New SAE International Presentation Explores Reducing Automotive Noise Through Anti-Friction Coatings
WARRENDALE, Pa., June 3, 2016 - SAE International offers a new webinar presentation that studies anti-friction coatings (AFCs) as a preventive solution to reduce certain types of automotive component noise.
Sponsored by Dow Corning, “Anti-Friction Coatings: How to Eliminate Noise for the Life of Interior Plastic Components” will be held Thursday, June 9, 2016, at 10 a.m. U.S. EDT.
Modern passenger cars are equipped with sophisticated measures to avoid propagation of noise from the engine and gearboxes into the passenger compartment, which creates a very comfortable environment for car occupants. On the other hand, this enables “new noises” to become audible – in particular, those generated by the sliding of plastic components made of thermoplastics having poor affinity under the tribological aspect.
This 30-minute Webinar will explore AFCs as a preventive solution to reduce certain types of automotive component noise, offering service-life noise protection, compatibility with several plastics, and ease of integration into existing production lines. The Webinar also will explain how AFCs can reduce such noises by reducing the coefficient of friction and stick-slip phenomena among mating surfaces.
Presenter for the Webinar will be:
- Vittorio Clerici, Senior Application Engineering and Technical Service Specialist, Dow Corning
