Federal-Mogul will showcase its range of brake friction products, including friction pads with low-copper and zero-copper formulations, available in non-asbestos organic or low steel.

The company's MicroTorq crankshaft seals, IROX polymer-coated engine bearings and new CrushShield systems protection sleeve, which is a protective product for high voltage cables of electric and hybrid electric vehicles, also will be on display.
