WHY POLYURETHANE SUSPENSION BUSHES?

Time to do some sums…

WHY POLYURETHANE SUSPENSION BUSHES?Polyurethane has been with us as a specialised plastic for some thirty years. However recent advances have now made it possible to engineer very special properties into this exciting material. Suspension bushes are some of the most highly stressed components fitted to a motor car. They undergo enormous strains and in the most arduous of conditions with no maintenance or lubrication. 

The material they are manufactured from is a rubber compound containing natural products which deteriorate with age. It becomes softer and more pliable, resisting the forces placed on it less and less. Therefore allowing more and more movement of suspension components and offering less and less control over the suspension geometry.

This in turn causes accelerated tyre wear, braking instability and poor handling. This is the single biggest reason you can instantly tell the difference driving a three year old car compared to a showroom new one. However even new cars will benefit from POWERFLEX bushes because of their superior design they offer much more effective control of the suspension components to a much greater extent than normal rubber items.

POWERFLEX for prolonged tyre life.With the technological advances in this material it has been possible to overcome the common problem associated with harder bushes which is increased noise. By correctly engineering the polyurethane compound, bushes can be made 25-30% stiffer than new rubber items but with exactly the same noise absorbing properties. 

  • POWERFLEX bushes make sense.
  • POWERFLEX for improved performance.
  • POWERFLEX for increased safety.

Great to see the team at @fh.one assembling this wonderful selection of Audi products. Is there anything nicer when putting a chassis back together?

Factoryhall.one-Querlenker-Satz Audi A4 B6/B7 Powerflex RoadSerie

In Zusammenarbeit mit Powerflex/DE Markführer im Bereich Polyurethane Fahrwerksbuchsen bieten wir Querlenkersätze für den alltäglichen Gebrauch oder Motorsport. Erhältlich in zwei verschiedenen Varianten: 
RoadSerie wie es der Name schon sagt, für die Straße. In der Farbe Lila mit 80Shore härtegrad, dies ist ca. 10-15% härter als die originale Gummi-Serienbuchse. 
BlackSerie in der Farbe Schwarz für Motorsport und Rennstrecke. Diese Buchsen haben einen Härtegrad von 95Shore. 
Beide Varianten sind auch erhältlich mit Sturzkorrektur, für Fahrzeuge die nach einer Tieferlegung nicht mehr auf die Hersteller Sollwerte ihrer Achsgeometrie kommen. Haben sie so die Möglichkeit Ihren Sturz bis zu 1,5grad zu korrigieren. 
Da uns häufig die Frage gestellt wird, welche Querlenker wir verwenden: 
Wir benutzen ausschließlich Querlenker unserer Hausmarke „FACTORYHALL.ONE“ die spezifisch für uns gefertigt werden, dabei achten wir stets auf eine gute Verarbeitung der Kugelgelenke. 
Vorteile gegenüber originalen Fahrwerksbuchsen: -bessere Stabilität des Fahrwerkes -Erhöhung von Sicherheit und Fahrkomfort -längere Lebensdauer der Reifen -verbessertes Handling und Fahrgefühl -präziseres Lenkverhalten -Enorme Lebensdauer gegenüber herkömmlichen Buchsen (lebenslange Garantie auf Pu-Buchsen)
