Application: Accelerator Friction Pad


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.
  • Light weight
  • Excellent dimensional stability
