Go copper-free with Bremtec brakes

Bremtec brakes

Bremtec Brakes, a world-class braking brand, now manufactures its brake pads without copper, as part of the company’s move to make it products more environmentally friendly.

“Traditionally, copper is used in the manufacturing of brake pads as it is a durable metal that dissipates heat quickly,” CoolDrive Auto Parts Brake Division Category Manager Steve Kreti said. “The faster the pads dissipate heat, the cooler they run and the better they resist fade. As a result, this improves pedal feel, stopping distance and braking safety.

“As brake pads are used, microscopic brake dust particles enter our environment; and with copper not breaking down, it can settle in our waterways and soil, causing long-term harm.

“With this in mind, for the past few years, the team at Bremtec have been developing and trialling new formulations that still deliver the ultimate braking performance but are manufactured without copper.”
