Better Friction Materials for Dependable, Safe Stopping Power

With some brake pads on the market you have to give up stopping power for quiet braking - but not with Duralast Gold. New friction formulas utilizing superior base components have been developed for quieter, safe stops and long life.

  • Premium grade carbon for longer brake life
  • High-quality steel fibers to minimize wear and deliver greater stopping power
  • Choice aramid fibers dampen noise vibration and reduce noise across a wide frequency spectrum

These friction blocks match the original formulas type by application, so if your original brakes used a semi-metallic pad, so does Duralast!

Shims Redesigned for Less Vibration To Eliminate Noise

Brake noise is a result of vibration. Duralast Gold's clever design allows for greater vibration control to cancel noise at the source. More application specific shims have been added to the line up. These shims may offer:

  • Peel-away adhesive layers
  • Textured nitrile rubber
  • Rust resistant steel or acrylic adhesive

All of these configurations are based on the original shim styles and offer greater vibration dampening for quieter performance.

Quieter Than Ever - Tested and Proven

In recent tests to real world driving conditions, Duralast Gold pads were as quiet or quieter than the top four competitors pads. And, they offered significantly longer wear life than any of the competition tested.

Competition Pad Life Test & Competition Noise Test

Third-party tested for nine of the noisiest OE applications and against the leading competition to ensure maximum noise control and superior wear life.
