TMD Friction, through its Textar brand, has extended its wide range of brake discs for the commercial vehicle (CV) market, introducing an additional ten references for truck, trailer, and bus applications.
As braking is a safety critical product category, Textar recognises that the optimum braking result can only be achieved with brake discs precisely tailored to the brake pad, and therefore, the new products complement its growing range of brake discs, accessories, and wear indicators.
This results in a decrease in downtime as less time is spent repairing pad/disc wear and damage, ultimately providing increased value for money and total cost of ownership. Utilising cutting-edge brake technology, Textar brakes are precision engineered to offer maximum safety, performance and comfort.
The Textar brake disc range is manufactured in strict accordance to OE tolerances and meets the ECE R90- requirements. CV operators can find the products in the revamped online catalogue system Brakebook, which allows customers to create printable catalogues tailored to their individual requirements and in the desired formats.
Alongside the web-based version, the online catalogue is available via a free mobile app, which gives CV operators and distributors an optimised version of Brakebook, available for both iOS and Android. Like its web-based equivalent, the app shows images of brake products, enabling users to easily compare the measurements of a vehicle’s pads or linings to the phone’s reference.
