Mintex Expands Disc Line

HARTLEPOOL, U.K. — Braking specialist TMD Friction UK has introduced five new brake disc references to its renowned Mintex braking brand product line.

TMD Friction UK’s ongoing commitment to research and development has delivered new Mintex brake disc parts, including MDC3158C for popular MG ZS and SUV (2017-) passenger car models.

The Mintex range of commercial vehicle braking parts expands with the addition of four new brake discs, including MDC3160C for Nissan Cabstar, NT400 Cabstar and Renault Maxity trucks (2006-).

Further product introductions include MDC3170C for Fiat Ducato bus and van vehicles, and MDC3172C and MDC3173C for Volkswagen Multivan T7 vehicles (all 2021-).

All Mintex brake pads and discs are designed to meet the exacting demands of complex modern braking systems. Each product is engineered to provide friction stability, comfort and consistently high performance over a wide temperature range and stopping distances.

The new references are accessible via the brand’s online catalog Brakebook, by entering the Mintex part number. The expert search function also allows searching by product criteria such as width, height, thickness, drum diameter and many other criteria, making the identification of brake parts as easy as possible.

Mintex Brakebook allows users to create catalogues tailored to their individual requirements, whether for the entire product range, a selection of products or even for special models.

All new references have also been added to TecDoc and MAM cataloguing systems.
