New ATE Ceramic Brake Pads Now Available for European Vehicle Applications

Company says they are engineered to deliver extended life with exceptional low-dust, low-noise performance.
ALLENTOWN, Pa. — Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket, a leading aftermarket supplier of OE-engineered aftermarket products, offers a new line of ATE Ceramic Brake Pads, which are now available for a wide variety of European vehicles.

These brake pads are based on a new, high-technology friction formulation, which, when compared to conventional compounds, produces almost no wear debris. The low-dust operation of these brake pads ensures that valuable rims retain an attractive appearance for a longer period. The innovative compound used in ATE Ceramic Brake Pads also reduces noise during braking and helps provide ultra quiet performance.

Extensive comparison tests under tough daily operating conditions have shown that ATE Ceramic brake pads last longer than standard brake pads and significantly extend the service life of the brake rotors. This reduction in wear reduces repair costs and saves money for motorists.

ATE Ceramic Brake Pads are engineered to OE specifications for optimum fit, form and performance. They are application-matched to meet specific vehicle requirements. All pads include shims, chamfers and wear sensors based on the OE vehicle specification, as well as the applicable OE hardware for a fast and easy installation. ATE Ceramic Brake Pads meet strict European ECE R90 standards. This assures quality equal to or better than the original equipment they replace.

From the introduction of the first hydraulic brake system in 1926 to the development of the first antilock braking system prototype in 1967, the ATE brand has a rich history of innovation and experience in the design and production of advanced brake system technologies.
