Centric 104.13221 Posi-Quiet Semi-Metallic Brake Pads offer bite levels similar to OEM formulas with reduced levels of noise and dust. Posi Quiet Semi-Metallic pads are well suited to street driving under all weather conditions.
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. Posi Quiet pads feature exact fit 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, Centric Parts has added a scorching process to all of its Posi Quiet brake pads. This additional step removes any uncured bonding agents, eliminating the need for initial break-in and reduces 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 and greatly accelerates the break-in process.
