During the 20-country journey, the company will be showcasing some of the main benefits of its plastic bearings, which include:
- Increased wear resistance to tribologically optimized plastic compound, designed to withstand high stresses.
- Resistance to dirt, oil, and chemicals, pressure resistance and shock absorption, all of which make them good choices for use in the chassis, engine compartment and gearbox.
- A corrosion-free, self-lubricating and silent operation, which also makes them suitable for door hinges and other moving parts.
- Lower weight than metal bearings, which can contribute to a vehicle’s overall lightness, reducing fuel consumption.
