Developments in Thermal Management and Plastic Powertrain Components – Sponsor Showcase: W.L. Gore & Associates
Dynamic seals made with our new GORE® Low Friction Film enable lower torque and smaller packaging, for more cost-competitive, energy-efficient components. Seals with our Film deliver the best of both worlds: all the elasticity and sealability of elastomer with the added benefits of lower friction and lower wear, thanks to our durable graphite-filled ePTFE membrane. This highly-conformable membrane creates a strong and permanent mechanical bond with the elastomer’s sealing surface, for longer seal life. If you want to improve fuel economy, EV range or component reliability…or reduce component complexity, size, power consumption or cost, dynamic seals with GORE® Low Friction Film can give you the competitive edge you need.
