PINEHAME, U.K. — Replacing plastic bubble wrap and foam with recyclable paper for disc and pad packaging is the next step for EBC in its contribution to the environment.

Never having used any dangerous fibers EBC are already compliant with the new rules banning copper from automotive brakes EBC also removed several years ago all traces of sulfides still present in many competitor materials. AsO3, as it is known, is a nasty heavy metal that we have replaced with bio-degradable non-toxic materials.

EBC Brakes are made 100 percent in the U.K. or U.S. from a range of several hundred blends of materials that conform to every mandatory health regulation and more.

Soon all EBC brake rotors will be boxed for shipment in fully recyclable cartons containing no varnish or laminated papers to make them easily recyclable.

Not just the best brakes out there but lots of forward-thinking going on for our futures.
