Wagner ThermoQuiet CeramicNXT brake pads with OE21 technology are the aftermarket’s first full-line offering of certified 2021-compliant low-copper formulations. Recent legislation in California and Washington state mandates that copper content be reduced to less than 5 percent (“Low Copper”) by 2021 and less than 0.5 percent (“Zero Copper”) by 2025.
“Wagner OE21 formulations deliver the best overall friction performance ever offered in a Wagner ThermoQuiet pad,” said Christopher Battershell, director, braking, North America, Federal-Mogul Vehicle Components segment. “This exciting new technology raises the bar for all replacement ceramic brake pads for today’s foreign-nameplate and domestic models.”
