Bremtec Brakes Brake Pads Now Copper-Free

11 Oct, 2023

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

“Traditionally, copper is used in the manufacturing of brake pads as it is a durable metal that dissipates heat quickly. 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,” said Steve Kreti, Category Manager – Brake Division at CoolDrive Auto Parts.

“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.”

Bremtec Brakes new copper-free brake pads will soon be launched across the range, and available from CoolDrive Auto Parts.
