Textar Bi-Metallic Discs

Published:  27 July, 2018

The bi-metallic disc from Textar helps to reduce vehicle weight and emissions, while utilising a range of innovative materials. The lightweight nature of the discs helps to reduce fuel consumption and is kinder to the environment as a result. The use of different materials ensures the best components are specified for the disc’s individual purposes. The top hat needs to be both light and strong with a robust interface between the friction surface and wheel hub. The friction ring on the other hand must resist high pressures and temperatures. Textar’s bi-metallic discs also fulfil ECE R90.

  • Pagid brake discs go beyond ECE R90  

    Pagid has implemented the ECE R90 standard across its brake discs range for pre-November 2016 passenger car models, going beyond the legal requirements. The R90 international requirement applies to all new brake discs fitted to vehicles manufactured after November 2016. Geometric parameters, chemical composition, design, microstructure, mechanical properties and key dimensions are all tested by an independent body, both in the lab and on the road. This ensures the brake parts match their stringent standards. Pagid is part of TMD Friction, a registered R90 approved licence holder.
