Centric Parts Premium Brake Pads provide superior stopping power and reliability for passenger cars and light duty trucks. Centric Parts’ engineers have worked with leading brake pad manufacturers to develop two application specific friction compounds that combine improved braking performance and reduced noise under braking. All Centric Premium Brake Pads are installation ready with shims installed to prevent noise associated with pad vibration. Centric Premium Brake Pads also feature O.E. style gas slots and chamfers to optimize braking performance in repeat stop situations. All Centric Premium Brake Pad formulas are 100% asbestos free and have O.E. style wear sensors installed.

Centric Premium Metallic Brake Pads are formulated for increased service life while maintaining high friction levels at all operating temperatures.

Centric Premium Ceramic Brake Pads are manufactured using Positive Mold technology that provides even wear characteristics throughout the lifetime of the brake pad. Centric Premium Ceramic Brake Pads are scorched to remove impurities in the friction material and improve initial pad/rotor bed-in.

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

Centric Premium Brake Pad Features and Benefits

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.
