With conventional oil shock absorbers, intensive use can cause the formation of oil foam, which can reduce damping force by up to 35% at higher temperatures. To solve this problem, we developed BILSTEIN gas pressure technology in the 1950s. With the first series installation of the monotube gas shock absorber at Mercedes-Benz in 1957, we still have a firmly established gas pressure technology in automotive construction today, in monotube and twin-tube versions. This means reliable damping and suspension regardless of the demands and greater safety reserves in all dynamic driving situations. BILSTEIN gas pressure shock absorbers offer.
