ATLANTA – As safety regulations and consumer demand for quality parts and components continues to increase, NAPA has answered the call in its new line of Adaptive One (ADO) technology brake pads.

NAPA’s Adaptive One disc brakes for passenger vehicles have long held high standards of quality and versatility. On one side, premium coated shims provide longevity and protection, while 100 percent chamfered slots on the other side ensure maximum friction and even distribution of power when the pad hits the tire. NAPA is first to market with this advanced braking technology, launching the premier line of brake pads even higher.

Advanced noise reduction technology meets a host of other advanced formulations, including total ceramic formulations for cleaner wheels, inner and outer formulations for consistent pedal feel and smooth, safe stopping, and groundbreaking updates to components and materials for reduced brake pad wear.

Notably, NAPA has implemented gold CleanCoat technology for more effective stopping during the break-in process, yielding more seamless braking and even cleaner wheels. Advanced rubberized hardware included in over 95 percent of sold products is designed specifically for the ADO brake pads to ensure exceptional operation for the life of the pad. Furthermore, Adaptive One Passenger Car brake pads combines the optimum quiet and low-dust characteristics of one-pad formulation with the extra braking power of the other pad for consistent pedal feel, minimized dust accumulation and whisper-quiet performance every driver desires.

NAPA is committed to providing the best car-care components around the world, and that is why the line is not limited to North American applications. Fully certified under ECE Regulation 90 (R90) for European motoring, advanced NAPA brake pad technology is available in Europe as well.

ECE Regulation 90 demands that all replacement brake pads operate within 15 percent of the OE product and is required throughout the European Union. Additional required on-car application testing requires aftermarket brake pad parts and components meet certain thresholds on:

Bedding or burnishing
Performance
High torque strength
Hardness and chemical composition
Dimension features

NAPA is confident its R90 brake pads deliver proven performance, confident braking and (most importantly) satisfied customers. Like its North American counterparts, specialized hardware in the NAPA R90 brake pads is designed specifically for the Euro brake pads to ensure exceptional operation for the life of the pad.
