Beginning January 1, 2014 in California and January 2015 in Washington state, copper and other hazardous substances must be phased out of OEM and replacement brake pads and shoes. By 2021, copper must be reduced to 5% or less of total material content by weight, and to just 0.5% or less by 2025.Wagner® ThermoQuiet CeramicNXT with Wagner OE21™ technology is 2021 compliant today!As the #1 global manufacturer of friction for the total OE and replacement market, Wagner Brake has taken the lead in developing eco-friendly formulations that also provide across-the-board improvements in overall brake pad performance.
