Continental Automotive Systems Inc. unveils the ATE original brake pads in over 150 different friction material formulas and includes 293 part numbers with an application of 104 million vehicles in operation.

The range of compound formulations is so that brake pad friction materials can match the OE pad’s specification, according to Continental officials.

“Many aftermarket brake manufacturers traditionally offer three pad formulations: good, better and best – and some still do,” says Dan Caciolo, head of product management, Continental.

“We believe that every year, make and model deserve the ideal brake pad. With over 150 different pad compounds we have exactly the right product for every vehicle – and the best range for our customers.”
