Continental Expands European Coverage With ATE Brake Rotors
The ATE brake rotors line from Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket has 25 additional SKUs for European makes. The line now has coverage for more than 87% of all European vehicles, in addition to Asian and domestic vehicles.
The rotors are built to surpass ECE-R90 standards and fit a wide range of vehicle models. Each rotor is a direct match the OE brake discs installed by the manufacturer, whether smooth, drilled, high-carbon, one-piece, pinned or riveted, and with or without wheel bearings.
ATE PowerDisc Brake Rotors feature a stylish, custom appearance and ensure safe braking even in wet conditions and critical situations. A patented multifunction groove is machined into the rotor to help remove dirt and gases that form under the pad during braking, which helps to reduce fading and prevent scoring. This ATE innovation also reveals the amount of wear on the rotor at a glance and serves as a convenient replacement indicator for technician and customer alike.
ATE Single Pack Brake Rotors are designed to deliver braking performance with ultra-low noise and vibration. They are built from OE materials and match the high-carbon content of the OE part. The rotors are high temperature resistant and incorporate a special corrosion protection coating. Full axle coverage is offered for an extensive range of European makes and models. Each rotor is sold individually.
Dan Caciolo, head of product management for Continental Independent Aftermarket Powertrain & Brake Systems, says, “Our ATE disc brake rotors are precisely manufactured from the highest quality OE materials to match original disc brake requirements. The rotor program is built on over 100 years of brake systems experience, and we can offer our customers just what they need to deliver optimal braking performance and the correct rotor for each individual application.”
