VERNON HILLS, Ill. – ZF Aftermarket and Jeff Buckley are pleased to announce their collaboration to provide schools TRW branded brake pads. High schools, colleges and technical centers can enter to win the ‘Installation Education’ contest by answering a question and submitting a photo.

April and October are National Car Care Months, with April focusing on vehicle health and maintenance. Exiting winter and heading into spring months reminds people to make sure their cars are up to par on their regular maintenance checks. As the winter snow melts away and the April showers pour in, it is important for drivers to know they are safe to stop in time with brake pads that do the job.

ZF Aftermarket and Jeff Buckley want to remind everyone of the importance of having quality brake pads, especially during times of weather changes. ZF Aftermarket released its new ‘perfectly tailored’ frictions lines, TRW Ultra and TRW Pro, in November 2019. The lines are designed to meet the OE formula specifications.

The TRW Ultra brake pad line offers nearly 800 SKUs providing over 98% coverage for a wide range of vehicles up to 15 years old. The line also features a CITEC coating, providing vehicles additional stopping performance during the break-in period. The TRW Pro line offers more than 1,000 SKUs providing over 98 percent coverage for vehicles up to 35 years old. With nearly 40 SKUs in both a ceramic and semi-metallic formulation, users can choose the product to best fit their needs.
