MEYLE-PD: Brake Discs and Pads in outstanding quality
Just the right dose of braking feel and good responsiveness play a key role in athletic, performance-oriented driving. That’s where MEYLE-PD comes in: MEYLE-PD brake discs and brake pads are components which offer optimal braking performance and which also set new benchmarks in durability, noise comfort, optics and simple installation – and, of course, they are ECE-certified.
To put it simply: MEYLE-PD brake discs shine without degreasing and offer the utmost in driving comfort as well as durability under the toughest conditions.
Brilliant appearance and no degreasing necessary
High level of resistance to heat distortion under the toughest conditions
Meets and exceeds the highest standards in terms of quality and service
MEYLE brake components – in a league of their own
Innovative products, better solutions, broad coverage and quality that stands out – MEYLE brake components are the best choice when it comes to expertise in aftermarket brakes.
With nearly 4,000 item numbers and EU coverage of 95%, the portfolio is comprised of more than 25 years of expertise in brakes and benchmark-tested parts tailored to the needs of drivers.
MEYLE brake components are available in two product lines: MEYLE-ORIGINAL stands for safety and comfort. MEYLE-PD goes the extra mile and is MEYLE’s own product line designed for advanced spare parts hat set new standards in terms of comfort, functionality and performance.
In addition to over 1500 brake discs and 1300 brake pads, the range also includes brake shoe sets, brake hoses, warning contacts and brake drums.
Individualisation in braking can take place on different levels: through the optimal matching to driver type and vehicle, optimised design for greater sportiness or the best possible composition of materials. To this end, MEYLE knows and works with a wide range of friction materials to generate the optimal driving experience – matched to the driver type and vehicle. The result is 430 individual MEYLE-PD pads with their own specially designed material mixes.
The subject of noise is a particularly important factor in this process. Noise is created by high-frequency vibrations, between the brake disc and brake pad which generate the typical ‘squeaking’ and braking noises. Although a loud squeaking is often recognised as a characteristic of sporty brake pads, MEYLE as a manufacturer takes it one step further and looks for ways to reduce the noise of the components. As things stand today, nearly 50% of the factors identified by MEYLE as being responsible for noise during braking can be impacted by research and development, which is why MEYLE-PD brake pads score points with a number of optimisations to ensure the right factors of low-noise high performance.
Individual shims act as vibration absorbers
Individualised chamfers depending on the type of brake pad ensure that performance is largely noise-free
Another factor of individualisation is the mixture proportions of the friction pad
To put it simply: MEYLE-PD brake pads provide maximum braking performance with a short bedding-in time, work without noise and keep the wheels clean. An unbeatable mix of performance and noise comfort.
Cleaner wheels: less brake dust thanks to improved friction coating mixtures
In addition to less noise, the optimal composition of the friction coating mixtures of MEYLE-PD brake pads delivers another advantage: less brake dust. MEYLE-PD brake pads keep the wheels clean – even over the long term. Compared to the competitors, MEYLE-PD brake pads generate less brake dust during instances of braking.* MEYLE thus once again lives up to its role as a pioneer in the aftermarket segment: since the very beginning, MEYLE-PD components have been free of copper and heavy metals and thus meet the requirements of global regulations today, which reduce or completely prohibit residual amounts of copper, heavy metals and asbestos in brake components. For MEYLE, this has been a matter of course for decades and made clear on MEYLE-PD boxes with the highest level of the ‘Leaf Mark’ safe-braking symbol.
