TRW Brake Pads are manufactured by TRW Automotive and have always been the benchmark for the European aftermarket. Also a leading supplier of disc brake systems to vehicle manufacturers including Mercedes, Audi, Volvo, Suzuki, General Motors, Ford, Nissan, Toyota and Mitsubishi. TRW offer two exceptional ranges TRW European formulation & TRW D-TEC Next Generation.
Long before official safety and performance specifications were introduced, TRW had established its own test specification to ensure standards above and beyond the demands of the norm. Alpine tests and high speed fade tests are undertaken by TRW’s state-of-the-art testing facilities. Pads for Australian vehicles were developed on Australian braking systems and extensively road tested in Australia.

TRW’s stringent performance specifications ensure that all TRW pads have excellent fade resistance in most braking conditions, as well as good pedal feel and excellent recovery. TRW brake pads work when cold and continue to perform at very high temperatures. All TRW brake pads are scorched at 650°C eliminating initial fading and reducing the bedding-in time. The scorching process superficially heats the surface of the friction material to release residual gases and resins remaining after the manufacturing process.

All TRW pads are fitted with hot-glued rubber composite shims (or metal/original specification shims if required). This reduces vibration – the major cause of brake noise.

With over 900 references in stock, the TRW range of disc pads is by far the largest single range of disc pads available in Australia. TRW Disc brake pads can be fitted to any vehicle and will provide the driver with absolute braking confidence in most braking situations. Whether it’s a Mini Cooper, a large Ford Falcon V8 or a Toyota Land cruiser, TRW provides “Performance when it counts”.

TRW D-TEC Next Generation pads offer great performance, with less residual dust. TRW engineers have undertaken extensive research and development to bring to you a new generation ceramic friction material which delivers significantly less dust along with greater stopping power. Wear rates have been improved to help make this brake pad a great all-rounder with no compromise.


HPS – High Performance Street disc brake pads are world renowned for increasing stopping power on your street legal vehicle. Increasing the performance of your vehicles braking system is easy when you choose Hawk Performance’s HPS braking compound. This unique Ferro-Carbon formula was developed for street performance using the safety and quality of aerospace and motor sports severe-duty friction technology. The High Performance Street compound offers a higher coefficient of friction over stock brake pads and can provide you 20-40% more stopping power and higher resistance to brake fade than most standard replacement pads. Less fade means you will have a highly durable brake pad with less brake dust.

  • High friction/torque- hot or cold
  • Gentle on rotors
