Element3™ - Enhanced Hybrid Technology (EHT™)

Element3 - EHT

The future of brake technology is already here.

Element3™ with Enhanced Hybrid Technology (EHT™) offers:

  • The best attributes of ceramic and semi-metallic all in one pad
  • Unsurpassed stopping power and vehicle control
  • Domestic and import applications
  • Late model coverage
  • Improved pad wear and durability
  • Increased stopping power during aggressive braking

Drivers looking for top-of-the-line braking technology with unprecedented braking control and stopping power should look no further than Raybestos® EHT friction.


Enhanced Hybrid Technology
combines the best attributes of
ceramic and
semi-metallic in one pad


Formulated for long life, less noise,
reduced dust, and better wear
and durability

Stopping Power

Engineered for maximum control in
aggressive stopping situation


Element3 – EHT is made of a premium blend of friction materials which supports:

  • Optimal performance
  • Improved pad wear and durability
  • Increased stopping power during aggressive braking


The shims on our EHT brake pads use a noise-damping system to promote quiet stopping in a wide variety of temperature ranges and vehicle platforms. 

The EHT shim is made up of five layers, including:

  • Clear epoxy coating
  • Two layers of cold rolled steel
  • Modified nitrile rubber
  • Viscoelastic material

Electronic Wear Sensor

Electronic wear sensors are included in your EHT box if the application calls for it. 

Brake Hardware

Stainless steel brake hardware is included with your EHT friction, where applicable. Depending on what the application calls for, the following hardware may be included in your EHT box:  

  • Abutment Clips
  • Piston Clips
  • Spreader Springs
  • Anti-Rattle Clips

Copper Compliance

EHT is ahead of the curve when it comes to copper compliance. According to the Copper-Free Brakes Initiative, by 2021, all brake pads must limit copper found in friction materials to no more than 5 percent of a pad’s weight. 

We can proudly state that all EHT brake pads currently meet the 2021 standards. By 2021, we intend to meet the 2025 standards by limiting copper in all EHT friction to no more than 0.5 percent of the pad’s weight.  

One Million Miles of Testing

We performed more than one million miles of on-road testing with the Element3 – EHT brake pads across the following platforms:

  • Domestic
  • Import
  • Light truck
  • Fleet

These tests resulted in a brake pad with:

  •  20 to 25 percent improved stopping power
  •  Reduced noise
  • 35 percent wear reduction
