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).
RTP 1300 Series PPS with glass fiber and PTFE
The wear compound was successfully developed with the right balance of friction and wear to provide the ‘feel’ required by the OEM.
Excellent dimensional stability
Application: Steering Position Sensor
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.
RTP 4000 Series PPA with glass fiber and PTFE
Reduced noise (squeaking)
Application: Transmission Seals & Washers
Government regulation for fuel efficiency is driving the need for higher performance wear compounds in the power-train. The industry is also trying to increase efficiency & reduce weight to increase fuel economy. This application operates in transmission fluid with high PV.
RTP 2200 Series with Ultra Wear additives
Eliminates the need to machine a part from a stock form
Significant reduction in manufacturing cost
Reduced coefficient of friction
Application: HVAC Gears
Due to extreme temperature changes (-400c to 800c) gears were creating excessive noise leading to warranty issues.
RTP 200 series and 800 series with glass fiber and PTFE.
