Ceramic brakes

I'm doing the front brakes on my truck and had everything back together and went to bleed the brakes and went to turn the bleeder valve and it snapped off so i had to go get a new caliper then when i got back i went to put fluid in it and couldnt find my cap the wind blew it away so after everything i couldn't finnish because of the cap i had to dive the dodge work truck home

but any ways i was wanting to know is there a break in for the Ceramic pads they didnt say anything on the box or in it just wanted to know thanks

Put ceramic on the wife's 4runner. Just took it easy for the first 50 brake applications. They were great after twenty minutes driving.

I've never "broken in" a single set of pads in my life.

I just put pads on and drive. My neighbor does this "bed in" process on his Cady.. But he is lie that about everything. Told him I just ran some emery paper over the disks
and slapped on some pads.. He drove off to do his "bed in".. Must be some race car
or something... If he has a PSD he would change the HPOP oil too.

I don't care for ceramic pads myself, but the way I break in pads is 20 mph, lay on the brakes, then 35, then 50, and the final about 60-65mph, allow time for cooling in between. This is also how Hawks suggests break in, which are the pads I use!!
