One brilliant feature of black stuff pads is their ability to completely eliminate brake judder and these pads will actually COMPENSATE for mild brake judder after 300-400 miles of use.

Green stuff are designed for premium street driving offering better brake effect at loads and speed. Green stuff has a high initial brake effect and gives drivers confidence from first application of the brake pedal [but they do need to get up to temp]. There is no such thing as a NO DUST pad. The very nature of how a brake works requires that some dust be generated to avoid rotor vibration (shimmying). The EBC pad creates less dust and dust is more easily washed off than most.

Green stuff is the name coined to describe our current sport automotive pad. A high friction Aramid based organic pad with very low metallic content that comes on strong from first application of the brake pedal, without disc damage and minimal brake dust. Recommended for road use and hill climb only."

Thanks for the info
