NAO organic pads are the most used. It offers quiet and predictable performance which meets almost all drivers’ requirements. Organic brake pads cannot be confused for organic broccoli rabe. NAO is for non-asbestos. Asbestos was a common brake pad friction material until it was determined to cause irreversible lung damage and cancer.

The organic pads are less damaging than the others and can last longer. They are also easier to maintain. They are less resistant to heat and can collect dust. Most new vehicles roll out of the factory with organic brake pads, so look for stock replacement pads to restore original performance.

Which Brake Pads Are Ceramic or Semi-Metallic? What is the Difference?

Maintenance Your Vehicle

The most important safety feature in your car is the braking system. But while you rely on brakes every day to help you safely get from point A to B, you probably don’t think about what’s actually happening when you press on the brake pedal.

You can understand the basics of how it works by stepping on the brake pedal. Your vehicle pumps brake fluid through its lines into the caliper at each wheels. There are brake pads. The brake fluid pushes the brake pads against a disc rotor in each wheel to slow it down, gradually bringing your wheels to a stop.

The brakes convert your car’s kinetic energy to heat through friction from the brake pads. This article will take you through this important component and explain the advantages and disadvantages of semi- and ceramic brake pads.

Nowadays, there are three options for brake pads available to drivers: organic vs. semimetallic. This wasn’t always true. It was in 1921 that brake pads were invented. Bertha Benz, the famous inventor of Mercedes-Benz and wife to Karl Benz, is credited for creating the first leather brake pads in 1888.

With technological advances, brake pad materials have changed. It wasn’t until the mid-to-late 20th century, as drum brakes were increasingly replaced by modern disc brakes, that manufacturers began producing the ceramic, metallic and organic brake pads used today.

Brake Pads Made from Organic Materials

The original brake pads used in disc brakes were made of asbestos. As an heat-absorbing material, it is well-suited to the amount of wear that brake pads experience. The dangers of asbestos exposure led to the discovery that it is a carcinogen. These brake pads made from asbestos would eventually fail, releasing asbestos into the atmosphere for motorists to inhale. It was discovered by manufacturers that asbestos is not safe for brake pads. To address the problem, either organic brake pads or NAO (non-asbestos organic) brake pads were made.

A mixture of materials and fibers such as fiberglass, carbon compounds, glass and rubber make up organic brake pads. These are used on around 67% American new vehicle sales. Organic brake pads tend to be less dusty than traditional pads such as metal pads. They also come in a lower price range.

Unlike performance brake pads, which are primarily used in heavy and high-performance vehicles, organic brake pads generate a moderate amount of friction without much heat being present, making them suitable for drivers who use their cars for everyday driving and commuting. Also, organic brake pads are quieter and less stressful on brake rotors than traditional brake pads. This is an advantage as brake rotors can be expensive to replace or repair.

However, organic brake pads do have some disadvantages when compared to other types of brake pads. They can be more susceptible to wear due to the composite nature of organic brake pad, so they may have to need to replaced more often. They are also more effective in low temperatures. Semi metallic brake pads perform less well in harsh weather conditions or when they’re being heated up too much. The compressibility of organic brake pads is higher, so the driver must press harder on the pedal to activate them.

best brake pads

Ceramic Brake Pads

Ceramic brake pads use a similar material to what is used to create pottery and plates. Ceramic brake pad material, however, is denser and considerably more durable. To increase friction and heat conductivity, ceramic brake pads have copper fibers in them.

Ceramic brake pads were first developed in mid-1980s. They have been gaining popularity ever since.

Noise-Level – Ceramic brake pads create very little sound when the brakes have been applied.

Ceramic brake pads produce less wear and tear residue than organic pads.

Temperature and Driving Conditions. Ceramic brake pads offer greater reliability in extreme temperatures and under difficult driving conditions than traditional organic pads.

Ceramic brake pads, however, have certain limitations. The main problem is their price: Ceramic brake pads can be more expensive because of higher manufacturing costs. Also, since both ceramic and copper can’t absorb as much heat as other types of materials, more of the heat generated by braking will pass through the brake pads and into the rest of the braking system. This could cause additional wear on other components. Ceramic brake pads may not be the most suitable for driving in harsh conditions. Metallic brake pads are better if you have to choose between semi-metallic or ceramic for extreme driving conditions.

Ceramic Vs. Ceramic, Which Brake Pads Are Right for You?

How do you decide between ceramic, semi metallic and organic brake pads. This will depend on the recommendations of your vehicle manufacturer and how you drive.

Semi-metal brake pads will work best if you own a fast sports car or drive it like one. On the other hand, if you do a lot of urban commuting, you might find a solid ceramic brake pad to be the better option. A low mileage, organic brake pads might work best for you.

It doesn’t matter what type of brakes you use, it is important to have your brakes checked and the brake pads changed regularly. The squeal from the pad’s base when it is in contact with the rotating rotor will indicate that your brake pads require replacement. As a sign of wear, all brake pads contain tangs. Don’t delay in getting new pads if this happens. It is then up to you whether ceramic or metallic brake pads are best for your needs, or organic pads for an affordable option.

The table below illustrates how metallic, organic and ceramic brake pads compare.
