Sintered pad is made from a mixture of metallic ingredients. They are good at transferring the heat generated by the friction that is created from the contact with the brake rotors. Metallic pads provide much better resistance to brake fade than Organic pads. They are harder and more durable, and are the best choice for heavier vehicles.
There pad is better if you are a heavier rider. They are better in wet, muddy, or dusty condition than organic pad. They are also a lot better if you are running small rotors or are on a long descend.
They are available in heavier duty towing formulations, for trucks and SUV’s.
They help pull heat away from the center of the braking system
- Still function at higher temperature
- Better performance in wet or condition
- Last longer
- They tend to generate more black dust.
- They are more abrasive and could possible wear through brakes faster.
- Louder when brake
The Organic Brake Pads are made from natural materials like glass and rubber that have been bonded together with high heat resistant resins. They are a much softer brake pad which results in a quieter pad, but one that also wears faster and creates a lot more dust. Organic Brake Pads are best suited for light weight small cars that have limited hard stops. They are a large amount of initial grab.
- More initial bite
- Prevent heat buildup
- Wear quicker
- Not good in wet, muddy, dusty conditions
