We all know BMW brake pads can generate a lot of dust and grime that makes us wash our BMW wheels at least once a week.
Luckily, there are alternatives offered by the aftermarket that produce less dust. However, many of
these aftermarket pads can be very noisy. Centric Posi Quiet Brake Pads for
the BMW E90 335i
offer one alternative that, due to technology, can perform as good as stock
while making almost no dust or noise.
Centric Parts is consistently striving to set the standard in the automotive
aftermarket. In addition to its extensive application of research and friction
component development, Centric is committed to revolutionizing the automotive
brake market through cutting edge technology and O.E. level manufacturing
processes not used by other aftermarket brake component suppliers.
All Centric Posi Quiet Brake Pads for the BMW
E90 335i 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 main problems associated with certain 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 addiction to these features Centric Posi
Quiet Brake Pads for the BMW E90 335i has
added a scorching process to all 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 beak-in process.
Posi Quiet pads are the only full line of aftermarket pads that are scorched.
This OEM process enhances key friction performance levels. Scorching raises
initial cold effectiveness, stabilizes friction levels right out of the box, and
provides consistent performance across the entire operating range.
During the scorching phase, each brake pad surface is super-heated to
simulate the initial break-in process performed by installation technicians.
This additional step removes any uncured bonding agents eliminating the need for
initial break-in and reducing noise caused by pad glazing. Scorching thermally
conditions the pad material which yields a more consistent and higher friction
level right out of the box.
Scorching benefits the vehicle owner by promoting a more complete bed-in of
new pads, increasing the effective stopping power from the first stop.
