This part is not an emissions-related part and therefore can be used on Emission Controlled Vehicles.
StopTech PosiQuiet Brake Pads 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. StopTech PosiQuiet Brake Pads 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 addition to these features StopTech has added a scorching process to all of its PosiQuiet Brake Pads. This scorching process forces any impurities out of the friction material and pre-burnishes the pads to greatly accelerate the break-in process. Scorching raises initial cold effectiveness, stabilizes friction levels right out of the box, provides consistent performance across the entire operating range.
PosiQuiet Semi-Metallic pads offer bite levels similar to or greater than OEM formulas with reduced levels of noise and dust. Well suited to performance street driving under all weather conditions.
