Reducing weight, friction, and driving resistance is crucial for an enhanced fuel economy. The friction between the piston and cylinder is one of the main factors for energy loss in combustion engines. Hyundai has developed a new type of coating technology for piston skirts: a PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) and nano-sized diamond composite.
