Providing design freedom for more efficient tribological surface solutions
For more than 115 years, GGB has provided solutions to reduce friction and optimize product design through innovative plain bearing technologies.
Today, GGB extends its wealth of expertise and history to lead polymer coatings into the field of tribology to fully embrace the performance benefits that this technology has to offer. As a global company able to formulate and tailor the coating composition to the needs of the application, we promote development partnerships to help innovate and optimize unique solutions for you. In addition to this expertise in advanced surface technology and tribology, our production facilities can supply the finished coated components, in low or high volumes, directly to our customers.
Our comprehensive approach to surface engineering revolutionizes tribology solutions and, in turn, allows our customers to take their application performance to the next level.
Our specially formulated polymer coatings offer many significant advantages for applications ranging from aerospace interiors to automotive solenoids and transmissions. That’s because they can be applied to practically any surface in low or high volumes.
Polymer coatings provide tailored friction levels to the many other complex shaped sliding surfaces that traditional cylindrical bearings cannot access. This allows for a more simplistic design that employs fewer parts. And with less demanding specifications for surface finishing or hardness, it can help you save space and reduce weight. Plus, it can eliminate the need for traditional bearings in certain applications.
Most metallic substrates
Majority of metallic substrates can be coated, including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, magnesium and many others. It can be considered to coat polymeric and composite substrates. Please contact our GGB experts.
BECAUSE THEY CAN BE APPLIED TO PRACTICALLY ANY SURFACE, THE POTENTIAL OF OUR COATINGS IS NEARLY LIMITLESS.
Chemical and corrosion protection
Our advanced coating formulas also feature exceptional chemical and corrosion protection, offering a barrier of inert material between surfaces to extend longevity.
Easy to customize
GGB’s surface engineering and formulation expertise allows coatings to be easily tailored to the unique needs of your application.
Polymer coatings incorporate solid lubricants to deliver self lubricity that can help reduce and sometimes eliminate the need for additional lubrication in machine parts. This means parts stay cleaner, which reduces the likelihood of contaminating nearby systems.
The polymer triangle is a common way to map or represent the many standard polymers available today. GGB’s standard range has been formulated to ensure the full performance of today’s polymers is realized. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. GGB can further customize them to any of your specific needs.
