Akebono Brake Corporation has expanded the EURO ceramic brake pad product line to cover a greater number of European vehicle models. Akebono now offers 147 unique front and rear part numbers of its EURO brake pads, featuring its exclusive ceramic technology for popular European vehicle applications.

“Our EURO ceramic brake pads are the industry benchmark, delivering ‘better than new’ performance to delight the drivers of European models,” said Ken Selinger, director, Akebono Aftermarket sales and marketing. “OEMs prefer and specify Akebono ceramic technology brake pads because they stop as well, or better, than conventional friction without the typical problems. ”

Akebono’s ceramic technology is specified by European OEMs for definitive control of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), dust and disc thickness variation (DTV). The pads are 100 percent manufactured in the United States and deliver a very high friction coefficient demanded by European drivers.

Akebono’s ceramic formulations are designed and proven to combat common issues with European brake pad materials, especially abrasion to rotors, and they prevent pedal pulsation and keep European vehicle wheels clean. The Akebono EURO pad line has been compliant with 2021 copper legislation since its introduction in 2005.
