ZF Aftermarket extends its portfolio of semi compound brake discs by TRW
In response to strong demand from the market, ZF Aftermarket is expanding its portfolio of semi compound brake discs. Under the TRW brand, which represents decades of expertise and innovation in the development of braking systems, the business now offers independent workshops semi compound brake discs for the above-mentioned Mercedes-Benz volume models.
Thanks to our strategic portfolio expansion in the area of semi compound brake discs, our workshop partners can not only equip additional private vehicles with OE-quality spare parts, but also serve cab fleet operators for whom the corresponding Mercedes-Benz models are particularly popular, says Ulf Haase, Head of Product Management Braking.
In the segment of semi compound brake discs, products are now available for:
Less weight and CO2 emissions
The reduced weight of a semi compound brake disc, compared to a full cast brake disc, reduces the unsprung masses, which improves driving comfort and NVH (Noise, Vibration & Harshness) behavior. Due to the reduced thermal expansion, the braking system operates at a lower temperature level, thus creating reserves to be able to draw on full braking power in an emergency.
Since independent workshops are also serving an increasing number of fleet customers, such as cab companies, the expansion of the program in the segment of two-piece brake discs for popular Mercedes-Benz models is particularly important for them.
