Sept. 30, 2013—Federal-Mogul Corporation and its Wagner Brake brand recently released a new line of environmentally friendly low-copper brake pads. Federal-Mogul’s Eco-Friction pads are the first full line offering 2021-compliant low-copper formulations.

“We have taken the lead in developing eco-friendly formulations that also provide improvements in overall brake pad performance,” said Martin Hendricks, vice president and general manager of braking of the Federal-Mogul Vehicle Components segment.

Recent legislation in California and Washington State has mandated that copper content in friction formulations be reduced below 5 percent (low-copper) by 2021.
