The ATE PremiumOne rotors are unique, in that each rotor design is application-specific – all are based on the original equipment design and engineered to stringent tolerances, according to the company. Additionally, ATE premium rotors feature a differentiated and patented RotorLife wear indicator, giving technicians a visual indicator of when the rotor should be replaced. The rotor’s groove design also disperses dirt and water and enhances the dissipation of heat and gases to reduce brake fade and extend pad life. In addition, ATE treats each PremiumOne rotor with MetaCote, a protective coating that not only helps prevent rust and corrosion, but also provides an attractive finish.
With a large range of new coated brake rotors for the aftermarket, the ATE brand from the international automobile suppliers Continental puts their great innovative force to the test. The brake rotors have a wide range of features and benefits, for example, excellent braking performance, great optics and lasting corrosion resistance. The new product will be presented to the public at the Automechanika 2008 in Frankfurt (from 16 to 21 September).
ATE PremiumOne Rotors feature a patented RotorLife® wear indicator that provides a quick visual reference of rotor thickness, and helps identify the need for replacement. The wear indicator’s elliptical grooves also dissipate heat and gases in order to reduce brake fade and extend pad life. A MetaCote® protective coating is applied to help prevent rust and corrosion so the rotors maintain a clean appearance.
The new coated ATE brake rotors that Continental will present at Stand A61 of Hall 3 are set to be one of the highlights of the Automechanika 2008 in Frankfurt. For the first time, the replacement parts retailers and independent workshops will not just be given the usual oiled brake rotors; instead, they will see a wide range of modern brake rotor technology in OEM quality that also makes a good optical impression.
|Patented RotorLife wear indicator||Helps technicians and vehicle owners gauge rotor thickness at a glance, and notice when they are due for replacement.|
|The wear indicator’s interlaced elliptical grooves are machined into the rotor face at complimentary angles.||Groove design enhances dissipation of heat and gases to reduce brake fade, extend pad life, and looks great with cast spoke wheels.|
|The MetaCote protective coating formulation is cured at approximately 572°F. No grease or oil to remove.||Helps protect against road salt, brake fluid and other corrosives – sheds water and dirt for clean appearance behind cast spoke wheels. Reduction in overall installation time.|
|Application specific design is engineered to tighter tolerances than rotors that take a “one size fits all” approach.||Fits and performs like or better than the original equipment it replaces – provides added value and convenience for brake technicians and their customers. No machining needed.|
