As industry-recognised global braking specialists, we produce over 12 million brake discs every year for vehicle manufacturers and the independent aftermarket. TRW True Originals are just that: originals that are never just a copy of an existing model. We design and build everything from the ground up to meet the real world challenges your customers face, and because we never stop researching and developing new safety and performance features, you’ll always have access to the latest developments in braking technology to pass on to your customers.
Did you know that we pack all our brake disks in VCI (volatile corrosion inhibitor) paper rather than coating them in oil or rust preventative? You just take them out of the box and get to work – no need to waste time cleaning it off before fitting.
To provide increased corrosion resistance and performance, our product developers devised a new industry concept: black painted brake discs. By coating parts of the disc in our specially formulated black paint, we create a unique surface that acts as a protective barrier against corrosion.
When we manufacture TRW True Originals, we control every detail of every part. Because we’re committed to producing the safest and highest quality brake discs, we use a carefully controlled mixture of raw materials to produce the finest grey cast iron. Undertaking the process ourselves means that we can be sure of the best possible casting for the best performance quality.
All our castings are made to tight tolerances using top-quality EN-GJL-150 or EN-GJL-200 cast iron material.
Castings are subject to stringent safety tests and controls before being released for machining. These close tolerances provide hassle-free fitting for you, and comfortable performance for your customer.
The TRW True Originals range includes brake discs with integrated bearings, ABS sensor rings and fixing accessories (no more looking for a replacement screw when one gets damaged). Using old, worn or damaged bearings increases the risk of disc damage, so TRW True Originals brake discs are available ready-assembled with mounted wheel bearings. We also provide toothed and magnetic ABS sensor rings.
