We work best in partnership with designers and engineers to develop and test new concepts and products, ensuring that a competitive advantage is gained from reliable components.
Common requirements of the motorsport sector include rubber to PTFE (for low-friction), rubber to metal, anti-vibration products, vehicle seals and gaskets, along with attributes such as tyre rubber exclusion, dust exclusion and reduced weight.
One of our key areas of expertise is in working with our customers to establish the best specification to ensure performance; materials can be developed to meet your needs. High temperature, high tear strength and lightweight materials have been, and continue to be, developed.
We supply into the motorsport sector at all levels of supply chain, including companies specifically dedicated to research and development, suppliers of engines, gearboxes, chassis, electronic components, hosing, composites, suspensions, shock absorbers and springs.
Formula 1, WRC, BTCC, WTCC, LMP1, MotoGP, SBK and Motocross are among the series that we support. We offer a mobile roadshow/training session for entry-level designers into the industry to empower them to make decisions best suited to the application when working with rubber materials.
Products like CV boots are critical to the performance of vehicles, and are a prime candidate for non-linear FEA. If you want to find out the types of analysis used, which areas it will help to improve and when to undertake FEA on CV boots, read our downloadable PDF.
