Element3™ PG™ Professional Grade™

Element3™ PG™ Professional Grade™

Delivers industry-leading coverage and braking performance.

Raybestos® Element3™ PG™ Professional Grade™ brake pads are offered in either ceramic or semi-metallic and are guaranteed to match or improve on OE friction performance.

Offering excellent coverage for import and domestic applications, PG™ extends the premium quality you expect from the Element3™ brand to a wider range of vehicles.

With PG™ friction, you can achieve maximum stopping power and safety.


PG™ friction is made with application-specific ceramic or semi-metallic formulations.

  • Semi-metallic applications provide quiet braking and a strong bite for OE-matched or better braking power.
  • Ceramic applications deliver responsive braking that’s clean and silent.

All products are cured so that they are ready to install right out of the box.

Backing Plate

The backing plate on our PG™ brake pads is stamped or shaved depending on the application. This allows for proper movement of the pad within the caliper assembly and helps to reduce:

  • Noise
  • Premature wear
  • Brake pulsation

Slots and Chambers

The slots and chamfers on our PG™ friction match OE design, which allows braking gasses to escape and helps to reduce:

  • Noise
  • Vibration
  • Harshness


PG™ friction comes with a noise-dampening shim, delivering quiet braking and excellent durability.

The shims are fitted to the pad with a spring-locked attachment, ensuring they stay in place for their entire service life.

Electronic Wear Sensors

Attached electronic wear sensors are included when the application calls for it.
