Drivetrain low friction seals made from PTFE material compounds are particularly beneficial in automotive design and becoming instrumental in equipment design, as new applications require greater endurance to extremely harsh chemicals, high surface speeds, high temperatures, and dry running conditions. The demand for better fuel mileage requires reduced friction and torque to rotate in all assemblies including seals.  Therefore, seals rely on inert, low-friction materials such as PTFE to increase efficiency.
