is hardly any way around TMD Friction and its premium brand Textar. As an original equipment manufacturer for commercial vehicles, trucks, buses, trailers and passenger cars, the company has - to put it modestly - made a name for itself: 70 percent of all commercial vehicles equipped with drum brake linings in Europe use Textar brakes. TMD Friction, the parent company, has also been active in the aftermarket since 1878 - and if we have our way, it can happily go on like this for another hundred years. Fortunately, TMD sees it the same way: The company wants to actively contribute to the changes in future mobility with its solutions for the vehicles of tomorrow.

Our Textar/TMD product highlight
... the brake pad set Textar 8201
As a representative of the modern high-performance brake pads from Textar, we would like to present to you the Textar 8201 brake pad set.
Like all Textar brake pads, the Textar 8201 is perfectly matched to the vehicle and brake system. What is particularly interesting here is that Textar brake pads consist of up to 43 raw materials, which are combined in an in-house development laboratory to create a highly complex brake pad formula.
Textar provides its brake pads with a special, lacquer-like coating on the friction surface, depending on the application. This friction surface coating serves several purposes at once: It increases the initial coefficient of friction until the operating value is reached, improves the cleaning effect on corrosion-protected or used brake discs, reduces the tendency to lubricate when new brake pads are immediately subjected to thermal stress, and provides complete corrosion protection of the friction surface even during prolonged storage. In short, these brake pads bring your commercial vehicle to a stop - and for sure.
