Inroble Launches Low-Copper Brakes for the Canadian Market

Inroble has introduced a full lineup of 2021 low-copper certified brake pads. 


Inroble has introduced a full lineup of 2021 low-copper certified brake pads. 

Copper is a highly toxic substance and many brake pads in the market contain over 20 per cent of copper. As brake pads wear, copper and other metal contents are deposited on highways and washed into our rivers and lakes. Inroble Premium Plus brake pads have no hazardous metals only containing low amounts of copper (less than five per cent).  This is a year 2021 requirement in California and the State of Washington. Although this law has not yet been enforced in Canada, Inroble will not disregard the importance of preserving our environment.  

“We cannot just reduce the copper contents of an existing brake pad and make it low-copper. If we do that, it will destroy the balance of the formulation, it will create problems with noise, fade and wear. With years of research, Inroble have found copper replacement substances that surpass the benefits of copper for our Premium Plus formulations,” said Michael Zhao, vice-president of Sales and Marketing

With extensive testing by Inroble engineers, Premium Plus brake pads are designed to meet the needs of specific vehicle applications. Those include domestic, import, European and full size trucks and SUVs.
