Default What is the difference between the 3 types of brake pads

What pads are good to use? There are 3 grades available ceramic, semi-metallic and organic. What is the difference between the 3? I know semi-metallic, there will be a lot of brake dust versus ceramic but what else is the difference between using the 3 types? Are all 3 made just about with the same material? Of the 3, which pads are soft and hard?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The system was designed for ceramic. You get much longer pad and rotor service life and minimal dust.
