Continental Expands ATE Disc Brake Rotor Coverage

The program, which also delivers coverage for Asian and domestic vehicles, features a range of OE-quality disc brake rotors designed to meet specific vehicle and customer applications.

Continental has expanded its ATE Disc Brake Rotor program with 25 new SKUs for European makes, boosting the application coverage for European vehicles to over 87%.

The program, which also delivers coverage for Asian and domestic vehicles, features a range of OE-quality disc brake rotors designed to meet specific vehicle and customer applications.

Continental says ATE PowerDisc Brake Rotors feature a custom appearance and technology that ensures safe braking in wet conditions and in 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 technology also reveals the amount of wear on the rotor at a glance and serves as a replacement indicator, the company says.

ATE Single Pack Brake Rotors are designed to deliver ultra-low noise and vibration, and are built from OE material and match the high-carbon content of the OE part, Continental says. 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.
