Federal-Mogul Corporation : FEDERAL-MOGUL EARNS TWO 2013 AUTOMOTIVE NEWS PACE AWARDS Company Recognized for IROX^® Engine Bearings Product Innovation and High-Modulus Bonded Piston Manufacturing Process Innovation SOUTHFIELD, Mich., April 16, 2013 . Federal-Mogul Corporation's (NASDAQ: FDML) Powertrain Segment was the recipient of two 2013 Automotive News PACE(TM) Awards at ablack-tie ceremony on April 15 in Detroit. The prestigious award recognizes automotive suppliers for superior innovation, technological advancement and business performance. The company's IROX^® engine bearings were recognized in the Product category, which highlights innovations in new products, components or systems that have significant market impact and act as "game changers" in the automotive industry. Federal-Mogul's Injection Molding Process for High Modulus Bonded Pistons was a winner in the Manufacturing Process category, which recognizes significant manufacturing or business processes that support the automotive supply chain. The company's High Performance Aluminum Diesel Piston was a PACE Finalist. "The PACE process is an invaluable way to showcase the capabilities of our world-class powertrain technologies and teams," said Gian Maria Olivetti, vice president, technology and innovation, Federal-Mogul Powertrain. "We're extremely honored to receive these prestigious awards, which underscores our commitment to providing customers with innovative, world-class products and technologies." Overview of Technologies IROX is an innovative polymer-coated engine bearing that strongly supports reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. It withstands high mechanical loads in efficient, heavily boosted engines and also addresses thelubrication challenges associated with frequent re-starts found in stop-start engines. In extreme duty applications, the IROX coating can extend bearing life by more than five times. Since its series production introduction in 2010, Federal-Mogul has seen a dramatic increase in worldwide demand. For the company's Injection Molding Process for High Modulus Bonded Pistons, Federal-Mogul introduced a new Unipiston^® with a new high modulus material that meets European customer requirements and is more environmentally-friendly. The new product required significant manufacturing process innovation, including a unique valve-gate tool design and greater injection pressure. With optimized geometry, Federal-Mogul's Unipistons can help enable customers to improve transmission efficiency, resulting in better fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions. Federal-Mogul's High Performance Aluminum Diesel Piston was named a finalist in the Product category. The piston features casting and inspection processes that enable increased piston performance, including a die cooling concept which helps to increase high cycle mechanical fatigue strength by nearly 10 percent in the pin bore and bowl rim areas of the piston. Federal-Mogul also utilized a new non-destructive testing method, which provides increased sensitivity to inspection areas. Federal-Mogul has previously won ten Automotive News PACE Awards. The company received a PACE award in 2012 for its Two-Dimensional Ultrasonic Testing for Raised Gallery Pistons; two PACE Awards in 2011 for its EcoTough^®-coated piston and LKZ^® oil control ring and three in 2010 for its DuraBowl^® piston reinforcement process, High Precision Electro-Erosion Machining (HPEEM) manufacturing process and Bayonet Connection System for profile wiper blades. The company also was honored with PACE Awards for its High-Temperature Alloy (HTA) gaskets and Goetze^® Diamond Coating (GDC^®) for piston rings in 2007; for its Monosteel^® diesel piston in 2006; and for its Wagner^® ThermoQuiet^® brake pads and shoes in 2003. The 19th annual PACE (Premier Automotive Suppliers' Contribution to Excellence) Award was presented by Automotive News, Ernst & Young LLP and Transportation Research Center Inc. (TRC Inc.). The competition was open to suppliers who contribute products, processes, materials or services directly to the manufacture of cars or trucks.
