BRAKING WITHOUT COMPROMISE.
Utilising cutting-edge brake technology, Textar brakes are precision engineered to offer maximum safety, performance and comfort. This uncompromising approach has been the very ethos of Textar for more than 100 years. And it’s the reason why Textar remains a trusted partner to the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers today.
Textar Q+: New dampening shim for the aftermarket
Leading vehicle manufacturers worldwide put their trust in Textar brake pads and TMD Friction’s premium brand also offers this same OEM quality for the spare parts market. Textar’s latest product for the aftermarket is a series of OE-quality brake pads with a new, optimised dampening shim. The Q+ provides numerous benefits including improved acoustic damping and improved aesthetics.
“It minimises irritating squeaking during braking, and also provides greater driver comfort and safety. The surface of Q+ dampening shims is finished with a textile structure and an embossed Q+ logo.
Brake noise is an important issue when it comes to peace-of-mind and safety for drivers. It can even be dangerous if the noise distracts or confuses the driver. Therefore, in close collaboration with leading vehicle manufacturers, TMD Friction develops and tests brake pads on the premises of “optimum braking performance” and “minimal brake noise” – and it often takes several years before a new product is ready for the market.
‘The surface structure and composition of the new Q+ dampening shims work with dry friction to inhibit vibrations that can lead to squeaking’, said Vincenzo Di Caro, development engineer at TMD Friction.
‘By carrying out a wide range of tests based on OE criteria, both on-vehicle and on dynanometers, we were able to achieve and confirm the optimisation of these dampening shims. TMD Friction has the advantage of being a shareholder in our shim supplier, so we have a significant influence on how new shims are developed’, Di Caro added.
In addition to this technical development, all Textar brake pads for passenger cars and commercial vehicles will feature yellow marking and Textar logo to strengthen brand identity.
