At the top of the line is the Mahle Clevite TriArmor bearing. The TriArmor is a low-friction PTFE polymer base that offers extraordinary protection and lubricity. A thin uniform coating reduces friction and drag, resulting in increased horsepower and protection during start-up. Embedded directly into the babbit material to resist damage from debris, it has the ability to withstand extreme temperatures and pressures. All of this increased bearing life in performance and race applications.
