Why Ceramic Brake Pads
Ceramic brake pads have become the braking industrys buzzword these days with everyone going for the ceramic brake pads. So why ceramic brake pads?
Ceramic brake pads are generally quieter and lower dusting than most OEM pads and organic based brake pads. Many ceramic formulations offer extremely low dusting characteristics, preventing dust from accumulating on your wheels.
Since they were first used on a few original equipment applications in 1985, friction materials that contain ceramic formulations have become recognized for their desirable blend of traits. Instead of the semi-metallic pad's steel fibers, the ceramic braking pads make use of the ceramic compounds and copper fibers. This allows the ceramic pads to handle high brake temperatures with less heat fade, provide faster recovery after the stop, and generate less dust and wear on both the brake pads and rotors.
Moreover, the ceramic compounds in the ceramic brake pads make the braking much quieter. This happens as the ceramic compounds help dampen noise by generating a frequency that is beyond the human hearing range.
Ceramic pads meet or exceed all original equipment standards for durability, stopping distance and noise. According to durability tests, ceramic compounds extend brake life compared to most other semi-metallic and organic materials and outlast other premium pad materials by a significant margin with no sacrifice in noise control, pad life or braking performance
Choosing the true ceramic brake pads
Ceramic brake pads are an excellent choice for most vehicles, but there are different quality levels when it comes to ceramic pads. Many companies are now developing so called ceramic pads that are nothing more than an organic brake pads with a small amount of ceramic content that is coated over the top of the brake pad. Brakeworld.com only carries true ceramic pads that contain ceramic formula throughout the entire pad. In our opinion the best performing ceramic pad with the highest level of ceramic content is the "Hyper Ceramic" brake pad. The Hyper Ceramic brake pad is the quietest pad we have ever experienced, as well as one of the lowest dusting.
Hyper Ceramic is a revolutionary "true" organic ceramic formulation designed for cool, clean, quiet and long lasting operation for all vehicles. Hyper Ceramic provides the ultimate in braking friction technology designed as replacement pads for OE ceramic applications or as premium upgrade for all friction materials. Hyper Ceramic is the "true" ceramic formulation. While other friction manufacturers claim to have "ceramic formulations", they are often nothing more than existing semi-metallic formulations with small amounts of ceramic particles introduced into the mix. Don't be fooled by "ceramic enhanced", trust the "true" ceramic formulation...trust Hyper Ceramic-true ceramic brake pad
CeramicoolTM True Ceramic Brake Pads
With state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing process that includes OE style slots and chamfers and premium raw materials, Hyper Ceramic ceramic brake pad is specifically designed to dissipate heat equal or better than any current formulation on the market. In laboratory testing Hyper Ceramic brake pads operate up to 350 degrees cooler than the comparable semi-metallic formulations. The result is consistent braking power, without fade and without fail, each and every time you stop your vehicle. Even under the most extreme driving conditions Hyper Ceramic is the "cool" performer.
With less wear Hyper Ceramic brake pad virtually eliminates the unwanted steel fiber dust contamination associated with most semi-metallic formulations. Your vehicle's wheels, brake rotors and calipers retain their showroom appearance throughout the extra miles provided by the longer life of Hyper Ceramic brake pads. The superior heat dissipation properties of Hyper Ceramic brake pads result in minimal rotor wear that extends the life of the braking system. Hyper Ceramic is an environmentally friendly ceramic formulation.
One of the inherent properties of Hyper Ceramic brake pads is its refined ability to dampen the harsh noises associated with the engagement of semi-metallic pads with the hard metal surface of the rotor. The Hyper Ceramic organic friction formulation eliminates brake groan and creep noise associated with semi-metallic formulations. Also available are, TruQuiet TruFit, noise suppressing shims that can further enhance the benefits of OE style slots and chamfers which are standard on all Hyper Ceramic brake pads.
