Propshaft boot

  • 29-Sep-2010 11:16 EDT


The propshaft boot with integrated splash protection designed by ContiTech Vibration Control protects the bearings of the propshaft. The boots not only protect from water and dirt, but they also offer a long service life. The system can be delivered preassembled, in individual parts, and also with clamps. It is secured over the greased propshaft joint on both sides with clamps. The system is made of two different materials, depending on what is required: boots made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) are characterized by their good abrasion resistance; thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) is a particularly heat-resistant and high-quality material used when ambient conditions are harsh. Propshaft boots, which are mounted close to the catalytic converter, are subjected to high temperatures and are thus made of heat-resistant TPEs. The corresponding splash protection disc can be made of fiberglass-reinforced polyamide for preassembly.
