MEYLE is expanding its product range to include the two-component brake discs for common BMW and Mercedes models.
The new brake discs “offer customers the usual OE qualities such as accurate fit, low offset, reduced weight and the associated fuel savings and decrease in CO2. At the same time, the new brake discs boast high performance, driving comfort and sophisticated design, as is typical of the MEYLE PD line,” the company said.
Thanks to its new products, MEYLE is expanding into the aftermarket for brakes with solutions in areas previously reserved for vehicle manufacturers with their original parts. Seven new references for the two-component MEYLE PD brake discs are available for the BMW models 3 to 8 Series X3 to X5 and Z4; and for Mercedes C-Class and E-Class models.
The brake discs feature an aluminum or stamped-steel hat riveted to the cast-iron friction ring.
Due to the high-quality surface coating, the ECE-R90-certified brake discs do not require degreasing, thus ensuring long-lasting protection against corrosion, according to MEYLE.
A higher percentage of carbon makes the two-component brake discs exceptionally resistant to heat distortion even in cases of higher thermal stress – for example, on steep mountain descents – for extended driving comfort without vibrations, according to the company. To ensure efficient installation at the workshop, 99% of the brake discs are equipped with a fixing screw.
