ceramicOn behalf of your new and used Buick Car Dealership in Thunder Bay and the service department that they offer, we have been discussing some of the details surrounding ceramic brake pads.  There are and have been many different options in brake pads over the years, as service centers attempt to offer the best for customers when it comes to noise reduction and effective stopping power, but the ceramic seems to be the best at this time.

Here are just some of the reasons why, researched on behalf of your Buick Car Service in Thunder Bay ON, “These pads use ceramic compounds and copper fibers in place of the semi-metallic pad’s steel fibers. This allows the ceramic pads to handle high brake temperatures with less heat fade, provide faster recovery after the stop, and generate less dust and wear on both the pads and rotors. And from a comfort standpoint, ceramic compounds provide much quieter braking because the ceramic compound helps dampen noise by generating a frequency beyond the human hearing range.”

Also found to be the case, is the fact that the ceramic brake pad ingredients put off a much lighter, less noticeable dust that is also a lot less likely to stick to your Buick Car wheels.  This allows your wheels and tires to remain cleaner looker for a much longer period of time. Most of you will likely be concerned about the most important aspect of brake pads…do they work, and do they last?  The following quote found online will help answer that question, “Ceramic pads meet or exceed all original equipment standards for durability, stopping distance and noise. According to durability tests, ceramic compounds extend brake life compared to most other semi-metallic and organic materials and outlast other premium pad materials by a significant margin – with no sacrifice in noise control, pad life or braking performance.”  So, there you have it, the main reasons behind our Dominion Motors Service Center selling ceramic brake pads for all of your Buick Car brake needs.
