Updated May 22, 2013

TMD Friction announced the launch of the Textar & Don Drum Brake Lining Catalog for Commercial Vehicles.

The catalog provides information on friction materials for specific applications, including on-highway tractor-trailers, buses and coaches and vocational vehicles.

TMD says its Textar premium-quality OE formulas are designed for long-life focused customers and fleets. TMD’s TEXTAR modern formulas are specifically designed to meet today’s OE performance standards and demands, including reduced stopping distance regulations (T5000 and T1200), as well as the demands of heavy-duty applications such as vocational vehicles, transit buses and coaches, refuse, mining, logging and all heavy-load vehicles, the company says. TMD TEXTAR formulas are available for front brakes and for 20,000, 23,000, 25,000, 26,000 and 29,000 lbs. rated axles.

TMD’s Don product offering covers all applications in the economy and standard-grade friction materials up to 23,000 lbs. rated brakes.

Application charts and cross-reference charts for identifying the correct lining for specific vehicle applications are also included in the catalog.
