Ferodo Brake Pads backing

Just installed front brake hoses and pads on the Spit6 (Ferodo).
I looked at the back of the pads a long time before sliding them in.
They seemed to have a plastic film over them with maybe a jell under it. I question if this is a anti squeal compound that will melt in place the first time the brakes heat up?
Nice fit, just different to others I have put in. I generally just add my on anti squeal.

I know what you mean. I've seen that coating on my other car's brakes.

I use brake lube anyway.

Ok, this may seem odd, but it works for me. Took a cereal box, cut a matching shape of the back of pad. No noise and interesting that it never is affected by water ( seems to be pretty well isolated with stock wheels).

Tip from the old BAP GEON parts counter guy about 30+ years ago.

Thanks Doug and Mike.
I do have the thin anti squeal plates and they have worked fine for me over the last 50 or so years.
I have heard of the cardboard trick, just never had that much problem.
I wish I could say I'll give these a try soon, but the painting will be next spring.
