The compressor is the heart of an Air Conditioning unit. Within the compressor, a bearing provides a controlled coefficient of friction surface between a rotating shaft and its housing.
We work alongside manufacturers to optimise the bearing in the Air Conditioner's compressor, creating NORGLIDE® Bearings with a unique product structure using polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), which has the lowest coefficient of friction of all known solid materials.
The PTFE layer compensates for any misalignment during fitting, enabling a Perfect Fit every time. By choosing Saint-Gobain, we can work with you to optimise the assembly process and cut manufacturing time and costs.
