Extreme pressure compresses the friction material creating a more consistent material density throughout the pad This process utilized by O.E. suppliers is the most advanced available today
Precision cut or shaved backing plates reduce vibration and noise by ensuring proper fit in the caliper, correct fitment results in even pad wear and consistent braking power throughout the lifetime of the brake pad
All Posi Quiet brake pads feature mechanically attached, application specific shims, these shims provide superior noise abatement compared to lesser adhesive or drift-lock style shims
Stable friction performance across wide temperature range
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. The number one reasons for dissatisfaction with brake pads are noise and vibration. Centric Parts has recognized these issues and is constantly improving its products to eliminate these issues. Posi Quiet brake friction features either precision cut or shaved 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 to these features Centric Parts has added a scorching process to all of its Posi Quiet brake pads. This additional process forces any impurities out of the friction material and pre-burnishes the pads to greatly accelerate the break-in process.

Going into this purchase I knew I would be getting a bit different feel in my brake pedal by going to a ceramic pad. That being said the pads are great with only two issues. I have had a squeal for the first 5,000 miles of use. We live near the coast and get a good amount of moisture in the air. The pads squeal the first use they get in the morning but it goes away. They will also give you a small squel the first time they are applied after going through water (car wash or a small stream). From what I understand this is the nature of these high ceramic pads. The noise has mostly gone away now though. Second, the pedal feel is different then stock. After the pads warm up after multiple uses they feel much better but the first hard use in the morning is very "different" feel. Not to say they don't stop but I feel that I have to press harder.
None of this is meant to take away from the product. I knew these were the trade offs I was getting into but wanted to pass...
I've had these on my Tundra for several weeks now, and feel the need to report on these brake pads. The good - Sure progressive stopping power with so much improvement at the pedal. The bad - They squeel badly in the cool of the morning when I'm trying to sneak quietly out of my very small neighborhood that is nestled on a private road, and forced to stop at the intersection. I have another stop sign about 3 tenths of a mile down the road and by this time they have lost the squeel. Yes, I bought new Centric rotors at the same time and yes I put a good amount of anti-sqeel goop on the back of the pads when I installed them.
They work so far,its been just a few months.They came with new hardware incuded new pins.good price.
