TRW Brake Pad Lines Come in New Formulations and Packaging

Feb. 19, 2020

Two new TRW Brake Pad lines from ZF Aftermarket feature new formulations and new packaging.

The TRW Ultra and TRW Pro friction lines were launched in November 2019 in new formulations.

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% coverage for vehicles up to 35 years old. With nearly 40 SKUs in both a ceramic and semi-metallic formulation, users can choose the Article to best fit their needs.

The packaging for both friction lines features a simple, clean design which ties into ZF Aftermarket’s “It’s About the Part” campaign.

The backside of the box has a blueprint of either a TRW Ultra or TRW Pro brake pad – further highlighting the fundamental importance of design and development, according to the company. Key features and benefits of the brake pad line are highlighted, such as the slotted and chamfered OE configurations, installation hardware where applicable, a “fits right the first time” promise, and copper-free formulation.

The TRW Ultra and TRW Pro lines are both copper-free, putting the Article lines ahead of the California copper-free legislation deadline of 2025. The company says technicians can reach out for more information through the social medias listed on the box.

TRW, a brand of ZF Aftermarket, says TRW corner module components, inclusive of braking, steering and suspension, are designed to work together perfectly in a vehicle, offering a high level of quality, innovation and safety.
