EBC Brakes has always been at the forefront of awareness and protection of its staff’s well being and that of its consumers and the environment.

EBC Brakes was the pioneer of the Ecopad, a brake pad made entirely of organic components such as hemp fibre and cashew nut husk oil, creating a brake material for trains.

Then EBC Brakes went on to be the first (and probably still the only) brake manufacturer with a ZERO sulfides policy, eliminating nasty ingredients such as Antimony from all of its products.

Lead is long gone, and asbestos was never used in EBC Brakes products.

EBC Brakes has now completed the removal of all copper from its brake blends, another world first.

Recently the Bristol manufacturing plant enjoyed a further upgrade with new low energy extraction and air cleaning systems to release nothing but warm air into the environment and provide the healthiest workplace for its valued staff.
