The ATE Ceramic is not suitable for high performance or racing! The brake pad has been designed for use in normal road traffic and offers a longer service life, less noise and significantly reduced brake dust formation on the rims under normal driving conditions. ATE Ceramic brake pads should not be confused with brake pads for ceramic composite brake discs used in high-priced sports and luxury vehicles. In contrast to conventional brake pads, ATE Ceramic brake pads contain mild abrasives and no steel components. ATE Ceramic brake pads are designed for drivers who demand comfort. Under these driving conditions, the brake pad offers longer brake pad and disc life, less noise and significantly reduced brake dust on the vehicle rims.
As a matter of principle, we do not recommend using the PowerDisc or perforated brake discs in combination with ATE Ceramic brake pads.
