A new grease reduces friction and helps cut fuel consumption

9SKF has launched a new lubrication solution for hub bearing units (HBUs) that reduces friction by as much as 9% compared to standard solutions while maintaining the same bearing performance. This low friction grease meets the market need to reduce friction in wheel bearing units, cutting both CO2 emissions and fuel consumption to improve total vehicle efficiency. The low friction grease has been developed to a new chemical formula, with an optimised ratio between friction modifier and anti-wear additives and it is fully compatible with the bearing components. The low friction grease contributes to reduce the friction maintaining the same bearing performance in terms of life, stiffness, sealing, false brinelling.
