The brake pads of an automobile are what grip the disc brake rotor in order to allow the driver to slow down and stop the vehicle. While semi-metallic brake pads are the most popular brake pad type, they aren’t necessarily the best brake pads.
Two common, and arguably better, brake pad types are organic brake pads and ceramic brake pads. Here’s a comparison including pros and cons of each.
Ceramic Brake Pads
Ceramic brake pads will certainly last a lot longer than organic brake pads. They are less abrasive on the brake rotors which means they won’t get worn down so much when the brakes are applied.
Surface Transforms plc (LON:SCE) are experts in the development and production of carbon-ceramic materials and the UK’s only manufacturer of carbon-ceramic brakes for automotive use.
