New Delhi: ZF Aftermarket recently announced that the company has extended its brake disc product range for the electric vehicle Tesla Model S, under its TRW brand.
As per the German company, the new brake discs are manufactured using High Carbon Grey Cast Iron Material (GG15 HC), which allows better cooling. This makes it less likely to distort and suffer from NVH problems such as hot judder and brake squeal.
Richard Adgey, Head of Product Management, ZF, said, “The electrification of the driveline is in full swing and in anticipation of this trend, ZF has developed and now supplies core components as well as entire systems for all vehicle types.”
“The company’s aftermarket division also offers its technical innovations under range of product brands, including TRW, for the aftermarket customers at an early stage,” he further added.
The brake discs are black painted for increased corrosion resistance using TRW’s bespoke surface coating.
The front axle discs are already available in the market, while the rear axle discs will be launched within months, said the company in a release.
