Global leader in OE brake technology, TMD Friction, has developed Textar Q+, an innovative dampening shim to provide the ultimate noise reduction, which is now available on a wide range of its premium Textar brake pads.

As an OE supplier, TMD Friction has an established reputation for excellent braking performance and as modern vehicles become quieter, the company is continuously developing new technology to reduce brake noises.

An established but also complex possibility to prevent the transmission of brake noise from the brake pad to the brake system is the use of dampening shims on the backing plate. They prevent direct contact between brake pistons and backing plates. Thus vibration transfer will be effectively dampened.

Textar has extensively developed these dampening shims with the innovative textile-like texture, which dampens and decouples the brake pad effectively from other braking components. The texture is complemented with a unique adhesive to further enhance the dampening function, as it also dampens high frequent vibrations. These unique components are called Q+, meaning ‘quiet’, while the ‘+’ symbolises the improved dampening characteristics. Textar Q+ dampening shims can be easily identified through the textile surface structure as well as the imprinted Q+ Logo.

Scott Irwin, technical manager at TMD Friction, said: “Being at the forefront of technology is one of TMD Friction’s objectives and the Textar Q+ is the latest in a long line of innovations to help improve the driving experience for customers worldwide.”

Comprehensive tests, including a dynamometer test and on the road test, showed significant comfort improvements with Q+. The best results will be achieved when new Q+ brake pads are combined with Textar brake discs as these components complement each other.
