Brake Pads (300 series)
Pad vibration is the number one cause of noise or "squealing" associated with braking. To prevent this vibration and eliminate noise, Centric Premium Brake Pads are 100% shimmed.
Correct fit of the brake pad in the caliper also works to prevent vibration and noise. Centric Premium Brake Pads have precision cut or shaved backing plates ensuring proper fit in the caliper body.
Centric Premium Brake Pads feature O.E. style chamfers and gas slots. These details further prevent pad vibration and noise. Gas slots in the friction material work to improve heat dissipation and eliminate issues with out gassing.
All Centric Parts Premium Brake Pads come installation ready with O.E. style wear sensors attached.
Centric Premium Ceramic Brake Pad Features and Benefits
Centric Parts Premium Ceramic Brake Pads feature Positive Mold technology. This O.E. process uses extreme pressure to attach the friction material to the backing plate and provides a more consistent friction material density throughout the life time of the brake pad.
Centric Parts Premium Ceramic Brake Pads are scorched to remove impurities left from the manufacturing process in the friction material. Scorching increases friction levels right out of the box and enhances initial pad/rotor bed-in.
