Posi Quiet brake pads are manufactured using the same positive molding process utilized by Original Equipment suppliers. Positive molding uses extreme pressure to compress the friction material and bond it to the backing plate. This process assures consistent friction material density throughout the pad, resulting in even wear and performance characteristics throughout the life of the brake pad.


The number one cause for customer returns are noise and vibration. Centric Parts has recognized these issues and is constantly improving its products to eliminate these issues. Posi Quiet brake friction features either precision cut or shaved backing plates and mechanically attached shims; these small details ensure proper fitment in the caliper and virtually eliminate noise associated with pad vibration. In addition to these features Centric Parts has added a scorching process to all of its Posi Quiet brake pads. This additional process forces any impurities out of the friction material and pre-burnishes the pads to greatly accelerate the break-in process. 


All Posi Quiet brake pad friction formulations are asbestos free and are available in three application specific compounds complete with all necessary hardware for installation where applicable.

All Centric brake pads comply to current brake friction material legislation. More information regarding these state mandates can be found here

Features and Benefits

All Posi Quiet brake pad sets come complete with application specific hardware including stainless abutment clips and retaining clips. *Where applicable.
Extreme pressure compresses the friction material creating  a more consistent material density throughout the pad. This Positive Molding process utilized by O.E. suppliers is the most advanced available today.
Precision cut or shaved backing plates reduce vibration and noise by ensuring proper fit in the caliper. Correct fitment results in even pad wear and consistent braking power throughout the lifetime of the brake pad.
All Posi Quiet brake pads feature mechanically attached, application specific shims. These shims provide superior noise abatement compared to lesser adhesive or drift-lock style shims.


Scorching
Posi Quiet brake pads are scorched to accelerate the break-in process. This OEM process enhances key friction performance levels. Scorching raises initial cold effectiveness, stabilizes friction levels right out of the box, provides consistent performance across the entire operating range.

During the scorching phase; each brake pad surface is super-heated to simulate the initial break-in process performed by installation technicians. This additional step removes any uncured bonding agents eliminating the need for initial break-in and reducing noise caused by pad glazing. Scorching thermally conditions the pad material which yields a more consistent and higher friction level right out of the box.
Scorching benefits the vehicle owner by promoting a more complete bed-in of new pads, increasing the effective stopping power from the first stop.
