Sintered v. Non Sintered pad

I'm about to buy my front/rear pads for my '05LT. There's a lot of talk about the differences between the Sintered and Non Sintered. What is the real difference?????

Re: Sintered v. Non Sintered pad

One has metal particles for better heat transfer. The stock pads are sintered for the front and organic for the rear.

Re: Sintered v. Non Sintered pad

With my other bike, I bought some after market disks. Later found out they couldn't use sintered pads. The pads would just glaze over.
The new disks would go so hot the rain would steam off them.
If I have the choice I would stick to sintered whenever possible.

Exclamation Re: Sintered v. Non Sintered pad

I noticed that the rear brakes are quiet when I use non-sintered pad from EBC, and not so with the non-sintered BMW pads.
