CVJ Boots

Constant velocity (CV) joints are essential for transferring power from the transmission of a car to its wheels. CV joints are covered by a rubber or plastic boot, knows as a CVJ boot (or CV boot). These ‘boots’ are responsible for keeping the joints lubricated and preventing dirt and water from getting in and causing damage.

Award-winning Hytrel® has been the material of choice for CVJ boots for 30 years and is proud to boast no material failures on the road during this time. It is the preferred material against traditional rubber because it is thinner and more durable. It also allows the design of smaller sized boots due to its design flexibility, reducing cost significantly.
