Brake master cylinders with the seal of quality

All TRW Aftermarket Brake Master Cylinders are fitted with original equipment specification rubber seals and dust caps, which means they are far more resistant to ageing.

Our aftermarket range of brake master cylinders now incorporates the latest advances developed for original equipment, including fixed seals. Put this together with our extended range of aluminium wheel cylinders, which deliver reduced vehicle weight as well as extended part lifetime – plus our extended guarantee for 3 years or 60,000 mile (100,000 km) – and our brake master cylinder range has the seal of quality in more ways than one.


Added safety for your customer

So how important is the quality of a brake master cylinder? The simple answer is vitally important. The ‘invisible’, safety critical parts of the braking system, hidden under a drum or inside the car, are often not given the same degree of consideration as brake discs and pads. But if drum brake and actuation system components such as brake master cylinders, brake hoses or brake fluid are not working properly it can contribute to a serious reduction in braking performance. Checking these parts regularly and fitting good quality, OE matching aftermarket products when necessary is essential. That’s why the premium quality and wide coverage of our TRW Aftermarket range of brake master cylinders enables garages, installers and end users alike to maximise safety for almost any vehicle.
