Application: Accelerator Friction Pad

Problem

Accelerator systems are now fully electronic “drive by wire”. The electronic housings need to be light weight and strong while the pedal needs to ‘feel’ like a mechanical system.  (Heat range – 40°C to 80°C).

Solution

RTP 1300 Series PPS with glass fiber and PTFE

Benefits

  • The wear compound was successfully developed with the right balance of friction and wear to provide the ‘feel’ required by the OEM.
  • Light weight
  • Excellent dimensional stability

Application: Steering Position Sensor

Problem

There is a part of the steering position assembly where a shaft rotates inside the position sensor with tight tolerances which can lead to unwanted noise and wear.

Solution

RTP 4000 Series PPA with glass fiber and PTFE
