Textar Expands range

Published:  10 July, 2019

Brake brand Textar, manufactured by TMD Friction, has expanded its range of brake installation and maintenance products for commercial vehicles with the launch of Hydra Tec.

The new lubricant has been specifically created for hydraulic components in brake and clutch systems and is ideal for lubricating cylinder working surfaces, pistons and sealing elements in bus and coach applications. This makes it overall easier to install hydraulic brake components in the caliper.

Hydra Tec also protects working surfaces and other metallic components against corrosion thanks to its water-repellent properties. The formula prevents brake seizure when used correctly, keeping all the brake components protected and moving as required.

Scott Irwin, Head of Technical Training TMD Friction IAM said: ‘Hydra Tec is the ideal solution for CV technicians when lubricating the caliper’s moving parts. To utilise the paste effectively, we recommend applying a thin, even layer to the working surfaces of the brakes, minus the brake pads, and avoiding using mineral oils as substitutes as the constituents can cause seals to swell and adversely affect the functions of the caliper.’

Available in 180mm tubes, Hydra Tec is compatible with EPDM caoutchouc rubber and commercially available brake fluids including DOT 3, DOT 4, DOT 4LV and DOT 5.1.

Textar covers 99.9% of Europe's commercial vehicle parc, which includes pads, discs and accessories available for next day delivery.
