WINNER: Coating lengthens life of engine bearing shells

Federal-Mogul Corp., Powertrain, Bearings and Ignition

What: IROX highly effective coating for engine bearings

Innovation: The polymer coating, reinforced with hard oxide particles, reduces friction on bearing shells. Federal-Mogul estimates that the coating can lengthen the life of bearing shells fivefold from traditional coatings under extreme conditions created by direct-injected engines and stop-start operation.
