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.

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

They have a brush inside so you can apply to the surface of the rotor before installing the caliper. This allows the assembly to slide on easier and the pads to break in properly. Its break in lube and rotor lubricant all in one bottle.

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.

Be better off putting some emoji's on that post, lest someone read it, try it, and spear something with a 2 ton car. (No, putting grease on a rotor surface is not good, in any way.)
