Corteco Broadens Portfolio in Heavy-Duty Segment

Corteco Broadens Portfolio in Heavy-Duty Segment

The company said it plans to introduce new product families, such as accumulators, in 2024.

Corteco announced an increased presence in the heavy-duty aftermarket segment with plans to broaden product range expansions in 2024.

Corteco’s products for the heavy-duty aftermarket currently focus on radial shaft seals. The company said it plans to introduce new product families, such as accumulators, to the aftermarket delivery program for the heavy-duty sector this year.

“Applying the quality of series production directly to the independent aftermarket is not an additional expenditure for us, it’s a logical consequence. We benefit from our wide-ranging experience and the very strict requirements of series development, especially in the automotive sector. These can also be applied perfectly to the heavy-duty market. That is why we will continue to expand our range in this area,” says Dr. Christian Dickopf, senior vice president at Freudenberg Sealing Technologies, who is responsible for Corteco.

Corteco tests its product under extreme conditions, with the help of over 300 test rigs, making the company’s test field the largest of its kind in the world, according to Corteco. In a news release, the company explained that its products endure simulated conditions to ensure their performance beyond 300,000 kilometers (186,000 miles).

Heavy-duty seals must resist not only mechanical stress but also extreme temperature variations, chemical exposures, and UV radiation. “These exhaustive tests ensure the products’ readiness for all real-life applications,” Corteco explained.

“A seal that costs just a few euros will protect an investment worth several hundred thousand. So why compromise when you can rely on proven series technology?” Dickopf concludes.
