Do you need to use brake grease?
Besides, do you need to lubricate brake pads?
Brake Lube ensures noise-free braking and proper system operation. A thin layer of brake lubricant is that is needed. Apply lubricant on caliper pins, clips, edges of the brake pad mounting tabs, and back side of the brake pads if needed. *Do not apply lube on the friction side of the brake pads.
Also, can I use any grease for brake pads? You can just use a regular ceramic based lubricant for the pads. Do not under any circumstance use a copper grease, as this can be detrimental and have a negative effect on the performance of your brakes.
Similarly, you may ask, what grease do I need for brake pads?
Super Lube® Silicone Lubricating Brake Grease can also be used to dampen vibrations between disc brake pads and caliper pistons. It should NOT be applied between the pads and any noise suppression shims. Use it sparingly on the back of a bare pad or between the pad shim and caliper.
What type of grease to use for brake pads?
Silicone-based brake grease is designed for caliper and wheel cylinder assembly work because silicone is an excellent lubricant for rubber and plastic. It is compatible with all rubber compounds including nitrile, teflon, nylon and other synthetic rubbers.
