brake anti-squeal spray

I've installed new pads on a car and after about 150 miles they are squaling. Is there spray that I can spray on rotors to get rid of squeal?

Most auto parts stores sell a compound that smears on the backside of the pad. Corrects squeal problems.

Or buy quality pads instead of the house brand.

The only pads I have ever put on any of my cars were either Bendix or Raybestos, never had a squeal problem with either. I do know that some bi-metallic pads will do this however.

really depends on compound. I do not like semi-metallic for any of my cars. they're too agressive and seem to squeak a lot.

Make sure you used the correct shims and grease behind the pads.
DONT SPRAY ANYTHING ON THE ROTORS.
I agree with Vince, quality pads dont squeal.
We generally use Wagner Thermo Quiets or OEM Pads. No come backs.
Also did you change or resurface the rotors. Smooth rotors will aslo cause a squeal with some pads

didn't turn rotors, they were fine. I think pads are just wearing in and squeal should go away after theyre completely burnished
