Low Dust Street Pad for Brembos - What options are available out there?

Guys I'm looking for a low dust pad for my day-to-day street driving.

I was interested in the Akebono pads which are practically dustless, but still a very-capable pad for street driving. Evidently though, Akebonos are not available for Brembo Applications. . I'm looking for something similar that would be available on Brembos. Can anyone suggest a good low-dust pad option for Brembo Calipers?

Again, these are only for day-to-day street use. For tracking, I'll be using a set of dedicated track pads. Relevantly the rotor sizes would be 365 front/ 345 rear rotors.

Any suggestions from the brake pros out there would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks everyone,

Depending on the size of your calipers/rotors, you may want to consider either the Brembo ST04 (street compound) ceramic pads or HP2000 street compound. They are the lower dust options specified by Brembo.
