Reducing the noise

Brakes from TMD Friction

Published:  17 November, 2016

TMD Friction has launched the Mintex FIT Shim, designed and developed for the aftermarket to effectively dampen brake noise.

The Floating Isolation Technology (FIT) used within the product is based upon a decoupling and absorption mechanism. The Mintex FIT Shim is clipped to the brake pad backplate, allowing it to move between the caliper and the pad's backplate under load. This offers superior noise and vibration isolation.
