THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SHOCK ABSORBERS: 5 GOOD REASONS

Often neglected, they are among the most important elements in a car, because in addition to ensuring excellent road holding, they allow the driver to drive their car with the utmost comfort and safety while maintaining contact between the tires and the roadway.

1 - GREATER ROAD STABILITY
TENUTA STRADA

An efficient shock absorber is synonymous with safety, because if it is partially unloaded, it can lead to a temporary loss of contact between the wheel and the road surface while cornering, compromising control systems such as ABS and ESP.

2 - REDUCED STOPPING DISTANCE
SPAZIO FRENATA RIDOTTO

Functioning shock absorbers contribute to a safe and effective braking while decreasing the stopping distance.

3 - HIT ABSORPTION CAPACITY
ASSORBIMENTO URTI

The ability of absorbing the rebound or recoil strokes caused by the road surface allows to limit damage to other car components such as tire wear and other steering and suspension parts  and headlight misalignment.

4 - STEERING CONTROL
CONTROLLO STERZO

Vehicle stability and steering precision are ensured if the shock absorber keeps the damping force constant, thus reducing the loss of control and the sliding.

5 - DRIVING CONFORT
COMFORT GUIDA

Good shock absorbers reduce car rolling, noise and vibration when in motion, thus providing an enjoyable, comfortable and dynamic driving.

TWIN-TUBE: maximum protection

The cylindrical body of the shock absorber consists of two coaxial tubes made of FE360B, very wear and stress resistant, with CNC machining and a protective coating treatment.

ROD and PISTON : resistance and durability.

The C45 or C35 steel rod is machined with a high-tech grinding process and with chrome plating. This gives a smooth, precise surface with a roughness of less than 0.05 µm and a tolerance of 0.005 mm roundness. The high-strength sintered steel piston rod with Teflon coating has an anti-grip effect for better sliding and less wear.

CONTROL VALVES: road stability safety.

Double-stage valves with calibration up to 1/100 mm allow greater control of the damping force specific to each vehicle, delaying the compression and extension of the piston. 

NITROGEN GAS: high performance in all road conditions

Pressurized nitrogen minimizes cavitation phenomena and contributes to damping action.

OIL SEAL ROD : as from the first plant (NOK)

Japanese Seals NOK, world leader, are made of nitrile synthetic rubber (NBR) with high wear resistance. The double sealing lip protects against oil leaks for longer service life.

OIL SV3: ideal for any temperature

Synthetic base oil with low emulsion level. It always keeps the surfaces apart at all temperature conditions (even at -40 ° C), eliminating the harmful effects of cavitation. The use of a low viscosity grade oil (3.5 mm2 / s) is synonymous with a high precision machining of all components in contact with the oil.

 

PUNCH MARKING

Each shock absorber  can be traced by the product and batch code punch marking .
