Product serves the solar power industry and recreational outdoor applications
GGB, an industry leader and innovator in tribology and surface engineering technologies, announces the launch of the new EP®15 material. This new addition to the Engineered Plastics product range is designed to withstand the demanding conditions and UV rays of the commercial solar power industry and other outdoor applications.
In order to create the most efficient solar power operations, engineers and plant managers face a variety of challenges. These include durability, longevity, cost of lubrication, UV resistance and ease of installation. GGB’s new EP®15 solution delivers on all these important aspects of a successful solar power setup.
With a temperature range of -40 through 125 degrees Celsius, the EP®15 bearing can stand up to harsh weather conditions. It also exhibits excellent strength, thermal conductivity and moisture absorption.
“The stakes are high in the solar energy industry, and even minimal downtime can cost tens of thousands of dollars in lost energy production,” said Andreas Epli, business development specialist at GGB. “They need products that perform day after day, and we’re proud to support them with the new EP®15.”
