An important component in the braking system that stops your vehicle. Brake rotors (they're also called brake discs) are what your vehicle's brake pads clamp down on to stop the wheels from spinning. See the two major types of brake rotors.
Ceramic Brake Pads
Are made from ceramic fibers, filler material, bonding agents and they may even have small amounts of copper fibers within them as well. Because they're mostly ceramic, these brake parts dissipate heat well, which keeps performance strong, even after repeated hard stops. They also don't break down very much with repeated use; that means they produce less dust than other types of brake pads and the dust that they do produce is lighter in color and doesn't stick to the wheels.
Are cost-effective and durable. They provide good performance and are good at transferring the heat generated by friction with the brake rotors. Metallic pads are heavy.
