Did you reach out and ask any of the manufacturers what their friction coefficients (μ/Mu) were? The info is there, but wondering if that's something a manufacturer would share. It would provide more science to the testing. My experience with Shimano pads can be summed up thusly: sintered for everything. I've found their semi mets to become extremely noisy when it's cold and/or wet out, regardless of brake. I even replaced the stock pads in my TRP Spyre brakes with Shimano sintered and the power increased noticeably. They do get noisy when cold until they heat up, but that's worth it compared to the honking from the semis.
