ATE Brake Fluids Deliver Optimal Performance for Electronic, Hydraulic, and Racing Systems

• Exceptional range offers ideal coverage for all types of vehicles
• Formulated to meet specific vehicle performance and safety requirements

Allentown, PA November 3, 2020 – Continental offers an exceptional range of replacement brake fluids that are specially formulated to meet specific vehicle performance and safety requirements. The full portfolio includes ATE Super DOT 5.1, a new technological standard for brake fluids with a high wet boiling point of 356 degrees F and outstanding viscosity even in extreme cold operating conditions; ATE SL.6 Brake Fluid, the ideal brake fluid replacement for ESP, ABS, and ASR electronic brake systems; ATE SL for hydraulic brake and clutch systems; and ATE Typ 200 for the extreme demands of high performance and racing applications.

Dan Caciolo, Head of Product Management for Continental Independent Aftermarket Powertrain & Brake Systems, noted that “ATE Brake Fluids are the result of many years of expertise in the development of original OE brake systems. Viscosity, boiling point, and pressure behavior all interact perfectly to allow the brakes to react quickly and reliably – for every vehicle and every application. Boiling points and viscosity are also designed to exceed the legal specifications, while high-quality additives are incorporated to deliver outstanding corrosion protection and optimum compatibility with the sealing materials.”

ATE Super DOT 5.1 Premium Brake Fluid sets new performance standards for brake fluids. It combines a high wet boiling point of 356 degrees F and outstanding viscosity at very low temperatures, something that previously available brake fluids could not achieve. With a maximum of 750 mm²/sec. at -40 degrees F, ATE Super DOT 5.1 viscosity values exceed even those of ISO Class 6, which are well above the specifications for DOT 5.1 class brake fluids. 

ATE SL Brake Fluid is an excellent DOT 4 replacement for use as hydraulic fluid in brake and clutch systems of motor vehicles. It features a mixture of polyethylene glycol ethers, polyethylene glycols, and boric acid esters of polyethylene glycols with anti-corrosion / anti-aging agents. ATE SL meets and exceeds the requirements of the brake fluid standards FMVSS-No. 116 – DOT 4, SAE J1704 and ISO 4925, Class 4, among others.

ATE SL.6 Brake Fluid is specially formulated for use in ESP, ABS, and ASR brake systems. It features a low-viscosity that allows electronic brake systems to react more quickly for improved safety. ATE SL.6 offers excellent application coverage for the advanced braking systems used in all makes of high-end vehicles.

ATE TYP 200 Brake Fluid exceeds all DOT 4 standards and is designed to excel under the extreme demands of race cars and high-performance drivers. It is compatible with all DOT 3, DOT 4 or DOT 5.1 brake fluids. The formula offers a minimal drop in boiling point due to outstanding water binding properties that result in a long-lasting fluid that can provide optimal performance for up to three years under normal highway driving conditions. The high wet and dry boiling points make this fluid an excellent choice for street driven vehicles as well.
