3M Science Does Its Part to Help Eliminate a Source of Lead Contamination
According to the EPA, approximately 1.6 million pounds of lead wheel weights are lost in the United States when they fall off during normal driving conditions. These weights can enter our environment in a variety of ways, including being washed into storm sewers, gathered during street cleaning or disposed of in landfills. A growing number of jurisdictions are introducing and passing legislation that bans the use of lead wheel weights. Our lead-free, composite material provides a more environmentally friendly alternative without sacrificing performance. In addition to environmental benefits, our wheel weights also resist the corrosion that is common with lead weights, which enhances overall tire appearance.
