When looking at the Technical Specs Sheets,
What Specifically do you look at to compare the Coefficient of Friction numbers or properties from one Brand to the next?

For me & family and our driving style, climate and region, I like ceramic with a CoF of FF. That's my favorite and most OE like.

Product data sheets : the words 'ILSAC GFx' (Oops, Differential ,Trans...?) or 'reducing friction' or 'Fuel economy/saving' .
In UOA/VOA, look for ppm's in Moly or Boron or Titanium ,if any .

Some manifactureres will show you a chart plotting friction against temperature - these are very helpful for choosing the right pad.


Cable ties should hold it
