More Reliable Seals, More Reliable Cars
The future of dynamic seals starts with GORE® Low Friction Film
Dynamic seals in your car’s valves, shafts and motors are always moving. That creates friction, which can cause seals to leak or wear out, bringing those components to a grinding halt. Seals with less friction, longer life and better tightness would enable smaller, simpler components that consume less power, provide better fuel economy and more reliability.
That’s what new GORE® Low Friction Film can offer.
