NRS Brakes highlights environment-friendly brake pads

NRS Brakes says NRS galvanized brake pads are more environmentally friendly than the competition due to less brake dust generated. Not only that corrosion resistant, contributing to a longer life on the vehicle and fewer brake pads in landfills.

NRS says brake dust accounts for 20% of all vehicle-generated pollutants. Brakes require friction to operate, but brake pads rubbing against rotors creates brake dust–extremely small metal particles that impact the air and soil. NRS galvanized brake pads are made with a premium friction material that produces less brake dust than traditional brake pads. They are also free of copper and lead, which can cause greater health and environmental consequences.

The company says the brake pads also prevent corrosion with zinc-plating technology, leading to longer brake pad life. NRS also says its patented mechanical brake pad attachment ensures that the engineered layers of the brake pad do not separate over time or crumble from corrosion.
