Federal Mogul?s Innovative IROXTM Bearing Shell Design Enables Fuel Consumption and CO2 Reduction by Increasing Reliability of High-Output, Hybrid and Stop-Start Engines   Print  
The IROX? bearing overlay can help increase the life of crankshafts and bearing shells by more than five times in more extreme applications, such as direct-injected engines and engines with stop-start systems. Tuesday, 23rd March 2010

New IROXTM coating increases bearing durability by more than five times

Southfield, Michigan, March 23, 2010… Federal-Mogul Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML) has expanded the performance capabilities of engine bearings by developing an innovative polymer coated bearing shell that can reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by withstanding mechanical loads produced by heavily boosted engines.  Called IROX™, the new technology addresses the lubrication challenges associated with frequent engine re-starts found in hybrid and other future stop-start engines by protecting both the crankshaft and the bearing shells from damage where metal-to-metal contact would otherwise occur.  It is estimated that the IROX bearing overlay can help increase the life of crankshafts and bearing shells by more than five times in more extreme applications, such as direct-injected engines and engines with stop-start systems.
