Allentown, PA November 1, 2022 - Continental, one of the world's leading brake system manufacturers and suppliers, now offers expanded ATE Disc Brake Pad coverage for over 95% of European vehicles. Semi-metallic and ceramic formulations are available for most models from Alfa Romeo, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Porsche, Range Rover, Renault, Saab, smart, Volkswagen, and Volvo.

ATE aftermarket brake pads have set the standard for friction in Europe and around the globe. ATE engineers utilize over 150 different friction formulations to ensure that the pads deliver the ideal braking solution for specific vehicle applications and provide full braking power instantly without fade, squeal, or judder. Every pad is engineered for low heat transmission to prevent pedal failure and equipped with underlayers and damping sheets to minimize noise and provide smooth operation. 

“ATE Disc Brake Pads are formulated to strict OE friction specifications and built and tested to meet or exceed OE manufacturers’ quality standards. We subject our pads to over 50 rigorous tests to make certain that they not only meet OE manufacturers requirements, but also exceed our own even more stringent safety and performance criteria,” noted Nathan Killeen, Product Manager, ATE Brake Systems.
