Greater efficiency and less friction in roller bearings

Rolling bearings with high mechanical property retention and excellent resistance to wear and friction? No problem, with our high heat resistant Stanyl® polyamide 46, now being used successfully by leading industry name, Schaeffler Group

Stanyl is now enabling a new generation of high efficiency rolling bearings by reducing the high sliding friction traditionally associated with this key component.

Reduce drag torque in roller bearings

Through a unique set of thermal, mechanical and wear resistant properties, this unique automotive plastic reduces both drag torque and Coefficient of Friction compared to traditional tapered roller bearings. The result: Longer service life (due to less heat being generated) and an increase in fuel economy of 1.5%. Good for people, planet and profit.

High performance roller bearings with Stanyl

Schaeffler Group is in agreement. Says Michael Claassen, Director of Engineering for Schaeffler Automotive Chassis Systems Group: “The tandem is a good example of Schaeffler’s path forward for high efficiency bearings. The Tandem delivers a significant improvement in overall efficiency when compared to traditional tapered roller bearings.
