Enhanced hybrid technology

Automotive brake pads

The ultimate in braking control Introducing the world’s first enhanced hybrid brake pads.

Gain a new level of control and confidence with Element3™ brake pads with Enhanced Hybrid Technology (EHT™). The world’s first brake pad to deliver the best attributes of ceramic and semi-metallic all in one pad. Element3 supports optimal performance, improves pad wear and durability, and increases stopping power during aggressive braking.

Quiet Steel® Shim

Noise reducing shims use a damping system construction to promote quiet stopping for added performance in a wide variety of temperature ranges and vehicle platforms.


Brake Hardware

For a complete repair, brake hardware and attached electronic wear sensors (where applicable) are included.

  • Abutment Clips
  • Piston Clips
  • Spreader Springs
  • Anti-Rattle Clips
  • Mechanical Wear Sensors

Copper Compliant

Friction manufacturers use copper in their formulations for faster curing and better heat dissipation. But as we learn more about copper's effect on the environment, we are exploring greener alternatives. As we fine-tune our formulas to meet new responsibilities, we remain committed to meeting customer expectations for smooth, quiet braking.

All EHT friction formulations meet 2021 copper compliance requirements. The 2021 laws limit copper to less than 5% by weight after January 1, 2021.
