SEM METALLIC VS CERAMIC BRAKE PADS IN LUXURY CARS
Your brake pads are perhaps the most critical safety mechanism in your vehicle. Thus, your choice of replacement for Brake Pads is crucial to you and your family’s safety. Never settle for less!
SEM METALLIC BRAKE PADS
Semi metallic brake pads are made of metals including copper, iron, steel, and other composite alloys. They are aggressive on the braking system and damage the brake rotors due to high percentage of metal, so you’ll need to check your rotors more often for thinning. They also produce more black dust and tend to be noisier than ceramic brake pads due to metal to metal contact between the semi metallic brake pads and the brake rotors. They are not very durable and do not last as long as ceramic brake pads.
CERAMIC BRAKE PADS
These brake pads are made of ceramic materials with copper fibers which helps them conduct heat away from the wheel and increase friction. Ceramic brake pads are noise free and produce no black dust as they metal free. They also put no strain on the brake rotors as there is no metal-to-metal contact between the brake pads and rotors and also last more than semi metallic brake pads. ceramic brake pads are quiet, comfortable, durable pads with ultimate stopping power and high friction materials. The only downside to ceramic brake pads is that they are more expensive than Semi-metallic brake pads.
WHY COMPANIES PROVIDE SEMI METALLIC BRAKE PADS IN YOUR CAR?
There are three main categories of brake pads- Organic, Semi-Metallic, and Ceramic. Ceramic brake pads are the best in terms of quality and performance, but they are more expensive. On the other hand, Organic brake pads are poor in terms of braking performance. Semi Metallic brake pads fall in between and thus companies provide the same in your cars.
A simple example for your understanding- you buy a smart phone from Samsung, and it comes with a charger of 20W. But you can purchase a charger of 30W from the market with faster charging.

WHAT ABOUT LOW AND MID SEGMENT CARS?
For low and mid segment cars like Maruti, Toyota, Skoda, Chevrolet, Honda, Volkswagen, Hyundai etc, semi metallic brake pads are a good option as the engine of these cars are not as powerful as premium cars, thus, less braking force is required. Installing good quality semi metallic brake pads in these cars will save you money and wont compromise on performance.
