Automotive Tribology

With over 600 million passenger cars in the world, automotive tribology plays an integral part of our everyday lives.

The moving parts of engines, oil pumps and valves are all subject to friction, lubrication and wear. By understanding these it is possible to improve the performance and economy of engines while reducing their environmental impact; all of which makes automotive tribology essential for the car owner whether they use theirs to pick up shopping or to time trial at Silverstone.

"Piston ring friction alone uses up 3.6p per litre of fuel. We have the means to reduce that friction."
