As an added bonus, REMSA brake pads are unique from an environmental standpoint, as they are free of heavy metals such as, among others, lead, copper and antimony. It is well known that these metals have devastating effects not only on the environment but also on the health of human beings.
Obviously, the handling, usage or disposal of products containing these heavy metals is subject even today to stringent legal regulations which enforce the periodical checks that apply to people exposed to or dealing with products containing heavy metals. With this approach to both health and the environment, REMSA was anticipated to the legislation that banned the use of lead in 2003.
