New MicroTorq™ seals can directly replace existing seals to provide significant improvement in fuel economy and CO2 emissions

Southfield, Michigan, March 18, 2010… Federal-Mogul Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML), a leading global supplier of technologies that enhance safety and improve powertrain efficiency, has developed an innovative new seal design, called MicroTorq™, that reduces friction by up to 70 percent versus conventional lip-type seals.  The new seal can provide an improvement in vehicle fuel economy of up to 0.49 percent and a reduction in CO2 emissions of 1-2 g/km compared to traditional seal designs.  The seals are also easier to install, more accommodating of shaft misalignment or eccentricity, and require less package space.  The many benefits can be achieved relatively simply, even on existing engines as the new MicroTorq seal can be utilized without changing the design of adjacent components.
