More and more automotive components are now being made of plastic. Plastics generally allow parts to be built with lower weight and, due to the enormous variety of ways in which plastic materials can be shaped, many designs have only now become feasible. Because of the possible interaction between plastics and lubricants, it makes sense to consult an expert on the lubrication of plastics, such as Klüber Lubrication, at an early stage, especially when developing safety-relevant components such as electric power steering or electromechanical brakes.
