PQ PRO Disc Brake Pads

PQ PRO Disc Brake Pads

This innovative and advanced friction line has been developed with the professional technician in mind and addresses key service issues that plague many of today’s professional service technicians and their customers, such as brake fade, weak braking response, and excessive noise.  

In developing PQ PRO Disc Brake Pads, Centric Parts combined its legendary first-to-market brake friction development capabilities with cutting edge technology enhancements. PQ PRO is a brake pad line that offers confidence and piece of mind to the technician and delivers safety and comfort to the customer.

Restores Original Performance

PQ PRO features application-specific friction compounds engineered to match or exceed original performance specifications, to ensure reliable stopping power. The pads are enhanced with the addition of a Mu500 friction coating that provides an immediate increase in Mu (stopping power) right out of the box. Advanced multi-layer shims are employed to eliminate noise. Specifically designed hardware is included with each brake pad set to guarantee full restoration of brake system performance, extend service life, and eliminate noise caused by pad vibration. Additionally; Opti-Check Early Warning System provides visual indication of pad service life.

Roadside Assistance

Every set of PQ PRO Brake Pads comes with the 12 Months of “Centric Assured” roadside assistance. If anything, and we mean anything, prevents your car from getting to your destination, Centric Parts will reimburse you for roadside assistance services up to $100. We are confident that PQ PRO will deliver peace of mind for whatever the road may bring.

Centric Premium Metallic Brake Pads

Centric Premium Metallic Brake Pads

Pad vibration is the number one cause of noise or "squealing" associated with braking. To prevent this vibration and eliminate noise, Centric Premium Brake Pads are 100% shimmed. Correct fit of the brake pad in the caliper also works to prevent vibration and noise. Centric Premium Brake Pads have precision cut, or shaved backing plates ensuring proper fit in the caliper body, and feature O.E. style chamfers and gas slots, further preventing pad vibration and noise. Gas slots in the friction material work to improve heat dissipation and eliminate issues with out gassing. All Centric Parts Premium Brake Pads come installation-ready with O.E. style wear sensors attached. 

Product Details

  • Formulated for longer wear.
  • High noise abatement.

Centric Premium Ceramic Brake Pads

Centric Premium Ceramic Brake Pads

Centric Parts Premium Ceramic Brake Pads feature Positive Mold technology. This O.E. process uses extreme pressure to attach the friction material to the backing plate and provides a more consistent friction material density throughout the life time of the brake pad. Centric Parts Premium Ceramic Brake Pads are scorched to remove impurities left from the manufacturing process in the friction material. Scorching increases friction levels right out of the box and enhances initial pad/rotor bed-in.
