The new engineered plastics tribological material adds to their tribological range of products
GGB announces the development of EP®30, the newest addition to their light-weight engineered plastics product range. EP®30 tribological material is made-to-order in a wide range of standard and custom shapes, and provide good to very good dry and lubricated performance in applications as diverse as office and sports equipment, automobiles, domestic appliances and chemical-processing equipment.
More specifically, EP®30 extends the current engineered plastics product range in terms of improved temperature resistance and damping effect to reduce noise. It provides the ideal combination of performance and price for certain applications, such as water pumps both in automotive and industrial applications, pulley dampers, automotive interiors, seat sliders and hydrodynamic applications. EP®30 also offers the following characteristics:
“We are very pleased to add the EP®30 tribological material to our portfolio, as we recognize the importance of creating materials to satisfy the increasing performance demands of our customers´ applications,” said Paul Pathikal, VP of Strategy and Marketing. “To be a thought leader in the industry, we must actively develop new ideas by listening to our customers and identifying their needs.”
