2004 Civic EX (es2)
I was a paper over plastic during the "paper or plastic" era. Why? because plastic comes from oil, and paper is solar powered and makes good kindling.Going forward EBC Brakes will be replacing plastic bubble wrap and foam with recyclable paper for pad packaging as the next step in our 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 sulphides 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% in the UK or USA 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.
