CarboSlide

Lightweight applications in automotive construction increasingly are made of plastic, which includes highly stressed components such as sliding bearings. Due to the enormously high resulting temperatures, conventional plastic materials are not widely suitable for these kind of applications. It will take the development of a highly mechanically resistant bearing with a low friction value and high thermal stability to create a breakthrough for plastic sliding bearings. For this purpose, the CarboSlide project modified suitable synthetic materials with CNT to improve thermal conductivity and internal lubrication. These new materials may be used in shock absorbers, transmissions, and injection pumps in the future.
