Semi-metallic brake pads are most likely best suited to high-performance race cars. If you have a vehicle that can go from 0 to 60 mph in a matter of seconds, this is the option for you.
The high-carbon ceramic formula is manufactured from composite materials. The friction layer itself and on both sides are made of carbon fiber reinforced silicon carbide.
This innovative braking technology revolutionizes conventional brake pad technology. It has the following characteristics: brakes are responsive and brake attenuation is reduced/ high thermal stability/ no thermal vibration noise/ pedals feel extremely comfortable/ improved handling/high abrasion resistance and virtually no dust.
This formula is mostly used in competitive racing.
Carbon-ceramic brake pads have extremely high and constant coefficients of friction, regardless of how wet or hot the surface is.
