Not a model but... Kitchen mixer cold tap is ceramic type and drips - but only if water pressure is low due to washing machine or garden hose. Sometimes happens anyway in early morning.
Have fitted new module (brass+ceramic+plastic stuff) but after about 2 months it starts again. Have other ceramic taps in house with no/few problems. Have tried silicone grease - works for about 2 weeks. Ceramic elements do seem slightly scored but there seems some variation in new elements types from you know where - so easier to buy new unit.
Any ideas short of a new mixer (PIA getting old one out).

When you took the module out did check for rubbish in the tap base?

Since this is the cold water tap it could well be that the incoming water contains "particles" that are water mains born and need to be filtered out.
