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.

  • Whiter headlights offer upgrade opportunity 

    The new Ring Xenon5000 headlight bulbs match the colour of LED daytime running lamps without HID or LED technology. Modern vehicle lighting often incorporates low energy, very white LED daytime running lamps (DRLs). These emit an attractive white light, with a very high colour temperature –around 6000K. As most cars still have standard halogen headlights, this can lead to an inconsistent look between the white DRLs and the headlights, which will emit a yellow-tinted light, with a colour temperature of around 2700K. Ring’s latest performance headlight bulb –the Xenon5000–is different. This bulb emits a very white light, with a colour temperature of around 5000K. As well as giving an attractive appearance, the whiter light improves reflections from road signs and markings, and the bulbs put up to 50% more light on the road than a standard halogen headlight, making night time driving safer and more comfortable.The new bulbs come in popular H1, H4, H7 and H11 and references. They require no wiring changes and are ECE Reg 37 approved, making them road legal. The H4, H7 and H11bulbs have a stylish silver tip, to blend into the headlamp unit and give a high spec finish. A countertop display unit is also available.
