    I googled brake disk pad ceramic thermal constant, and got some promising hits. Here's the hit list:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=brake+disk+pad+ceramic+thermal+constant

    The paper in the first hit looks useful, but I think you have to pay for it. You might click through a few of the other hits to see if they have the quantitative thermal info you need. Worst case you could get an old brake pad from your local workshop where they service brakes (I'm sure they have some old ones that they were going to throw away), and do the measurement yourself.

    i mean if someone know the actual type of ceramic i could find its thermal K,
    i know theres different types, so i just want to find the right one...

    thanks for your reply
