Many sport or performance vehicles come standard equipped with semi-metallic brake pads from their manufacturers.   This is because semi-metallic brake pads have the ideal combinations of attributes suited for these vehicles and stopping power is one of them.  Semi-metallic brake pads have a high heat threshold and have higher brake fade resistance compared to a ceramic brake pad.  They may also be less expensive than ceramic brake pads; however, semi-metallic brake pads do have a few small disadvantages when compared to ceramic brake pads.

Semi-metallic brake pads are a mixture of brass, copper, steel and metallic fibers.  These materials are more abrasive and can potentially cause the brake rotors to wear down more quickly.   Compared to a ceramic brake pad, semi-metallic brake pads may not last as long and may produce a noticeable amount of brake dust.    There is also a possibility that your brakes may create noise or low squeal, however since semi-metallic brake pads were designed for light or heavy track use, noise is generally not an issue. 

We recommend semi-metallic brake pads for drivers that demand the ultimate stopping response and power.  This stopping power, to some drivers, compensates for the few possible minor disadvantages semi-metallic brake pads have.   For a longer lasting brake pad with similar qualities as semi-metallic brake pads, try our Posi Quiet Extended Wear brake pads!
