  • Towards green braking, a new challenge related to copper-free materials

Towards green braking

Braking-system development is currently facing a new challenge related to the use of copper-free materials. US regulations are driving the rest of the world towards a definitive reduction of copper in brake-pad compounds, mainly for environmental reasons.
