Product Description


One of the more common inquiries we get about brake pads on Volvos is, "How do I get rid of the dust?" While you'll never eliminate brake dust completely, Akebono EURO ceramic pads offer a great solution to the excessive dusting of Volvo OEM brake pads. 

With many pads, moving to a denser material like ceramic can be prone to brake squeal, poor cold pad performance and other trade offs. We've installed Akebono EURO pad sets on several Volvos and have been more than pleased with the results. Good cold performance, great resistance to brake fade and best of all -- almost no brake dust on the wheels! 

Akebono EURO Ultra-Premium brake pads provide excellent vehicle control and response performance. Akebono uses advanced ceramic brake pad technology allows their “EURO” pad line to provide excellent stopping power and virtually eliminating brake dust. 

For over twenty years, Akebono Ceramic Technology (ACT) has been the original equipment (OE) standard on many of North America’s passenger cars, light trucks, and SUVs and has set the benchmark for ceramic pads used in OE vehicle production. Most importantly, European OE manufacturers now request Akebono products for their North American vehicles. Akebono’s Aftermarket disc pads contain the same materials, engineering, quality standards, and advanced technologies used to create their OE ceramic brake pads.
