New bush range from Ter­rain Tamer

Motor Equipment News - - NEWS -

Ter­rain Tamer has an­nounced a new range of rub­ber and syn­thetic elas­tomer Pro bushes as an ad­di­tion to its al­ready ex­ten­sive cat­a­logue of sus­pen­sion parts.

While many rub­ber bushes on the mar­ket are made from com­pounds con­tain­ing clay, grit and other im­pu­ri­ties, Ter­rain Tamer’s new rub­ber bushes are made from a pure rub­ber com­po­si­tion, en­sur­ing their per­for­mance ex­ceeds that of the orig­i­nal equiv­a­lent.

Cre­ated in con­junc­tion with an OE man­u­fac­turer, the bushes fea­ture Ter­rain Tamer mark­ings and have been made us­ing unique clamp shell cast­ings.

Made from a syn­thetic elas­tomer com­pound, the new state-of-theart Pro bushes com­plete the range, com­bin­ing the ride feel that is typ­i­cal from rub­ber, with the qual­ity and dura­bil­ity found in a syn­thetic bush.

This ma­te­rial is specif­i­cally de­signed to be durable in high hu­mid­ity cli­mates with­out crum­bling like some polyurethanes are prone to do, and is re­sis­tant to oils, chem­i­cals and weath­er­ing. When life­cy­cle tested against sam­ples of seven glob­ally mar­keted brands of polyurethane re­place­ment bushes, the Ter­rain Tamer Pro bush sig­nif­i­cantly out­per­formed all other sam­ples, with re­sults 57 per­cent bet­ter than the next best per­form­ing bush, and more than 184 times bet­ter than the poor­est.

Af­ter strin­gent test­ing up to 2.5 mil­lion cy­cles, Ter­rain Tamer Pro bushes showed op­ti­mal grease re­ten­tion and min­i­mal signs of wear, sup­port­ing the in­crease in strength, dura­bil­ity and ge­om­e­try pro­vided by the syn­thetic elas­tomer com­pound, as well as bet­ter mem­ory, com­pres­sion and abra­sion re­sis­tance.

“Sus­pen­sion bushes are of­ten the last part of a sus­pen­sion kit that is con­sid­ered by the owner, yet they are of­ten the first item to per­ish,” says Ter­rain Tamer mar­ket­ing man­ager Brent Hutchin­son.

“The dif­fi­culty in bush man­u­fac­tur­ing has al­ways been the bal­ance be­tween dura­bil­ity and flex­i­bil­ity. Us­ing old tech­nol­ogy, a poly bush would be far more abrupt on the sus­pen­sion com­po­nents and de­liver a harsher ride when com­pared to rub­ber, but with to­day’s tech­nol­ogy and the elas­tomer com­pound, we’ve been able to bridge that gap in com­fort be­tween the syn­thetic and rub­ber bushes.”

Ter­rain Tamer Pro bushes come with a life­time war­ranty. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 09 263 6021 or visit ter­rain­
