Brake pads are an essential component of the braking system on which the safety of vehicle occupants depends. It is therefore essential to make the right choice. We will tell you what parameters to take into account when choosing your brake pads.
The semi-metallic pad:
They consist of 65% metals and 35% inorgarnic and graphite materials. The advantage of these pads is their ability to remove heat efficiently. However, due to their high hardness, semi-metallic brake pads tend to cause premature brake disc wear. They are a little louder than the others on the market and leave a little more black dust on the wheels.
The ceramic pads :
Ceramic pads are made of fibre, synthetic rubber and non-ferrous materials. These pads are much less abrasive than semi-metallic and allow a shorter braking time. The price of these pad is a little more expensive.
