TRW TRUE ORIGINALS BRAKE PADS
Innovative COTEC-coated brake pads enhance braking system safety – from the moment your customers drive away from your workshop.
Stopping distances cut by 7 metres during the bedding in period*
Exceptional coverage for the European vehicle parc
36-month, 31,068-mile (50,000km) Manufacturer Warranty
ECE R90 compliant
Fittings included for quick and easy replacement
State-of-the-art brake pad manufacturing
TRW designs and manufactures entire OE braking systems for vehicle manufacturers and has done for over a century. And because we design, make and test everything ourselves, we can guarantee that all TRW True Originals brake parts meet our own advanced standards for quality, reliability and safety.
We use deep moulding technology to produce a more consistent density and porosity – for your customers this means more comfortable journeys, thanks to reduced judder and noisePowder coating prevents rust from developing on the back plate
TRW’s specialist design helps brake pads to resist heat and high shear strengths
Our friction material is a carefully researched compound of raw materials - from rubber to graphite – that generates the safest brake pad performance across all conditions
Our scorching techniques heat brake pads to 600-700oC to reduce bedding-in time and initial fading
Improved braking safety, right off the ramp
Our unique COTEC coating is applied to all our car and LCV brake pads as standard. It is an advanced silicate coating that we apply to the friction material of replacement brake pads, providing improved contact between the brake pad and disc, even during the bedding-in period (the first few stops following a pad change when the friction co-efficient is lower than usual). So your customers will be getting the best from their front and rear brake pad replacements from the moment they leave your workshop.
In fact, TRW True Originals brake pads stop vehicles up to seven metres quicker than other premium brake pads during the bedding-in period.*
All car brake pads that TRW sells in Europe are COTEC-coated.
Performance and value for you and your customer
TRW True Originals brake pads are the best in the business, offering high quality, reliable performance that you can trust whenever you need it. Every component of TRW’s aftermarket brake pad range is tested multiple times, including those crucial back plates that carry the friction material. So when you fit TRW True Originals, you’re not just providing great value, you’re also ensuring that your customers’ vehicle safety systems will perform at their best on the road every time.
Whether you’re just looking for replacement brake pads, or you need discs, calipers, shoes or other braking system parts and accessories, we have everything covered for you, making supply and service easy and stress-free.
State-of-the-art brake pad manufacturing
We understand the importance of friction material in front and rear brake pads. Making the friction material compound in-house allows us to find the perfect combination of raw materials from rubber to graphite, generating the safest brake pad performance across all conditions.
Our scorching techniques heat the pads to 600-700oC, which helps to reduce bedding-in time and initial fading. Automatic moulding presses allow us to use deep moulding technology, which produces a more consistent density and porosity. This will give drivers that leave the garage with our replacement brake pads fitted to their vehicles more comfortable journeys because it minimises the amount of judder and noise.
Caring for the environment
TRW introduced one of the first environmentally-friendly brake pad programme for passenger cars in Europe, which means we also never use harmful materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium, antimony, brass or molybdenum.
Over 80% of our brake pads are copper-free, including those for all passenger vehicles
To save energy and reduce CO2 emissions, we use an advanced heat plate scorching system rather than traditional flame scorching – a practice which is now an original equipment (OE) standard.
