Wagner ThermoQuiet Ceramic Rear Brake Pads for Cadillac ATS

Premium Wagner ThermoQuiet Ceramic brake pads from Federal-Mogul are the first replacement rear brake pads available in the aftermarket for 2013 Cadillac ATS models. ThermoQuiet Ceramic pads – representing the next generation of automotive ceramic friction technology – are now also available for popular late-model Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen passenger vehicles. The Wagner ThermoQuiet product line covers more than 99 percent of the North American passenger vehicle population.

The following new ThermoQuiet Ceramic pad sets are available through leading brake products distributors:

  • QC1659           2013 Cadillac ATS (rear)
  • QC768B           2013 Volkswagen Jetta (front)
  • QC1629           2012 Mercedes-Benz ML350 (front)

ThermoQuiet Ceramic brake pads feature Federal-Mogul’s next-generation proprietary ceramic formulations and Dynamic Noise Absorptio technology, which is integrated into the brake pad to target and absorb vibration at the point of contact for quieter braking. In addition, these formulations feature thermal-sensitive properties that adapt to the wide range of temperatures encountered during everyday driving conditions to ensure superior stopping performance.

“ThermoQuiet Ceramic is the latest in ceramic formulation technology, which addresses the challenges and increased demands of today’s braking systems,” said Walt Keating, senior product manager, North American friction, Federal-Mogul. “These pads are developed through Federal-Mogul’s extensive OE insight and are engineered to offer optimum performance in any driving condition.”
