Power Stop, a Chicago-area provider of performance brake systems, says it is taking a proactive approach to the new legislative initiatives to reduce the use of copper and other environmentally harmful elements in its brake pads.

In 2010, both California and Washington passed legislation that will effectively ban the use of copper in brake pads by 2025. Similar bills are actively being proposed in New York, Oregon and Rhode Island.

Power Stop LLC says it has embraced its own copper-free initiative and is committed to supplying 100 percent copper-free brake pads far in advance of the defined timeline stated in California SB 346 and Washington SB 6557. The company says it currently offers performance proven friction materials that are 100 percent compliant with the Jan. 1, 2021, mandates set forth in SB 346 and SB 6557.

According to the company, the copper content in its products are as follows:
• Z16 Evolution Ceramic Brake Pads less than 5 percent
• Z17 Evolution Plus Ceramic Brake Pads w/Hardware less than 5 percent
• PM18 Posi-Mold Semi-Metallic Brake Pads Copper-Free
• Z26 Extreme Performance Copper-Free Ceramic Brake Pads Copper-Free
• Z36 Truck & Tow Copper-Free Ceramic Brake Pads Copper-Free
• Z37 Top Cop Copper-Free Ceramic Brake Pads Copper-Free
