Brake dust free brake pads

Hey guys, I spoke to someone from turner Motorsport who was telling me about these brake pads that significantly eliminate brake dust.

What do you guys know about this and what's your impression/experience with them if you've ever used them? Thanks

"These pads" being which pads?

Minimizing dust, sure. Eliminating dust, never.

FWIW, a shop recommended that I use Akebono "low dust" pads to replace BMW OEM pads on my dad's 7'er. Tried them. IMO they are awful.
1) VERY LITTLE bite, 2) squeak at low speeds.

I would prefer dust to no bite.

If you can find a pad that still has good bite with less dust... by all means... but understand there is likely a tradeoff...

+1

There is no such thing as dust free pads. And there is always that trade-off

I've heard carbon ceramic pads have very little dust, maybe you can try these :
