With more than 70 years of experience developing high duty friction and wear materials for both sliding bearings and seal components, Morgan's siliconized graphite materials set the bar for mating pairs over thirty years ago, in terms of abrasion resistance and load carrying capability. In the past few decades, Morgan has led the industry in developing the next generations of tribological materials that offer improved strength and hardness, abrasion and corrosion resistance, stiffness, and performance.

With its extensive portfolio of both mechanical carbon and silicon carbide materials, Morgan's Engineers help customers to evaluate materials in order to select the right one for a particular application.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
