Braking with tradition
For over 100 years, the Mintex brand has consistently demonstrated a commitment to ongoing product development – a philosophy that exists to this day and helps Mintex to stay ahead of the competition.
With world-class resources, and TMD Friction’s vast OE expertise, Mintex friction continues to evolve and set new standards in aftermarket quality and performance across its product range.
As vehicle speeds continue to increase, the demands placed on the brakes become greater. Combined with the increasing market need for OE quality aftermarket friction products, TMD Friction continues to improve the specification of Mintex friction.
European Regulation 90
Regulation 90 (R90) sets a minimum manufacturing and safety standard for replacement brake pads and shoes. During development, each new Mintex brake pad is subjected to much more exhaustive testing than Regulation 90 requires, to ensure it performs not only to R90 standards but to TMD Friction standards.
This advanced test programme, conducted at TMD Friction’s own dedicated test-track, measures braking performance under real-life conditions, as well as noise, wear, pedal feel, comfort and consistency across the temperature range.
In a global car market where values depreciate quickly, Mintex brake pads are developed and engineered to meet a significant demand for cost-effective braking solutions that deliver the optimum balance between performance and extended service life, by providing quality products at affordable prices.
The Mintex range of brake discs are engineered to precise tolerances from advanced alloys for improved resistance to high temperatures.
Developed to the same high standards as for Mintex disc brake pads, our brake shoes offer market-leading performance for rear-axle drum applications.
