Saint-Gobain works closely with Automotive design engineers to design solutions which offer consistent controlled friction between mating components to reduce wear and tear and protect against corrosion, vibration and mishandling.
Wear and misuse can adversely affect how a product performs and can lead to malfunction, affecting the experience for end users and damaging brands. Controlling friction can reduce wear on a product and ensure it functions effectively time and again, delivering a product that users can trust.
Customers expect products that are reliable and built to last. By introducing elements designed to guard against corrosion and compensate for any mishandling by the end user, products can maintain their function and perform consistently over time.
