Shimano Brake Pads

I'm running fulcrum-3s with ultegra brake pads, but I constantly get grinding due to bits of aluminium getting embedded in the pads. After each ride I always clean the pads and pick out the bits, but I seem to be plagued by grinding.

Can anyone recommend any pads? Though the swisstops seem really expensive.

Or am I doing something wrong?

Can the rims be cleaned/polished so that the aluminium is less likely to flake off?
