Saint-Gobain works closely with Automotive design engineers to design solutions which offer consitent controlled friction between mating components to reduce wear and tear and protect against corrosion, vibration and mishandling.
A car is more than likely the second most expensive investment a person can make, and consumers expect that they are putting their cash into something that will last.
Factors such as corrosion, vibration and mishandling can all shorten the life of automotive applications. Engineers today must build in long life elements into their system, guarding against corrosion which looks unsightly and affects performance and compensate for mishandling by the end user. Saint-Gobain’s NORGLIDE® Bearings and RENCOL® Tolerance Rings ensure that engineers can develop systems which maintain their function and perform consistently over time.
