“Our first priority at TRW will always be safety; our premium friction line represents just that with its intelligent OE-design, fit and performance,” explained Mark Thorpe, sales and marketing director, TRW North American Automotive Aftermarket. “We pride ourselves on being first-to-market, and work diligently to provide solutions for the complex demands of the auto care industry.”

TRW has used its engineering expertise as a leading OE brake systems manufacturer to ensure the brake pad program offers the most suitable friction formulation for each vehicle application to optimize safety and performance. Where appropriate, TRW includes installation hardware in the box, facilitating optimal installation and on the road performance, said the company.

TRW’s friction material is made from a formulized mix of ingredients to facilitate a stable friction coefficient and optimized braking performance in hot or cold temperatures, at high or low speeds and under difficult or challenging conditions, proven over millions of miles of real-world driving. Providing a dominant offering of chamfered, slotted and shimmed designs, the range comprises ceramic and semi-metallic brake pad sets to support the proven OE formulations for optimal performance. For a quieter and more comfortable drive, TRW’s brake pads are fitted with premium shims which act as a damper between the friction material and the brake caliper.
