TRW’s Aftermarket business has announced the publication of a 2015 catalogue to accompany its market leading hydraulic range. This news supports TRW’s position as a leading global supplier of OE quality safety critical braking parts.
Initially available in PDF format, it covers TRW’s seven hydraulic programmes: brake boosters; brake master cylinders; brake pressure valves; wheel cylinders; hoses (brake and clutch); clutch master cylinders and clutch slave cylinders (including concentric slave cylinders). It is divided into four sections: applications; buyers guide; images as seen in TecDoc and an OE cross reference section containing more than 11,000 parts.
Of particular note, the publication contains full details of TRW’s award winning programme of brake hoses which at the last count covered 240 million vehicles across Europe.
TRW’s Marcel Baemer, Marketing Data Manager Global Parts & Service explained: “As safety critical wear items operating under considerable stress, brake hoses should be regularly monitored to prevent system pressure dropping due to loss of brake fluid. With precise concentric fitting holes, our hoses ensure free flow of brake fluid; particularly important for cars fitted with modern Anti-Lock Braking Systems (ABS) and vehicle dynamic control systems, such as Electronic Stability Control (ESC) as it allows for optimum ABS or ESC pressure dump.”
“As a true systems supplier, we work closely with our OE colleagues to ensure the safest translation of technology into parts. And as true partners to our customers, this information translates perfectly into our catalogues.”
