Switch between carbon and aluminum rims without switching brake pads

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Does a pad exist that doesn't pick up aluminum chunks, so one can swap between their aluminum training wheels and carbon racing wheels without needing to also exchange the brake pads?

Nevermind. I just didn't know what to search for initially. Apparently the Swiss Stop Yellow King makes it possible. Need to read a LOT of testimonials before I take the plunge.
