Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics’ Norglide yoke bearing is designed to reduce friction for automotive steering applications and lower CO2 emissions. The polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) material in combination with the bearing geometry improves automobile steering performance with low friction for the life of the vehicle. Its arched shape—a modified gothic arch—evenly distributes load over the area of the bearing to improve the wear resistance and life cycle of the steering system. The thickness of the PTFE blend featured in the yoke bearing further extends its life and reduces NVH. With the bearing's thickness and homogeneous composition, it can provide lower friction over life, meaning that electric power steering motors can be designed with smaller loads in mind.
