BEDFORD PARK, Ill., Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Power Stop, LLC, an innovator of leading edge technology for performance brake systems says that removing copper and any other harmful substances from brake pad friction material is the right thing to do.
Many environmentalist and state law makers have combined forces to ban the use of copper in brake pads due to its negative impact on the environment and aquatic life. In fact both California and Washington passed legislation in 2010 that will effectively ban the use of copper in brake pads by 2025. Similar bills are actively being proposed in New York, Oregon and Rhode Island's state legislatures.
Power Stop, LLC has proactively embraced its own Copper-Free Initiative and is committed to supplying 100% Copper-Free Brake Pads far in advance of the defined timeline stated in California SB 346 and Washington SB 6557. Power Stop, LLC currently offers performance proven friction materials that are 100% compliant with the January 1, 2021 mandates set forth in SB 346 and SB 6557.
