Zimmermann produces an alternative for Audi brake disc in wave shape

Zimmermann was the first manufacturer to offer an alternative solution for
the original Audi brake disc “Wave” for the aftermarket. The qualitative
characteristics from the original spare part are on a par with the new
model, only the design has been adapted.

With its in-house solution, Zimmermann provides customers with an
alternative to the OE disc, thus supporting cost-efficiency and
competitiveness in the aftermarket. The aim is to cover as many vehicle
models as possible. This brake disc is another decisive step in this
direction, as the Sinsheim-based brake manufacturer mentioned.

Quality as safe as the original

With the introduction of the brake disc for AUDI, Zimmermann has managed the
balancing act of placing an alternative to the original brake discs for many
Audi models on the market, without leaving the aim to be cost competitive.
The Zimmermann discs also deliver the relevant features and technical
advantages of the original spare parts. These include the weight saving due
to the aluminum hub, the free radial expansion of the friction ring due to
the floating mounting of hub and friction ring and the cross-drilling in the
friction surface.

New developments for more competitive ability

Zimmermann also remains true to the original “as close to OE as possible” in
the material. The compound disc is composed of an aluminum hub with a casted
friction ring. Only the design of the “waves”, which can be seen on the
outer diameter of the original brake disc and give the line its name, has
been disclaimed. Elaborate product developments are always necessary when
vehicle manufacturers provide brake discs with patent or utility model
protection. Qualitatively, these developments are as close as possible to
the quality of original spare parts.
