TRW follows industry trends to offer the Perfect Match for heavier, more powerful vehicles

TRW Aftermarket

TRW Aftermarket offers the ‘perfect match’ for heavier, more powerful vehicles in the form of an enhanced programme of high carbon discs, and a bespoke range of brake pads manufactured from innovative friction material designed especially for light commercial and sports utility vehicles (LCV & SUV’s).

The business attributes its success in manufacturing futureproof parts for every class of vehicle to continuous monitoring of industry trends and ability to respond quickly to market demand.

TRW’s Richard Adgey, Global Product Portfolio Manager IAM, explained: “Trends in increased comfort and robustness together with more congestion and a growing desire for speed are driving the popularity of heavier, more powerful vehicles.

“We engineered these programmes to specifically meet the needs of such vehicles, as with a higher output of kinetic energy, they require more braking power.”

Stopping distance is exponentially longer at high speeds. Research shows that each time speed is doubled, the stopping distance quadruples. And vehicle weight further compounds the issue by putting more pressure on its braking system. Consumers want longer lasting parts, but at the same time are more demanding in terms of comfort, speed and fuel efficiency. In line with this, since the 1970s, TRW has doubled the lifespan of its parts and invests heavily in R&D to find innovative solutions to cater for ever faster, heavier and more technologically advanced vehicles.

The high carbon brake disc programme which offers optimal thermal conductivity now totals 125 product references. The use of high carbon in the casting process allows the discs to run cooler, meaning they not only offer superb performance but are less likely to distort and suffer from Noise Vibration and Harshness (NVH) problems such as hot judder and brake squeal.  

The range of brake pads manufactured specifically for LCV’s and SUV’s stands at 51 references. In line with TRW’s safety policy, the pads are coated in Cotec – TRW’s innovative brake pad coating which improves stopping distance for the first stops following a brake pad change. 

Richard Adgey continued: “At TRW, our objective is to provide the safest possible driving experience for everyone. Fitting TRW’s pads and discs together is both the safest way forward for garages and motorists and the most efficient and sensible business option for motor factors.

“By thinking in terms of systems, engineers from across the business work together to integrate our OE knowledge into the aftermarket offer. This results in premium quality braking parts which work in perfect harmony within the system.”

Confidence in the ‘Perfect Match’ is reflected in TRW’s extended three year (or 36,000 mile) warranty against material or production defects when TRW’s brake pads and brake discs are fitted together.
