People that like to keep a clean car with clean chrome wheel will be very satisfied with ceramic pads. They produce very little brake dust and what is produced can generally be wiped away by hand, maintaining a very clean appearance. Generally abrasive de-greasers and cleaners are not necessary to remove the dirt. The weight savings afforded by ceramic, though minimal, are another advantage. This would be important mostly in racing applications where every pound counts, but it cannot be denied as an advantage for even the most modest daily driver.

Every pound helps improve gas mileage. The compound used to produce ceramic pads makes them extremely quiet. Metallic and semi-metallic brake pads commonly installed in vehicles from the factory are usually associated with a very irritating squeaking noise. This can be attributed to the metal in the brake pads grinding against the metal of the rotors. Ceramic brakes solve this irritation by eliminating the abrasive metals that cause these aggravating sounds. Ceramic brake pads do not eliminate noise altogether, but they produce it in a frequency that cannot be heard by the human ear.

All brake pads perform as required, meaning they stop your vehicle when you put your foot on the brake pedal. That said, while there are advantages with all brake lining compounds the only advantage that the semi-metallic pad offers is an incredibly low price. Alternatively, Ceramic Brake Pads offer some notable advantages. First and foremost, the ceramic pad does not create a visible brake dust that blackens your wheels. If you have wheels that you are proud of, i.e. chrome or wheels that cost more than your vehicle; you will be a big fan of the ceramic brake pad.

The second advantage is the reduced tendency to squeal. The ceramic compound does not contain steel fibers; the metal content in some semi-metallic pads was found to be the source of brake squeal for some manufacturers. The ceramic compound also typically lasts longer than a semi-metallic compound, and this is seen as an advantage with most vehicles, because pads normally wear out quicker than the rotors. Finding a perfect balance of wear between rotors and pads, so that rotors need to be replaced at the same time as the pads do, is the ideal situation. Ceramics typically help make this happen, but most vehicles' brake designs are quite different and this is not always the case.

Fortunately for all of us, with the substantial progress of brake pad materials during the last 25 years, we've moved on from the dangers of asbestos pads and improved on the braking capacity of organic pads, too. In addition, the introduction of ceramic pads has also overcome the disadvantages of steel strands, which were incorporated in semi-metallic pads for added strength and heat conduction, but created noise and were sufficiently abrasive as to cause rotor wear.If you want to see more, you can visit
