Brake Discs

TRW Aftermarket

With a continuous research and development programme driving a wide range of remanufactured brake calipers, pads and discs designed for heavy duty vehicles, you can rely on TRW to provide you with CV brake discs that satisfy your customers and help you to build business. We’ll give you exceptional coverage for truck brake discs, pads and calipers. Rely on our 100 years of TRW experience and fit right first time with TRW commercial vehicle brake pads and discs and calipers.

Our truck brake discs and pads give you:

  • Tight tolerances for hassle free fitment and comfortable performance
  • CV Brake discs and pads that meet and beat OE standards


There’s millions of reasons to choose TRW CV brake pads and discs

We supply vehicle manufacturers and the independent aftermarket with more than 12 million brake discs every year, worldwide, so you can put your trust in us when it comes to lorry brakes and pads, both now and in the future. That’s because we invest in innovation, which brings you not just premium quality parts but also the latest developments in brake disc technology, so you can give your customers the best possible service.


High Carbon Discs

Our High Carbon Discs the OE specifications expected by manufacturers; that’s because we design them not just to meet standards but to beat them and be the best real world solution for today’s vehicles. With these discs, you’ll get great stability, improved thermal behaviour and best performance all round.

Demands on the specification of brake discs – from weight to braking performance to NVH (noise vibration harshness) properties.

Here’s why:

  • High Carbon discs have optimal thermal conductivity, which ensures more consistent brake performance by enabling the discs to run cooler
  • High Carbon brake discs are more resistant to distortion, which maintains vehicle performance
  • High Carbon discs give better stability and increased resistance to distortion and thermal cracking because of the improved thermal behaviour
  • High Carbon discs improve the driving experience, too, with a quieter, judder-free performance


Wide coverage and faster fitting

One reason why so many businesses rely on us to achieve a faster fit is because our replacement brake pads and disc brake parts come complete with all the essential accessories and fitting kits required. Our Heavy Duty Line range of brake pads is completed by a set of accessories which, combined with the basic product, make it possible to cover the great majority of variations in each individual market. We offer you market-leading coverage from a refined range. That means you can spend less time searching for parts and more time fitting them, keeping jobs moving through the garage to increase business.


Tighter tolerances on brake discs

We control every detail of every CV brake disc we make, and we never compromise on machining tolerances or raw materials. With tight machining tolerances and premium quality materials, our discs enable easier fitting and improved performance as standard.


Cast iron safety from CV disc brakes

We make the safest and highest quality truck brake discs because we match machining process quality with a finely controlled mixture of raw materials. TRW produces the finest grey cast iron to ensure the best possible mix from the initial casting – and, ultimately, the best end performance quality.

Through exhaustive testing, we ensure:

  • A high carbon content (for a fluidity that enables easier casting and machining, and less shrinkage)
  • A low melting temperature
  • Robust resistance to wear
  • A high thermal capacity
  • Optimised rigidity through high tensile and compressive strength

Stringent testing of castings before we release them for machining, ensuring the highest possible levels of safety.


Machined to perfection

We continue to lead the market with a range that provides excellent vehicle coverage and exceptional part quality through precision machining as well as material strength. Machining takes place on CNC production lines capable of maintaining the correct parallelism and flatness. It is controlled by sophisticated measuring instruments, and disc positioning is ensured by the precise placing of the central hole and radial holes. The observance of strict tolerances is an absolute guarantee for a minimum DTV (Disc Thickness Variation) and also for a comfortable braking manoeuvre free of squealing and judder. That’s yet another reason why TRW Aftermarket CV brake discs are reliable, dependant, everyday components that you can fit with confidence.


TRW brake pads and discs offer all-round safety

No one knows better than we do how components works together to maximize the power of the braking system; that’s because we produce not just discs and brake pads but every type of vehicle safety solution, and understand the best ways to protect the passengers inside every vehicle. Each element is designed and built to be a balanced part of the braking system. That’s why TRW CV brake discs and pads mean an easier fit for you, reliable quality for your customer, and a range of robust products that you can use to build your business with confidence.
