For European, American and Australian makes

2022 heralds a significant change in Adrad’s parts range expansion with the introduction of braking products.
Adrad explains that its customers already rely on the company to supply reliable parts that perform to OE specifications or better, but this represents a new level of duty.
Unlike engine cooling parts, optimal performance of brake products are required to save lives.
As a crucial safety component that protects the vehicle and occupants, Adrad says it has ensured it is offering parts with the highest quality and integrity.
Many Australian mechanics are familiar with TMD Friction – a global leader in brake friction solutions, trusted by the biggest brands in the automotive and industrial sector to deliver effective, reliable and safe braking applications.
Adrad says TMD Friction is the preferred supplier for the global leading car brands and commercial vehicle manufacturers. Its products are also chosen to provide effective, safe braking for some of the world’s most prestigious racing series, such as The Le Mans 24 hours.
The “M” in TMD stands for Mintex – a brand with a rich history and pedigree. Times and automotive technology may have changed and evolved through the generations, but Adrad says Mintex‘s commitment to safe braking has stood firm since 1908.
Today, Mintex products are fitted on millions of cars across the world, keeping workers and families safe every day.
Mintex as a brand has evolved, not just through technology to keep at the forefront of the increasingly complex braking systems on a modern-day car, but also as a brand itself. Mintex continues to evolve, keeping an ever-increasing number of people safe on today’s roads.
TMD Friction prides itself on producing technically advanced products, and each and every product has been developed in the spirit that Mintex is renowned for. It says its continued success is based on providing technical excellence, consistent quality and constant innovation through intensive R&D investment.
The manufacturer is constantly developing and refining products to improve performance for quieter, smoother, more efficient and environmentally responsible braking. Millions of Euros are invested each year to ensure products not only meet the demands of today, but pioneer the technology that will be needed for tomorrow.

Pads and discs
Developed and engineered to set new standards in aftermarket friction, Mintex brake pads are said to provide the optimum balance of performance, comfort and extended service life. The matching range of brake discs is engineered to ensure safe performance and to meet critical tolerance levels, that are the basis for comfortable braking.
Shoes and Shoe Kits
Developed to the same high-level standards as the Mintex disc brake pads, Mintex brake shoes offer market-leading performance for drum brake applications. Mintex brake shoe kits are the preferred choice when it comes to quick and easy installation.

Brake Drums
Precision casting and finishing provides consistent levels of quality and stable braking performance across the Mintex drum range.

Noise Fix Solutions
A wide range of noise fixes is used to match OE specifications and to meet the need for Original Equipment quality products in the aftermarket.

Mintex Cera TEC is an advanced non-metallic lubricant. It protects against corrosion, helps to reduce brake noise and is usable for ABS / ESP equipped vehicles. The Mintex brake fluid range covers all DOT specifications for use with drum, disc and ABS / ESP equipped vehicles.
As vehicle speeds continue to increase, the demands placed on the brakes become greater. But there are not only higher performance requirements – also comfort aspects have become more important.
Adrad states the Mintex brand has always demonstrated a commitment to ongoing product development – a philosophy that exists to this day and helps Mintex to stay ahead of the competition.
You will have the opportunity to see a selection of Mintex brake products at the Australian Auto Aftermarket Expo held in Melbourne from April 7-9 by visiting Adrad at Stand C41.
Mintex braking products are available to trade customers from Adrad distributors around Australia and online from Radshop and Natrad Trade Online.
