Centric developed posi-quiet brake pads to keep your vehicle safe without making a racket. Featuring innovative assembly and dependable materials, these are a step up from the factory pads and applicable for many of today’s most recognizable models.
One thing drivers want less of is noise. That is especially true when it comes to replacing OEM brake pads. The constant friction adds up and metal scraping metal can become disruptive. Posi-quiet brake pads are intended to eliminate this issue. The most important service they offer is improved safety. However, posi-quiet brake pads are specifically manufactured to demonstrate a smoother, more comfortable ride than even the factory aimed for.
A high amount of pressure is applied to the friction surface that makes contact with the rotor. After that, this pressure is also used to bond the backing plate onto the Centric quiet brake pad. This practice is very similar to the one most automakers use to make their brake parts. The difference is that Centric quiet brake pads are shimmed professionally to cut down on excess noise. “Shimming” is a braking term used to describe the inside of the pad that dampens sound. While Centric quiet brake pads are not the only shimmed version out there, they are seen as the most effective. The angling of their surface application cuts down on noise at a much higher rate than stock brake pads with shims.
In addition, vibration is stamped out. While the shims do play a vital role in helping Centric quiet brake pads eliminate screeching and grinding, they are just as adept at trimming shakiness. The usage of stronger material works as a shock absorber as the calipers clamp. That is because the noise-reducing brake pads have shims that are mechanically integrated. There is no gap in the way. When the noise-reducing brake pads are forced to make hard contact they can do so with complete friction. As the pistons retract, the friction dissipates, leading to no residual noise.
The positive molding process Centric uses on the noise-reducing brake pads contributes to “even wear.” Since each pad is conditioned at the plant, inconsistency in degradation is prevented at the contact source. Another benefit to that manufacturing procedure is that the friction will remain constant despite temperature variations. The molded brake pads will perform the same in either extreme hot or cold environments.
