With the increase in the number of different types of the braking pad on the market, you can help you explain the materials used. Each style has advantages and priority applications. Conventional vehicles and trucks do not require the same performance as the braking pad required for heavy vehicles. Performance vehicles and European models also have unique requirements in brake components.

Ceramic braking pads are made of ceramic material. The ceramic offers a smoother, quieter stop force. These mats are not prone to dust, keep the rotor and wheels clean. Reducing dust also means less rotor wear. Ceramic mats are very good for handling a wide range of brake temperatures and less thermal fading. After stopping, the pad is restored quickly. The ceramic brake pads are designed to meet or exceed the durability requirements of all OEMs. Although their cost is usually higher than other high-quality pads, but they will continue for longer and extend the life of the entire brake system.

Semi-metallic braking pads usually contain more than 30% steel or iron, weight. Low metal content of less than 30%. Compared to ceramic mats, advanced semi-metal mats provide greater resistance to temperature fading. However, semi-metal pads do produce more dust than ceramic pads. Manufacture of extended wear pads to provide not only long mats, they are designed to also reduce wear on the rotor. These provide even wear or even frictional performance. Long wear pads are ideal for fleet and drivers who have a lot of mileage each year in the car. These mats do provide a quiet performance, but provide moderate performance in braking. However, the street performance extended wear version is available.

A gasket designated as a standard alternative is a lower cost option designed to meet or exceed most OEM requirements. These mats are often referred to as organic or non-asbestos organic brakes. The materials used in the manufacturing process are different, but usually include rubber, glass and resin. Some of the more advanced organic compounds include Kevlar. These materials do produce moderate dust and wear the same as the OEM pad.
