HARTLEPOOL, U.K. — Aftermarket braking specialist TMD Friction has added six new brake pads and eight new brake discs to its Mintex product range, extending its product lines to cover more vehicles.

The additions to Mintex’s high-end brake-pad range cover as many as 38 vehicle models across ten vehicle manufacturers, including Audi, Cupra, Ford, MAN, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Seat, Skoda, Toyota, and Volkswagen.

Eight new products have been added to the Mintex brake-disc range for both passenger cars and commercial vehicles, with Renault and Vauxhall van models covered by the new launches.

New Mintex brake pads and discs are designed to meet the exacting demands of complex modern braking systems.

The latest expansion to the Mintex product line means that garages can offer renowned Mintex quality brake pads and discs across more vehicles than ever before.

Mintex brake pads and discs are engineered to provide friction stability, comfort and consistently high performance over a wide temperature range and stopping distances.

All the new references have been added to TecDoc and MAM cataloguing systems, and are also accessible via the online catalogue 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.
