Elastomeric compound

K16 elastomeric compound from Federal-Mogul improves the company’s technology in UNIPISTON-bonded hydraulic clutch pistons while providing reductions in CO2 emissions and natural gas consumption for manufacturing operations. Believed to be the first company to develop such a system for manufacturing high-performance rubber products, Federal-Mogul's UNIPISTON-bonded pistons convert hydraulic pressure into the mechanical force needed to engage clutch packs in automatic and dual-clutch transmissions. Federal-Mogul's first application of the molding technique eliminates the oven post-cure process from the production of the elastomeric seals used in its UNIPISTON products. By eliminating the oven post-cure process, Federal-Mogul calculates that the annual natural gas consumption at its Frankfort, IN, plant alone will decrease by 40 billion BTUs and prevent nearly 2000 ton (1814 t) of COemissions from entering the atmosphere annually.
