Dear retailers, customers and consumers
Hereby, we have to admit that despite all statement regarding banned importing products with asbestos in our beloved country, Iran, recent test in air quality has shown shocking statistics about existence of asbestos in brake pads using in our country. Every time cars brake, some of this chemical goes into people lungs and puts their health and lives at risk. Because the asbestos from brake pads are dangling into the air and it is not seeable with naked eyes, with each breath it goes into the lungs and it acts like needles there. And it will be indestructible until it causes lung cancer in people.
(When you inhale asbestos fibers, they can become embedded in your lungs and lead to the formation of scar tissue. This scarring is known as asbestosis. The scarring can make it difficult for you to breathe because it prevents your lung tissue from expanding and contracting normally).
Brake pads manufacturer around the world are replacing asbestos with a new material called “ceramic”.
Ceramic brake pads or so-called green pads (eco-pads) are eco-friendly and there is no asbestos on them.
Ingredient for these kinds is Ceramic-Titanium or Ceramic- Carbon.
Advantages of using ceramic pads
It is worth to note that in common pads during the brake operation the brake pads as well as the brake discs will be destroyed. But with these brake pads only the brake pads will be destroyed over time and the discs will be safe.
Elig brake pad is a Japanese brake pad manufacturer and Afagh Khodro is distributing this brake pad in Iran Market.
We are an environmentally friendly company. We are one of the first importers of ceramic brake pads into our beloved country, Iran.
Elig has introduced a new generation of the brake pad with the hope that every Iranian individual will help to expand health in this society.
