LESS – Low Emission Sealing Solutions

Sealing technology opens up enormous potential for making sustainable contributions to the mobility of today and tomorrow. In our LESS Initiative (Low Emission Sealing Solutions), we combine product innovations focused on reducing friction, emissions, installation spaces, and weights. Sealing solutions for engines, transmissions, and alternative powertrains benefit from our unique material expertise.

LESS – HIGHER EFFICIENCY FOR LOWER EMISSIONS

Achieving sustainable growth by concentrating on “less”

Friction reduction

Reibungsreduktion

In terms of technology, friction-minimized seals pave the way for the automobile of tomorrow. Less friction means less fuel consumption and lower emissions. With the Levitex, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies even comes very close to the dream of the frictionless seal.

Weight reduction

Gewichtsreduktion

Weight reduction is becoming increasingly important, especially through the substitution of metal components with plastics components. Lightweight construction opens up new design opportunities, example for the integration of various functions in a single component. In this regard, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies makes use of the advantages of two- and multi-component injection molding.

Emissions reduction

Emissionsreduzierung

LESS combines the highest efficiency for more power with less energy consumption for lower emissions. This creates a sustainable future for mobility. The basis of  environmentally friendly sealing technology is the materials expertise and innovative strength of Freudenberg Sealing Technologies.

Downsizing

Downsizing

Downsizing allows small-volume engines with turbo power to make a big impact. Minimized installation spaces require new solutions in sealing technology, for example in terms of heat and pressure resistance. Moreover, the integration of additional functions into a sealing component literally creates room for optimizations.
