Types of brake pads


Ceramic brake pads are the latest in pad technology and can deliver the best of all worlds with excellent performance, durability, and quiet, low dust operation.

The dense combination of kiln-fired ceramic material like porcelain blended with carbon, ceramic and metallic fibers, graphite, fillers, and binders varies by manufacturer.

Ceramics are the most expensive type of brake pad but are more durable than organics or semi-metallics.

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.
