GGB’s PTFE based metal-polymer materials offer excellent low friction performance and high wear resistance in a wide range of loads, speeds and temperatures; with or without external lubrication. These materials are used extensively in a diverse range of industrial and automotive applications. The GGB metal-polymer product range includes DU®, DU®B, DP4™, DP4B™, DP10™, DP11™, DP31™, DX®, DX®10, DS™ and HI-EX®.
Solid Polymer Materials
Thermoplastic materials processed by injection moulding. The engineering polymers include PA-based EP™, POM-based EP12™, PBT-based EP22™, PPS-based EP43™ and EP44™, PEEK-based EP63™ and EP64™, and PAI-based EP73™ and EP79™. EP, EP22, EP43 and EP63 are available in standard cylindrical and flanged bearings, as well as special dimensions and shapes. All of the other EP materials are available by special order. Also offered are POM-based Glacetal KA™ and Multilube® engineering thermoplastics.
Filament Wound Materials
This range of products typically consists of a filament-wound, fiberglass-impregnated, epoxy backing with a variety of low-friction wear-resistant bearing linings. The reinforced composite structure associated with GAR-MAX®, GAR-FIL®, High Strength GAR-MAX®, MEGALIFE®XT and SBC™ enables the bearing to support high static and dynamic loads. Furthermore, the inert nature of the materials makes these products ideal for corrosive environments such as seawater and acidic environments. The environmentally friendly HPM™ and HPF™ were both specifically developed for hydropower applications, have a high load capacity, excellent shock and edge loading capacity, excellent corrosion resistance, and are dimensionally stable. These products are available as bushes, plates, bearing segments and special forms depending on the particular material type.
|Bushing Blocks and Thrust Plates|
High precision bushing blocks made from GGB proprietary aluminium alloys (Sical 3™, Sical 3D™, Pical 2™ and Pical 3™) with very good friction and wear resistance supplied with our without pre-installed GGB metal-polymer cylindrical bearings.
We have a broad range of monometallic, bimetallic, sinter bronze bearings and our DB™ bearings, which are ideal for industrial applications on both land and underwater. Our range of impregnated solid bronze bearings is intended for use in maintenance-free operations, under moderately high speeds and low loads. Designed for lubricated conditions , our mono- and bimetallic bearings are suitable for use in a wide range of operating conditions.
Additional product families to complement the above GGB product portfolio, e.g. specialized housings and assemblies. UNI™, MINI™, and EXALIGN™ self-aligning bearing housings are designed to be used with our range of metal polymer bearings.
