GGB’s engineered plastics solutions are created using thermoplastic bearing material processed by injection molding. Watch as business development specialist, Andrea Epli, and application engineer, Matthew Steiner, walk us through our series of EP® polymer bearings and the different materials, polymers, fibers and key components that make up this best-in-class tribological solution.

Every industry has its own set of challenging requirements and applications, and our EP® line of tribological products are designed specifically to reduce and eliminate the need for costly maintenance or replacement of your bearing systems across a wide range of applications including: automotive, aerospace, food and beverage packing, medical, oil and gas, construction, agriculture, recreational, railway and energy. In the automotive industry, EP® products are being used in applications such as automatic gears, pumps, sealing for turbo compressors, piston rings and valve seats. In the aerospace industry they offer weight savings in compressor blades for turbojet engines.

Our line of EP® surface engineering solutions provide excellent wear resistance and low friction in both dry and lubricated operating conditions over a wide range of applications. Consisting of nine different materials, EP® products are made of a variety of resins compounded with reinforcing fibers and solid lubricant. They exhibit excellent dimensional stability, low coefficients of friction, high compressive strength and creep resistance, low thermal expansion and good thermal conductivity.

As bearings can affect other components including housing, shaft and support structures, selecting the right tribological solution is critical for manufacturers and suppliers. GGB self-lubricating EP® materials offer a number of advantages including noise elimination, vibration damping, improved comfort, weight reduction and increased lifespan of your components.

GGB video - what are plain bearings

This 2:32 video serves as an introduction to basic design and functions of plain bearings. Plain bearings, also known as bushes, bushings or sleeve bearings are usually cylindrical in shape and contain no moving parts. GGB offers standard configurations that typically include cylindrical bearings, flanged bearings, thrust washers, flanged thrust washers and sliding plates.
