TEXTAR brake discs – worldwide guarantee for optimal safety
Modern cars are generally equipped with disc brakes. Mounted on the brake caliper piston, brake pads press against the brake disc as a result of a braking action, causing the car to lose speed and ultimately halt. The brake disc is one of the most safety-relevant components in a car and permanently exposed to high strain. It is subject to natural wear and should therefore be regularly checked and if necessary replaced. Never economise on the impending replacement of a brake disc. Furthermore, first class OEM-quality material is to be preferred.
Leading in development and ongoing optimisation
The TMD group sells brake discs and brake pads worldwide under the TEXTAR brand and with 14 locations in nine countries counts as a leading manufacturer. The enterprise with main seat in Leverkusen in Germany, was repeatedly awarded as best employer, employing over 5000 people. Active in brake system production for more than 100 years, TEXTAR enables optimal brake performance for most current car models, even meeting the highest standards of racing. To this end, the company decisively supervised the development and ongoing optimisation of modern ceramic brake discs.
High quality standard according to ECE R90 norm, guarded by TÜV
Brake discs with an integrated wheel bearing and discs with gear ring or magnetic ring for the ABS sensors, brake discs with a protective layer against corrosion and silent brake discs, partly made of carbon for an improved heat distribution and appearance: all of these are produced by TEXTAR as well as the two-piece aluminium brake disc with friction ring of grey cast steel, connected by rivets for the sake of an improved driving quality and lower fuel consumption. In order to guarantee a specific quality standard and thus improve traffic safety, all these parts are required to meet the so-called ECE R90 norm since November 2016. These specifications demand the highest standards from the manufacturer. TEXTAR has subjected its entire product range to all necessary testing under supervision of the German technical authority TÜV.
TEXTAR brake discs: guaranteed safety
The quality standard according to ECE R90 norm does is not maintained in all countries. This should keep no car owner from choosing OEM quality products. TEXTAR exclusively supplies these quality components, particularly indispensable in the highly-strained braking system of a family car. Yet, TEXTAR products are not really expensive. The price of a brake disc varies according to car model and garage.
