I came across these two Permatex products in Calgary, hence the French at the bottom. I take it these products are for the pins but would you also use it for the pad ears? Any opinions on Ceramic vs Silicone? Thanks. Enjoy the photos.

Silicone for slide pins. Ceramic for metal to metal.

Spend a little more and get the best of both.

Must have been some high paid marketing genius who came up with that. LOL

Permatex Extreme appears to be a synthetic petroleum oil based formula that just has the ceramic because it is going to melt and separate leaving the solids and a gummy mess behind.

You're better off with a true silicone base grease for all of it, which does not need any metal or ceramic in it as a thickener.

On essentially all brake parts, I use silicone paste that is stable up to 570°F.
It also works as a dielectric, and is the best lube/preservative for weather stripping, hoses, and other rubbery things.

I found the Permatex silicone ceramic in a tube. About $6.00 US.

I know some folks advocate two different lubes, one for the pins and one for the ears and backs. This silicone lube instruction says just one lube is required. Any thoughts? Thanks.
