Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

UK to include Spicer non-asbestos organic clutch friction material in its standard specification.

The Spicer 355mm twinplate clutch is fitted as standard to the Iveco Ford Cargo • 6x4 with Cummins C-Series engine, which will now be supplied with the new friction facings. Non-asbestos friction materials have been compulsory in the USA since January 1983, and similar requirements are expected in the UK.

Spicer says that the change to a non-asbestos facing material was not easy, as early attempts were expensive and relatively short-lived.

But now the company reckons it has an organic material that compares favourably with asbestos-based friction materials under anything but the most severe conditions.
