With the quality of our air being increasingly threatened everyday and lands and oceans polluted to no end, we as a society have come together to help find new ways to slow down our destruction of Mother Earth. We continue to improvement our knowledge and technologies allowing us to recycle many materials gone to waste in the past. But recycling is only part of the solution. You can’t stop hazardous waste if you don’t know it’s being produced. With over 250 million passenger vehicles on the road today in the United States alone literally emitting thousands of tons of brake dust into the air and onto the ground, the use and tear of brake pads is more serious than most of us realize. unhealthy dust hazards resulting from brake pads wearing can include the releasing of dust particles of metals into the air and onto the ground such as copper and rule, organic and inorganic fibers and already asbestos from brake pads for specific product requirements and commercial applications. Keep in mind, not only cars and trucks use disc brakes and pads, so do certain mountain bikes, motorcycles, aircraft, and already trains which kick out use debris every time the brake is applied.
The EBC Brake Group is a privately owned company that has been manufacturing brake discs and disc brake pads since 1978 for cars, trucks, motorcycles, A.T.V.’s, 4 wheelers, go karts and mountain bikes. Brakes that have always shared an environmentally conscious characteristic addressing these unseen pollutants. For many of their years in business, EBC has greatly decreased levels of dangerous dust debris from its disc brake and brake pads by simply doing away with toxic elements and chemicals commonly found in the disc brake and brake pads industry. Disc brakes and brake pads manufactured with the utmost respect and preservation of the ecosystem as it’s number one goal. That’s what has made EBC Brakes a leader in disc brakes and brake pads minimizing unhealthy, possibly toxic brake dust debris into the air.
Quality comes standard with all EBC brake pads and disc brake products. Every single batch of pads manufactured by EBC is placed under multiple demanding and uncompromising tests including, but not limited to, destructive sheer testing, density testing, compressibility testing, ultrasonic and sonar testing and already testing of friction levels to always deliver guaranteed perfection with their pads. The consequence- reliable, lasting environmentally friendly pads and products built to last longer with less use keeping hazardous debris released into the air to a minimal.
EBC brake pads come in an assorted range of performance depending on specific utilization and application of the brake pads. For starters, there’s the Greenstuff Sport Series pads consisting of three ranges. The 2000 series for compact sport vehicles and hatchback models. The 6000 series for trucks and SUV’s, and the 7000 series low dust for truck and SUV’s. Since its initial set afloat in 1997, the Greenstuff Series has sold over three million sets of performance automotive brakes and pads all across the globe.
For those of you interested in the street scene, EBC’s Redstuff Series brake pads are designed for vehicles with more than 200Bhp. Redstuff pads will reduce dust already greater while increasing breaking possible by up to 30% compared to some OEM brake systems and factory pads. Less dust from the pads equals less use and tear on the rotors which, in the long run, can almost double the life expectancy of the rotors.
If your going to the race track with enormous horsepower or just towing some really heavy cargo, EBC’s Yellowstuff Series brake pads might be the ticket. These pads make for a great upgrade for truck and SUV brake systems. Yellowstuff pads will however produce similar amounts of dust as OEM style brake pads but with more stopping strength.
Finally, EBC’s Bluestuff Series offers quality race style pads that minimize disc use, harshness and noise. Bluestuff pads take highway safety very seriously and after countless hours of testing, these brakes are some of the best offered on the market today. Not to mention, an inexpensive way to upgrade means performance.
