OE Grade Multi-Layer Shim helps reduce vibration and noise

Environmentally Compliant

Certified Environmentally Compliant to "Better Brake Law" standards

Thermal Scorched

Pre-burnishing or "Thermal Scorching" is the final curing step in quality ceramic brake pad manufacturing. The brake pad's surface is heated to remove any uncured bonding agents and to stabilize the friction material to accelerate the break-in process and enhance stopping performance from the first stop.
