Greater Efficiency for Transmission Components

Product Announcement from Victrex plc.

Greater Efficiency for Transmission Components-Image

Cost-effective VICTREX® PEEK polymer components enable greater fuel efficiency, durability and driving comfort.

The automotive industry is globally driven by environmental and safety standards and requires increased longevity due to extended warranty and lower costs of production. Consumers are demanding less frequent maintenance, more comfortable driving experiences, and better fuel economy, with no deterioration in performance.

The reduction of the vehicle weight, driven by the desire for lower CO2 emissions and improved mileage, results into miniaturization of components and functional integration which are at the forefront of the automotive industry's efforts.

Subsequently OEMs are forced to identify materials that provide enhanced performance and efficiency, offer high specific strength and lower weight and enable more economic component solutions.

For more than three decades, Victrex has collaborated with innovative automotive companies to deliver high performance thermoplastic solutions. We listen to your needs and work with you to push boundaries and improve vehicle performance.

Visit our website to learn how you can achieve:

  • up to 44% less friction with VICTREX WG polymer-based seals and thrust washers
  • 2% enhanced fuel efficiency by specifying VICTREX PEEK to combine vacuum and oil pump functions
  • 50% (3dB) reduced NVH for VICTREX PEEK gears vs. metal gears
