NRS Brakes Commits to Eco-Friendly Products, Processes

TORONTO — In an era of heightened environmental consciousness, businesses face increasing expectations to minimize their ecological impact. NRS Brakes has emerged as a trailblazer in this regard, establishing a new standard within the industry by ensuring that all its products are manufactured without the utilization of glue, paint, or toxins.

This noteworthy commitment not only showcases the company’s dedication to producing top-notch goods but also highlights its leadership in sustainability and environmental responsibility.

The traditional process of brake manufacturing often involves the application of glue to bond the friction components. However, this adhesive can emit harmful toxins during both production and disposal, posing risks to the environment and human health. Recognizing these concerns, NRS Brakes opted for an innovative adhesive-free production method, utilizing its acclaimed mechanical attachment system.

Another accomplishment of NRS Brakes is its decision to forgo the use of paint in its products. Conventional painting processes have the potential to release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere, contributing to air and water pollution while also posing health hazards.

NRS Brakes proactively addressed this issue by adopting zinc-coated (galvanized) steel backing plates, which not only offer exceptional corrosion resistance but also eliminate the need for paints containing harmful chemicals.

The environmental benefits of NRS Brakes’ commitment to glue, paint, and toxin-free manufacturing is extensive. By eliminating the use of glue, the company minimizes the release of harmful substances into the environment.

Furthermore, the absence of paints and their associated VOCs ensures that NRS Brakes’ products are not only safe for installation but also environmentally friendly during end-of-life disposal.

NRS Brakes’ decision to eschew glue, paint, and toxins positions the company as a sustainability leader within the automotive industry. By prioritizing the utilization of eco-friendly materials and manufacturing processes, NRS Brakes has established a benchmark for other companies to emulate.

The company’s commitment to responsible production methods aligns with the growing consumer demand for sustainable products and underscores its dedication to the well-being of the planet and future generations.
