The friction material formulation was developed in-house to meet local operating conditions and legal requirements (passing tests for the SABS VC8053 in 2008).

In 2012 the product was approved to the stringent international e-Mark specification.

ATE branded brake shoes for passenger vehicles and LCV’s are quickly gaining acceptance in the aftermarket.

These are not re-bonded but rather manufactured with new components. Core returns are therefore something of the past!

So are arguments about the non-acceptance of damaged cores.

On top of that, retailers no longer have the hassle of handling old and worn components.

The greatest advantage to all concerned is the improved safety aspect of fitting a brand new component.

Our Shoes also adhere to the VC8053 Standard and are approved by the SABS.
