TOMEX Brakes is one of the biggest manufacturers of the elements of brake systems in Europe. Each year over 10 million of brake pads, brake shoes and other accessories related to them intended for passenger vehicles and vans as well as trucks and buses leave production halls of the company. The modern machine park, innovative technology and European standards allow us to offer products of the highest quality.
Brake pads are the basic component of disc brake systems. Apart from the brake discs, it is the element which is subject to the most extreme load during operation.
Brake shoes are the basic part of drum brake systems. Friction linings fixed to the shoes are subject to significant contact force while braking.
Modern chemical agents are used for maintaining hygiene of the brake system, degreasing and removing of contamination. A properly cleaned system operates efficiently and does not expose the friction linings to a faster than standard wearing.
Brake wear sensors
The element for controlling the condition of brake pads. Brake pads wear sensors allow preventing from situations in which a vehicle loses its ability to brake in a proper manner.
Sets of accessories
Complete sets of accessories allow for fast and comfortable assembly of brake shoes. They guarantee adequate operation of the system and also save time during the replacement.
High quality wheel rotational speed sensors (ABS = Anti-Lock Braking System). ABS sensors directly influence the safety of driving.

If you want to broaden your knowledge or if you are looking for the right solution, here you can find answers to the most frequent questions regarding the brake system.
Are there any sport versions of brake pads?
Yes, but they shall not be used in commercial vehicles. The pads characterize with completely different properties, mostly because of extremely high temperature of discs created by the friction force. The pads are manufactured especially for the type of competition, they are soft and adjusted to the high temperatures due to which they wear very…
Is it necessary to replace brake pads/shoes in both wheels of one axle at the same time?
Yes, it is absolutely mandatory. In the event of replacing one side, where the thickness and efficiency of braking may be different, it may lead to the steering wheel and brake pedal vibration and what is worse, the driver may lose control of the car while braking.
Does the possession of ABS condition the purchase of other brake pads/shoes?
Brake system with ABS very often have different brake clamps and it is necessary to purchase brakes applicable for the given vehicle model.
Is it necessary to replace the rear brake pads while replacing the front ones?
The braking force in a vehicle is distributed in the following proportions: 70% front axle and 30% rear axle. During every replacement of the brake pads of the front axle it is necessary to check the condition of the real axle brake. It is assumed that during every second replacement of the front axle brakes,…
