Brake Squeal - EEEeeeeee!!!

I have the big AMG 6 pot front calipers on my 55 and the brakes squeal at very low speeds. It's a bit embarrassing under normal driving where your fancy sports car sounds like a double decker bus! Seems to be a very common issue. If I do some brake bedding it will go away for a while but returns fairly soon. Also getting them hot stops it temporarily. New proper Brembo discs and pads were fitted a few hundred miles ago. I am going to check if the pads have had and anti-squeal paste applied. I have read that AMG only suggest applying the paste in very specific areas and using only the proper Mercedes paste. Would anyone have access to the technical documents that might detail this?

Ceramic grease is the most up to date material. I would expect the MB stuff to be their version of that.
