DuraForm-G91T Aluminum Alloy for Diesel Pistons
2019 - PACE Award Finalist
What: High-strength alloy yields piston durability
Innovation: Federal-Mogul is using a new aluminum alloy to produce pistons for diesel engines that boost efficiency and cut carbon dioxide emissions. The high-strength alloy addresses many common reasons why pistons fail, including oxidation, fatigue and increased stress from mechanical and thermomechanical loading. Pistons cast from DuraForm-G91 can weigh nearly one-fourth less than conventional pistons.
